I have a pair of duovid 10+15x50 binoculars. There is a small tear in the rubber coating on the body of the set. Does anyone know how much it would cost to repair or how to get a price to repair.

8x25 minolta compact bionoculars center focus knob will not turn. Have taken screw off center knob and removed 4 rubber strips on bionocular body and looks like allen? screw underneath. No obvious way...


They don't make these things easy to take apart, or fix. Here's your best shot- take it into a camera repair shop, and see what they say. Some tech might know what you have to do to get it apart, or if it can come apart without damage or special tools.
Unfortunately, only the repair techs know how, and there aren't too many (if any) of them, since they often just charge a set amount and send a refurbished or new pair to the customer.
Wish I had a more specific answer, but good luck to you, and with just a bit, you'll figure this out.

Dropped new Celestron Skymaster 15x70 binoculars. Nothing appears broken, but now have two images. Can I repair this. and how? Thanks. Dan


Don't "unscrew" the binoculars. there are no user servicable parts inside. the collimnation adj screws are beneath the rubber boot just under where your index fingers rest when looking through the bino's. use a jewelers screwdriver to tease the boot up and stick a small nut or something in. then put the binos on a stable surface and play with the screws a bit while watching the images. you can get them pretty close this way.

My Chinon 10x25R binoculars have the same problem.


Simple use soft lint free cloth like old drying up cloth, you need about half a cup of methalayted spirits,can get this from any hardware store.
poke finger into cloth dip into meths proceed to rub sticky coating off binoculars. you will need to keep changing to a new peace of the cloth as soon as it gets coated with the sticky black stuff off binoculars.
keep dipping into meths eventually after say 6 rubs in a particular area you will see and feel a nice hard black plastic, continue all over effected area then finish off with any window cleaner polish until cloth remains clean.STICKY COATING IS NOW GONE IT WAS INFACT A COATING PUT ON THE BINOCULARS TO MAKE THEM NONE SLIP. job done. regards GER8

I have an old pair of bushnell binoculars. only problem I don't know how to find them online they are silver like and come in a old brown case and they were made in japan. triple tested coated optics says...


If you do an image search for Nikon Mikron and the one you have looks the same then you have a Bushnell copy from the 1950's called the Palm Pocket. These appeared in the 1950's. The 6x18 was available from 1951. The 7x18 and can be found in the Bushnell 1958 catalogue. By the 1965 catalogue they had gone from the product line up. If you look around the body of the binoculars you may find a code beginning with JB or JL followed by a number. This number will give the name of the Japanese manufacturer who made them for Bushnell. If you get the number go here for the codes

The Palm Pocket came in 7x18 and 6x18 designs. A larger model the Broadfield was available with 25mm objectives

Locked keys in car


find a small wedge such as a small peice of tapered wood or plastic. wedge this in between the top of the door and body by using a small rybber mallet or the palm of your hand with a glove but be careful not to bend the door to far and break the glass (wedge it away from the body no more than about 1.5 inches). just enough to get a wire or coat hanger in there to move freely and easily hit the unlock button. Also watch that you dont tear the roofs rubber weatherstripping when sliding the wedge into place. Good Luck!!!

Bent


Not likely. These binocs are reviewed elsewhere by many, and appear to be pretty much cheap junk.

I happen to have a pair, and the right lens support that is screwed onto the body is cracked plastic.

Maybe with your set, and mine, we could make one good, functional unit... but when you could buy another (ah ma zon dot c o m) for less than 11 dollars, why bother.

Sorry... but they just aren't really very well made. As to the bent focus mech you have, I doubt you could obtain a part, anywhere, to replace the bent one. You might try to straighten the bent part by careful disassembly of the body, but do know that there's a bunch of glued together parts in these binocs, and not too many parts that can be removed/replaced with screws.

I have the same problem with my Nikon N65 film SLR and I bought a vintage Super 8 movie camera where the rubber had turned to the consistency of gum on a side-walk on a hot summer day. On the a camera I carefully rubbed on a coat of talcum (which probably isn't the best thing to use on a camera but I was careful and it isn't something I do every day). I then took a small square I cut from an old terry towel and used friction and elbow grease to rub off the top layer of the rubber. I then took another square of the towel and dipped it in hot soapy water, squeezed out the excess and washed all that remained. I then took a small water-colour brushed (after I dried the surface of course), and dusted the surface of the rubber with talcum and let it sit overnight. This seemed to stop the derioration and clear off what had built up. The next day I took a very dry damp towell (if that makes sense) and wiped off the surface. It pretty much took care of that problem. That was the Nikon, it was only in the beginning stages, the Super 8 camera which had apparently hadn't been out of the case in 20 years. The Super 8 was so bad that I don't even know what had deteriorated, probably a rubber eye piece, that one was time consuming but basically I put the powder on carefully and just wiped big clumps off the metal eye piece. The powder just served to make it easy to clean up and kept it from turning into a 3 stooges farce with one thing sticking to the other and so on. Well, I hope this helps, I don't know why it works, maybe there's a chemist out there that can explain it to me. Good luck!!
