SOURCE: double vision

The yoke which connects the eyepieces and keeps them aligned as the focus changes is damaged. If you can easily move one eyepiece back and forth with respect to the other then the yoke has broken, if not then it's bent, probably cracked and waiting to break.This is easily the most common fault on most binoculars, and it's always uneconomic to repair on budget brands such as Bushnell.

If bent, the yoke *might* be able to be straightened, but it will be weakened and the alignment afterwards will rarely be spot-on. If broken, then the yoke must be replaced professionally but the repair will cost more than replacing the binoculars with new. In any case, it's unlikely that Bushnell even list the spare part for it. The break cannot be simply glued: the contact area is too small to carry the loads it has to carry, and you also usually find that the yoke bent before breaking anyway so you then have all the same problems as you do with a bent yoke.

The fragile nature of the yoke is why binoculars must always be inserted into their case with the objective lenses facing down; this avoids shock loads on the delicate yoke assembly.

I hope that you've found my posting to be of use and in return ask only that you take a moment to rate my answer.

I'm assuming you have set the dioptre correctly for your eyes.

Normally this is caused by a collimation error when one (or both) prisms move. This can be by a small amount.

Your going to have to take them in for service/repair to fix this as is not a DIY problem. (Unless of course you have a collimator lying around)

If it just turns without making the bridge between the two eyepieces move up and down then they are broken. You will need to send them to Bushnell.

This depends on where you are geographically located. If you are in Australia there are only one or two people who can help. If you are in the USA the same applies. Try typing in "binocular repairs" into Google and see what pops up. For example in Australia you will find "The Binocular & Telescope Shop" and "York Optical" pop up.

Does anyone have a diagram or instructions on how to disassemble a Chinon Splash 10x42 binocular (waterproof)


Bryan, If lens was moving before, try a little heat on thimble, from a hair dryer to free it up, caution do not overheat as you do not want to cause distortion.
Check the attached link,instruction and guide, Good luck

I have a pair of Bushnell 20x50 Powerview getting double vision. Can focus each side by themsleves but not together.


Sorry to say but it sounds as if the binoculars have suffered a jolt.

All bincoculars are collimated at the factory so they will focus together at a "central point".

Some Binocular dealers will check the collimnation prior to shipping.. and make adjustments as needed..

If the internal prisms were shifted out of place or the frame was bent.. chances are it will be cheaper to replace then to repair... if not impossible to repair.

Inspect the frame.. to check for any debris or loose fasteners.. but I am afraid that these will need to be replaced.

Best of luck

The diopter setting eyepiece has come out of the body of my Bushnell 10X42 ''Waterproof'' binoculars, model 13-2410. I see keyways inside, but cannot screw it back in more than about 1/4 turn, which is...


The entire diopter setting eyepiece was off.I separated the eye cup from the rest of the diopter setting eyepiece, and aligned the channel guides on the lens piece to slide it into place. Then holding it in place, taking care not to gum up the lens, I experimented with how to screw in the retainer ring so that its white dot registered correctly. Finally reattach the eye cup and focus. It's like new!

Bushnell night vision binoculars


They do stay on for a while after switch, that is OK. Dim and out of focus may indicate that the output voltage is low. If replacing the battery does not fix it, then the problem may be in the power supply circuit.

Double vision


The distance between the centers of the eyepieces of your binocular must be the same as the distance between your pupils. This distance is adjusted as follows: 1. Focus on a distant object. 2. Pivot the two halves of your binocular farther or closer apart until you can see a single unobstructed, circular field of view. Make sure to focus on a distant object when you do this because when you focus on a close object you always see two slightly overlapping circular fields. Your binocular may have a scale on the top, between the eyepieces, to help you remember this setting.
