Question about Redfield Binoculars Aurora Water Proof Black 10x50
I own a 10x50 redfield binoculars that can not focus. The company is now out of business so how do I get them fixed at little or no cost because they have a life time warranty? Or am I simply out of luck?

SOURCE: Binoculars Stiff to focus
if they continue to get stiff then eventually the 3 set screws that hold the focus wheel loosen, and you will have no focus capability, its rare with zeiss but sounds like they should be regreased. the problem is to regrease you have to take completely apart as it is internal focus.if i can help any further contact me@ firstname.lastname@example.org

If it just turns without making the bridge between the two eyepieces move up and down then they are broken. You will need to send them to Bushnell.

The yoke which carries the eyepieces has broken, allowing one lens to move independently of the other.
They can be repaired by replacing the entire yoke assembly (gluing is never accurate enough and never lasts) but the repair will not make economic sense as it will be cheaper to throw them away and buy another pair unless you have them covered by an insurance policy.
Unfortunately, I cannot recommend a Japanese repair outlet, the closest I've used in your part of the world is in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I've always found getting repairs to cameras and other optical devices to be near impossible in Japan due to the prevalent culture of buying new rather than getting things fixed.
Apart from in Kuala Lumpur, I've generally found that optical repair specialists worldwide typically have a six week turnaround time unless you pay a lot extra for the 24/48 hour turnaround aimed at professionals, so even if you can get the repair done cheaply you may decide to just replace them anyway.
However I have found an old list of Nikon repair outlets which you may wish to try and contact to ask for advice.
