Depending on the brand ( Zeiss, Bushnell which are good quality) the cost of repair will vary. Most Jewellers or camera, or even a camping store can send your bins out for a quote. Spares can be bought for a moderate fee, as the cover caps and eyepiece rubbers are pretty much standard size items ( Estimated cost $20 + labour) cheaper to buy parts and install it yourself. This is not a difficult task aqnd will save you labour cost.

Thanks for using FIXYA

How to open sony rmvlz620


I have a Sony RM-VLZ620T IR Remote Control.
This remote consits of:
(Outside)
- Two pieces of black plastic cover.
- A red plastic cover on the front of the Remote (It covers the IR leds)
- One piece of gray rubber stripe with fixing patents(!) around on the sidewall of the remote.
(Inside)
- One piece rubber sheet with the buttons.
- One piece circuit board with battery fixer metalic springs.

1. Removing the gray stripe.
Be gently to avoid to tear apart the rubber fixing patents. (There are three kind) It's much easier if you start from the back of the remote near the arc and move forward one by one. Use a small screwdriver or a plastic tool.
2. Opening the cover (together with gray stripe removal)
There are 5 rectangle shaped "holes" (~7mmx2mm) on the both side of the upper black plastic part of the cover (2x5). Use a screwdriver to lift them up (away from the bottom part) one by one from the back to the front.
Hole positions:
1. Near the sony logo
2. Next to the 1,3 channel buttons.
3. Next to the heart and info buttons.
4. Next to the record and stop buttons.
5. Next to the set and power button.

Minolta Compact II Binoculars - the focusing adjustment is seized, how do I free it?


The adjusting knob has a rubber cover over it. Remove the rubber cover and take out the phillips head screw underneath. Then turn the adjusting knob all the way left with a pair of pliers and continue turning and it will unscrew and come off. Underneath you will find a metal lock nut, when you loosen this you will find the adjusting knob is suddenly not frozen anymore. It seems that this nut tightens over time to the point where the whole mechanism freezes. You can take the nut off and put some thread lock on the threads and tighten it just enough and it won't happen again. Cheers.

I see double image unless I take the lens as close as the binoculars can go


thats how binoculars are. Yours in this case is really strong. the closer you are to something, looking at it, the more magiflyed you going to be. try view things far a distance, really far away. no more double right?
Everything you need to know to become an expert:
on this website: http://www.chuckhawks.com/binocular_basics.htm
It is surprising how many people do not know how to focus binoculars correctly. There are two common focusing systems used in binoculars.
The first is individual eyepiece focus. This system is simple to understand, and easy to manufacture. It also lends itself well to sealed optical tubes, and thus is usually the focusing system used for waterproof binoculars. Individual eyepiece focus means that to focus the binoculars to your eyes, you simply focus the left eyepiece to your left eye and the right eyepiece to your right eye. There is no centrally located focusing mechanism. It is done like this. Look at something in the distance. Close the right eye (or cover the front of the right binocular), and focus the left eyepiece to your left eye. Close the left eye (or cover the front of the left binocular), and focus the right eyepiece to your right eye. You are finished, until you need to look at something at a different distance, in which case you need to repeat the process.
Because individual eyepiece focus is time-consuming, center focus is more common. Unfortunately, very few people understand how to correctly use center focus binoculars. Here is how it is done. Aim your binoculars at something in the distance. Close the right eye (or cover the front of the right tube), and focus the left side of the binocular to your left eye using the center focus control, which is concentric with the pivot shaft between the binoculars. (Note: the left eyepiece itself does not focus on center focus binoculars.) Next, close your left eye (or cover the front of the left tube), and focus the right eyepiece to your right eye. DO NOT touch the center focus control while you are focusing the right eyepiece to your right eye. Now you are finished. What you have just done is adjust the binoculars for your individual eyes. (Practically everybody's left and right eyes are different.) From now on, you only need to adjust the center focus control when you look at things at different distances. Center focus is faster and easier to use than individual eyepiece focus, once you have initially set the binoculars for your eyes.
Binoculars are commonly described by using a pair of numbers, as in "7x50" or "8x25." The first of these numbers refers to the magnification offered by the binocular. Magnification is why most people buy a pair of binoculars. In the examples above, "7x" means the binocular makes whatever you look at appear seven times closer than it does to the unaided human eye. "8x" means the binocular makes whatever you look at eight times closer than the unaided human eye. "10x" makes things look ten times closer, and so on. The first number used to describe binoculars always refers to their magnification. Common binocular magnifications are 6x, 7x, 8x, 9x, and 10x.
There are also variable power (zoom) binoculars, such as 7-21x50. These almost always perform much better at the low power setting than they do at the higher settings. This is natural, since the front objective cannot enlarge to let in more light as the power is increased, so the view gets dimmer. At 7x, the 50mm front objective provides a 7.1mm exit pupil, but at 21x, the same front objective provides only a 2.38mm exit pupil. Also, the optical quality of a zoom binocular at any given power is inferior to that of a fixed power binocular of that power. In general, zoom binoculars are not the bargain they seem to be.
Remember that everything (including movement) is magnified when you look through a pair of binoculars, especially your own shakes and tremors. So the higher the power, the harder it seems to hold the binoculars steady. 6, 7, or 8 power binoculars are easier for most people, even those with very steady hands, to hold reasonably still. The higher powers sound like a good deal, but often result in jiggly, blurred views. This is why 7x binoculars are chosen by so many experts, including the military.
Power affects brightness. Other things being equal, the higher the power, the dimmer the view. And power also affects the field of view of the binoculars. Again, everything being equal, the higher the power, the smaller the field of view. So, as you can see, power must be balanced against other desirable characteristics when choosing binoculars.

Yukon Ranger 5 x 42 night vision goggles just stopped working, I put in new batteries, but when I press the ON button the on light, which is red, just flashes maybe 10 times and then all goes black. ???


Hello, let do this. IR illuminator has a montary switch, that is when you push it comes on, and when you release it the IR goes off and it has a red LED to indicate the IR illuminator is being activated.

When you turn you binocular on there will be a green LED activated. This switch is DTSA---double throw sing activated. That is, one throw of the switch it turns on the binocular, the throw will turn off the binocular.

Also within the control panel there is timing circuit to keep the IR illumniator on for ten second the shuts off. Make sure you have the right switches etc. Let me know, then we can brain storm on this matter. stewbison

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.

Need to replace large lens cover for Swarovski binocular 10x42


Try Adorama camera in New York. They are good to deal with. Binoculars.com also used to carry parts but I have found since they sold to a conglomerate their customer service is wanting and i switched to Adorama. They also post international.
