Sounds like they have been dropped or bumped severely if the optics are misaligned. Secondly the cloudiness in the chambers may well mean that the seal is, or has been breached and moisture is inside the tube. Good quality Bins are nitrogen filled ( not sure if vivitar are ) depends on how high a quality there were rated at.

Your best option is to have them looked at professionally if they are of value to you. Jeweller, or camera stores have repair techs that can correct these anommalies easier and better than an amateur. The repair will also carry a warranty.

I have a pair of Leica 10x42 BN binoculars. One side will not focus. Everything seems to be in working order, I can get the lens to move just to come into focus. Any suggestions?

It sounds like the diopter may be way out of focus. You can fix it yourself if this is the case. Try to disengage it and rotate the wheel 360 degrees. If you're not certain about the procedure, give me a call and I can walk you through it.

Loose hinge _ Bushnell small binocs - 8 x 21; 392 FT at 1000 Yds.

Bushnells are inexpensive binoculars. A repair would cost more than a new one. If they are out of alignment to have them collimated would take time and that translates to expense. Its not something that can be done at home without a collimator. New ones similar to yours can be found online for between twenty to forty US dollars. Binoculars today can be bought much cheaper than a few years ago. If you are happy with the use you have had from your Bushnells an update won't break the bank.
