SOURCE: case is "sticky" like glue

The same thing happened with my old Praktica Sport Zoom binoculars, and (in my case) found that the sticky coating could be removed by repeated rubbing with paper towels moistened with methylated spirit ("meths"). SAFETY FIRST: If you decide to try this method and have not used meths before, it is a very flammable liquid, and harmful by touch and inhalation, so please wear rubber gloves and do this outdoors or in a well ventilated place and away from sources of heat or fire. That said, it is cheap and readily available from DIY stores, usually in their painting section.

SOURCE: Binocular repair

Yes they can be but need to be completely taken apart and cleaned. The salt will corrode any metal parts such as screws etc. The water may have left a coating on the internal glass services. Any impurities in the water may cause fungus to grow. Professionally done this will cost a tidy sum so a quote would be best. The warranty wouldn't cover water immersion if they are not meant to be waterproof. You could ask but Minolta no longer make binoculars and have forwarded on their servicing here is the web address

You may find that for the cost of repair you can purchase a replacement set. Minolta binoculars are heavily discounted now. For sentimental reasons I have paid more than a binocular is worth to have it repaired.

If you are going to buy a new set and still want to try at home....BE ADVISED this may RUIN the alignment and you should ONLY DO IT if you are going to replace them and DO NOT CARE if they end up in the rubbish bin. THIS IS A LAST RESORT THROW AWAY FIX.

Try and unscrew the objective barrels, the ones with the large lens. If they come off you should have access to the inside. If they don't unscrew easily stop. You will damage them. Flush them out with clean water and let them dry naturally. Avoid letting them dry where dust can enter the inside. This may clear the salt from inside them, Depends on how long since they were dropped into the water. The salt may have caused damage to the glass coatings. When dry, screw the barrels back on. You may end up with a double image. This may be able to be corrected by loosening or tightening the barrels. THIS IS A HACK FIX AND YOU SHOULD ONLY DO IT IF THE COST TO REPAIR IS TOO EXPENSIVE AND YOU ARE GOING TO REPLACE THEM.

Eye rubber for 7X50 military marine


You can get the green eyecups for the military marine model from steinerpartsdirect.com I can also recommend changing the standard neck strap with a neoprene one for an older Steiner Nighthunter that is non cliclock. Makes for a much more confortable carry. Just make sure it is one that loops and isn't click lock.

I have a Minolta Weathermatic 7x50 binoculars that suddenly I cannot get in focus. Additionaly, I see double on everything I view.


really sorry about that godlen_po. I will report the problem to our support team. Anyways your binoculars requires cleaning. Though they are supposedly water proof they can be affected by conditions like humidity after prolonged use. You would need to take it to proffessional for cleaning. Do not I repeat do not attempt to clean it yourself using water or any other cleaning substance like soap etc., as you may damage the lenses permanently. I screwed up my binoculars this way only to know about cleaning later. If you need any help locating the nearest spot where you can get this fixed feel free to post back. I apologize once again for the incovinience caused. I will verify if its on my side and report to the support team.

Thanks,
Sai.
