Question about Optics
Battery contacts have fallen out of the battery compartment and are lost. Canon can't replace. Have sent to Canon repair dept. and they returned it unfixed saying parts are no longer available.Any suggestions? Binoculars work well but stabilizer component does not.

You're going to have to ohm out or jumper the battery contacts inside the binoculars to see where you're getting a bad flow, and try to address that. Sometimes you can take a think piece of silver coated copper wire, or just copper wire, and make a new contact (solder the wire or glue it to the original contact).
It's really hard to find instructions, per se, for binoculars, since Canon's repair facilities are the guys that have them, but you can learn a lot from blogs about them, in general, and usually enough to get the job done. Just google "binocular repair", and you will find many.
I personally, would not coat the contacts with oil- that will just leave a barrier in the metal to metal contact that is essential in current transfer.
Here's Canon's binocular site, in case you decide to replace some parts:
Good luck, and hope this helps.

SOURCE: The stabilizing motor on my
have the capacitor in the circiut board checked out for if faulty the unit will not operate. Capacitors are fairly cheap at Radio Shack stores
