It was a gift and i have no idea how to use it(AF 10 compact)


Oh, neat! Autofocus binoculars, they run off the same lithium batteries used in cameras (just like an autofocus camera, without the film). Minolta got out of the business in 2006, so unfortunately unable to find a manual, but this eBay listing (for a slightly less powerful unit) covers the basics pretty well.

Minolta Binoculars Autofocus 8X22 6 5 RARE WORKING eBay

From the listing:
Holding down the large button continuously focuses on the subject. The two smaller buttons are to focus manually. Minimum focus distance is about 6 feet. Eyepiece spacing adjustment is with the sliding bar that has a locking lever on the bottom side. Individual diopter adjustment is with the two sliding bars on the bottom, to match each eye to the autofocus.

Minolta Compact AF 8 binocular continually focussing


My Binos are doing the same thing, I think it is some fixed mode it is stuck in. Anyone know how to get is back to normal working? Maybe the big AF button is stuck on?

Help please as I can't find my instruction manual.

I also have 2 eyecaps that have broken or lost.


If you haven't contacted Minolta to purchase a replacement set you could try contacting Binoculars.com in the US. They ship international if need be. If Minolta can't help. Measure the circumference of the eyepiece and you could try a different brand of caps. Steiner Binoculars have a number of different caps and I have used their one piece cover on a number of older binoculars I have to protect the eyepiece when I am out and about. I'm in Australia and have used the above company for these parts and they are very helpful.

I cant find friction adjustment on Minolta 10 x 40 binoculars


Hi Ray:
I have Minolta binoculars with the same issue, I believe that I also have the same Minolta model: 10x40mm, roof mounted prisms, 5.6 degrees, waterproof (WR series) and model number j-b35.

Have you found any solution for the loose center hinge?

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.

Binocular Loss Of Fluid


I never figured out how to fix it but I bought them at REI and they were able to find the receipt and get a warranty repair. One problem is Minolta no longer makes binoculars so a service center takes care of warranties.The Minolta site has details.
