My 18x50 IS binoculars are broken; the right eye piece won't focus and I hear a clunk inside when I turn it over; the left focuses just fine. What can I do and where; here in las vegas?

Sounds like you've dislodged one of the prisms inside. A service center can look it over for you, but from personal experience, it's cheaper to replace them than pay to ship them to/from the service folks plus the estimation fee just to find out that they'll have to be replaced, anyway. Sorry.

Ive got a knocking coming from the rear passenger side of my ford focus. i have renewed the bearings, shoes, cylinder but the noise is still there could it be from anything else. please help

check the rear stabilizer links. there will be a round bar than runs accross the rear suspension. There will be two links that attach this bar to the lower control arm. either one of the links is broken or the bushings that hold the bar in place are worn out.

How do I change my lower contol arm, right side in my 2000 ford focus se?

remove the wheel. then take out the lower ball joint bolt.remove the tie rod from the assembly this makes it easy to swing the assembly back and forth. using a ball joint fork insert it between the the ball joint and lower control arm and wack the end on it till the ball joint separates from the control arm. using a pry bar put it thru the control arm so you can pry down on the control arm to release the ball joint then towards the back of the control arm are 2 nuts remove these and remove the cap that they hold towards the front of the control arm is one more nut remove this one and then pull out the control arm replace in reverse orderonetufshoppe_40.gifonetufshoppe_39.gif

Steward, this is Joe Lalumia-- I have seen your post on various forums. The 14 inch is different from the other smaller LX200 scopes.

Probably Dr. Clay, and or Andrew on the Yahoo Group LX200 forum will know the answer because they service these scopes.

Post a message there (register for free) and one of them will answer you about that very nice scope.

Clear Skies!

They have been dropped and now have a double image

Chuck them away and replace them. Seriously. Your binoculars have suffered the most common fault which occurs to all makes and models: a bent or broken eyepiece yoke assembly.

If broken it cannot be fixed without replacing the whole yoke assembly, and on budget models like anything that Tasco sell it's cheaper to buy new and the spare part is probably unavailable anyway. If the yoke has bent then it's virtually impossible to unbend it without breaking it, and even if you do it's usually not accurate enough. So you try again and it breaks... On the rare occasions where you're lucky enough to get it right, the yoke has fatigue cracks and soon breaks regardless. Due to the loads involved and the tiny contact patch, gluing is a waste of time and usually just turns a broken yoke into a weak and bent yoke.

Given that you can now buy very good quality similar or superior binoculars from Bresser and others for around £10 to £15 new any kind of repair simply makes no sense. There's nothing wrong with cheap binoculars in general, but you have a simple choice; pay a lot for top quality models which then have full after sales and spares back up or pay very little and replace them more often. Even then, the yoke assembly for a high quality brand will pay for around six to eight complete new pairs of low cost binoculars. Your call...

Double vision with the optics. Dropped and now the binocular has double vision.

The yoke which connects the eyepieces and keeps them aligned as the focus changes is damaged. If you can easily move one eyepiece back and forth with respect to the other then the yoke has broken, if not then it's bent, probably cracked and waiting to break.This is probably the most common fault on most binoculars, and it's usually uneconomic to repair.

If bent, the yoke *might* be able to be straightened, but it will be weakened and the alignment afterwards will rarely be spot-on. If broken, then the yoke must be replaced professionally but the repair often costs more than replacing the binoculars with new. The break cannot be simply glued: the contact area is too small to carry the loads it has to carry, and you also usually find that the yoke bent before breaking anyway so you then have all the same problems as you do with a bent yoke.

The fragile nature of the yoke is why binoculars must always be inserted into their case with the objective lenses facing down; this avoids shock loads on the delicate yoke assembly.

If you have a telescope and binocular repair specialist located conveniently to you then it may worth getting an estimate for repairs, but there are few these days with the skills to do so. Minolta no longer exist, so spare parts will be almost as scarce as rocking horse droppings. But if you're in the UK, then visit or phone Kay Optical for advice.

I hope that you've found my posting to be of use and in return ask only that you take a moment to rate my answer.
