Question about Edu-Science (10166) Telescope
First that small telescope will never reach 400 power. The maximum magnification for any telescope is 50 times the aperture. Yours is probably about 2 inches, so 100 power is the max. They lied to you on the box. This is a typical small department store telescope sold by Toys R Us. We receive more complaints about this scope than just about any other telescope.

If the focuser is broken, or the tube is broken you can try taking it back to Toys R Us, however, the repair would cost more than you paid for the scope, and parts are NOT available.
