I have a DS-2000 Series Refracting telescope, it will automatically go up and down with the hand held computer, but will not move side to side.


You DID tighten the clutches-- and you do have fresh batteries in the scope?

Either the hand controller buttons are broken or you have some kind of damage inside the scope base-- or a blown circuit board on that motor.

The battery for the red dot finder scope on my Bushneel 78-9669 scope appears to be dead.\r\nHow do I remove the dead one ? What is the button battery number for a new one? Thanks.......Mike


Most red dot finders use a small watch style battery-- there will either be a compartment underneath and or something that opens on the side that contains the watch battery.

I'm sure this will sound stupid, I just bought a rifle with a Tasco red dot scope on it and have no idea how to activate the scope. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks


No, that doesn't sound stupid. It's always a good idea to get all the information before using firearms and their accessories, and I'm happy to help:

The large knob on top of the scope is the rheostat, which is used to turn on the red dot, and adjust the brightness. It can be adjusted from "1" (dimmest) to "11" (brightest). You'll have to be looking straight down the scope to see the red dot, since it is only visible when you're aiming. If you turn on the scope to the brightest setting, and you look through like you are aiming, and the red dot is still not there (or very dim) then you probably need to replace the battery. It uses a 3 Volt coin-style lithium battery, type 2032. Unscrew the battery compartment on top of the rheostat and put the new battery "+" side up. Then replace the battery cover, and you should be good to go. Turn off the scope when you're done to save the batteries.

Since you bought the rifle with the scope already installed, it's probably already sighted in, or pretty close to being sighted in. Adjusting the windage and elevation on the red dot scope works just like other rifle scopes. The knob on top moves the point of impact up/down, and the knob on the side moves left/right. For this model, each click of adjustment moves the point fo impact by 1/2" at 100 yds, 1/4" at 50 yds, or 1/8" at 25 yds.

Be safe, and have fun!

Unable to use scope because I lost the manual. Don't know how to install the batteries.


There should be a battery compartment on the left side, it holds one of those flat 2032 or other nickle size batteries. I think the battery scope is the one with the red and green dots in it. Hope this helps.

Replace batt on NcStar Scope 3-9x42E


The battery on lighted reticle scopes is located underneath a screw off cap on the rheostat switch usually on the ocular lens housing. Hold the base of the switch with one hand and unscrew the cap with a coin. Replace the battery with a CR2032 button type battery (this is the most common battery size for these)
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

Celestron Nexstar 114gt telescope,hand controller lights up only


Do you have a fresh set of batteries in the scope? Better to use an outside 12 volt power pack with the Celestron 12 volt "cigarette" lighter cable.

This can be three things:

Low power

Bad cable from hand controller to scope.

Or a broken hand controller

Try fresh batteries first.

I need to replace the battery on my centerpoint scope


I'm not sure which model you have but the most common battery location is under the reticle switch on the ocular lens housing, you have to hold the base of the switch with one hand and turn off the cover with a coin in the other hand. The most common battery for these scopes is a CR2032 button style battery.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

Bushnell holo sight


It will test the condition of the batteries. Turn the sight on to its brightest setting and leave it for 2-3 minutes. Then while looking at the red dot, press the battry icon button and hold it in. If the image does nothing, you are good to go. If it starts flashing, then you have less than 20% left in the batteries.
