Question about Pentax PCF V Binocular
You have the classic signs of the most common binocular fault: a bent or broken eyepiece carrier yoke.
The cause is usually due to the binos being dropped or the eyepieces getting knocked. The only cure is a replacement yoke, but the repair is rarely cost-effective unless the binos are really expensive and top-quality models. When last available new, yours sold for just over US$100 and repairs will typically far exceed that price.
Broken/bent yokes cannot be repaired: If bent, then it's near-impossible to unbend them accurately enough and in any case the process will always either break the yoke or will severely weaken it. Broken yokes cannot be glued together as the contact point is just too tiny for the loads it carries, and as it usually bends before breaking you'd simply end up with a bent yoke afterwards even if you could glue them.
