Check the HV to the tube and see if you can see any discolouration or spots on the tube - they often indicate tube failure. Many binoculars use the one power supply for both tubes as the current demand is very low. Often, one tube operation indicates tube failure, but a wire or connection could be at fault.

SOURCE: need to realign the optics for Binoculars

You can't. It needs to be done professionally.

I imagine that you are now finding that whatever you do, you cannot get both eyepieces to focus. Most likely, the carrier yoke for the eyepieces has bent or broken: it's by far the biggest single cause of binocular failure.

If it's bent then straightening it is rarely accurate and usually results in the yoke breaking or leaves it severely weakened and ready to break. If it's broken, the physical loads across such a tiny contact area making gluing impractical. Even in the rare cases where it can be done all that it results in is a yoke which is back in one piece but which is now bent.

In most cases, the cost of repair exceeds the cost of replacing with new, but your binoculars are fairly expensive so that's most unlikely to be the case. But if you want them to work again like a £500+ pair of binoculars then you need to send them for professional repair. If you do it any other way then you may as well throw them away and buy a £15 pair of Bresser Meade 10x50's from LIDL (excellent binos for the price and comparable to many £100 models, but not in the same league as yours when fully functional).

SOURCE: binoculars power on, then immediately

Hello there. Are you pointing your NV binoculars at bright light, if so, please stop. Therefore, if you are not then possibly the iit (image intensifier tube) is bad, or the auto shut-off is also shorted. Night Owl Optics are in El Paso, TX. Call Night Owl up, they won't tell how to fix it. But they will tell where to send it. "It is proporitary" which mean, they are the one to fix it. Sorry, stewbison.

Tasco 307B Binocular can clouded lens be repaired?


It can be replaced, but the cost would be far more than a new pair of binoculars.

I have a pair of Monarch 10 x 42 binoculars with a cracked eyecup. It is an easy fix, so all I need is the part. Can I purchase the part without having to send my binoculars to a repair facility?


Send them back to Nikon. The first pair i had did it twice, then they sent me a brand new pair. Here a year later with new pair the eyecup pieces that turn in and out already have cracks in them again.

I have a pair of Remington Premier 9x63 binoculars that give a double image. I need to get them fixed. Can you help me?


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 except on really high priced and fully supported models such as some Nikons and Leicas (amongst others). Remington are not a specialist binocular manufacturer; most likely they just buy them from a Chinese factory and have their badging stuck on so although they're not especially cheap binoculars (although they are very cheap for 9 x 63's) I doubt very much that spare parts are available for them.

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. But if you're in the UK, then visit or phone Kay Optical for advice. If in north America, then contact Optics Planet for advice as they shift a lot of Remington stock.

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.

Value of the model 172 Jason Binoculars


I'm sorry to say this. Not much. Maybe 30 dollars US on a good day on the auction site if the binoculars are in great condition. Zoom binoculars are not known for their quality optics. Jason binoculars have a small collectable quality in a niche market for old Japanese optics. Just to have not for their optics. Non zoom older Jasons are worth a small amount more.

Missing eyecup


Do you mean the Swift Audubon 8.5x44? If so, for the new model 820 contact Swift Sports Optics. If it's the older model 804 ask around in the forums such as Cloudy Nights. The new model 820 is rubber coated. The old models have a grey crinkle finish.

Hi the ir is not working on my bushnell 26-0400,is there any way you can help (repair ?)


I had the same model, same problem. Bushnell replaced mine under warranty, If they needed to send it for repair it had to go to Russia. I guess it was cheaper to give me a new one. If its not under warranty Bushnell will send it off for you but it will cost quite a bit. My new pair lasted about 2 years with a lot of usage. Gen 1 night vision tubes do not have a very long life span. You may be better served buying a new pair of night vision binos.

The manual of jason 200x telescope


Bushnell purchased Jason in 1992, they can refer you to a manual for similar products that they currently manufacture.

There is no reference to Jason scopes on their website, here's some of the history if your interested: Jake Levin founded Jason/Empire, Inc. in 1947. Jake and his son,
****, started the business by importing binoculars from France, as
well as cigarettes and pearls from the Orient. The product was sold
to jewelry stores and catalog showrooms. The company's name was
created by shortening the name of Jake and Son, to get Jason. Empire
was the name of a brand of products the company sold. Jason's
original location was on the 8th floor of a building at 12th and
Walnut in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The company later moved to
a facility in Kansas City on Warwick Boulevard. As the business
continued to grow, **** was responsible for the expansion and
evolution of the binocular and telescope business into a major
competitor in the U.S. Sports optics market.
Carson Companies, Inc. of Minneapolis acquired Jason/Empire, Inc. in
1977. In 1987, Jason introduced the Perma Focus binocular. This
patented binocular eliminated the need for focusing and revolutionized
the binocular industry. GlassOn, the first binocular exclusively for
eyeglass wearers, was introduced in 1991. The eyeglass wearer could
obtain a wide angle, full field of view when using the binoculars
while wearing eyeglasses. Other innovations included: the graphite
binocular, upscale consumer packaging, **** packaging, the Easy
Track telescope mount, and the telescope dual-position diagonal
eyepiece.

In 1992, Bausch & Lomb a.k.a. Bushnell, purchased Jason from Carlson
Companies and moved the sports optics operation to the current
facility in Overland Park, Kansas. The name of the division was
changed from Bushnell to Bausch & Lomb Sports Optics Division.

Bausch & Lomb divested the Sports Optics Division in 1995 and Bushnell
became a wholly owned subsidiary of Worldwide Sports & Recreation, Inc
(WSR). WSR was a leading designer, manufacturer, and marketer of
brand name sporting goods and outdoor-recreational products.

Since then, Bushnell has changed hands again and the Jason name has
been discontinued. It is no longer used in new products produced by
Bushnell and many of the more popular models were simply rebranded as
Bushnell models.

Who made these marine binoculars?


Without seeing a picture it is difficult but there is hope. Most binoculars branded by companies other than the big three come from China. Namely the Kunming United Optics Corporation. Just type in United optics China into google. Have a look at the BC 6 in the compact binoculars section they may look like your ones. Not many 8x26 units are nitrogen filled so I'm guessing on this one. They have a support section and may be able to help.
