You may be able to buy a replacement focuser. If not many telescope retailers sell replacement focusers.

Focus knob not working


First of all, make sure the projection lens is correctly inserted. The gear "rack" that runs down the side of the lens correctly should mesh with the white or black gear (color depends on gear vendor) that is pressed on the focus shaft.
Check to make sure the focus knob is secure on the focus shaft (when you turn the knob, the shaft should turn, too).
Finally, remove the projection lens and inspect that black or white gear on the focus shaft inside the projector: Is the gear present, and are all the teeth on the gear?
One or a combination of these 3 issues are more than likely the cause of your problem.
Let me know if I can assist further !! Jim

Neither of the "trademarks" you mention were used by Kodak, so the lens must be a non-Kodak lens. First of all, remove the lens and look along its side - it should have a rectangular "rack" (dimensions of the "rack" are roughly 1/2 inch by 3 1/4 inches) with gear teeth that will connect with the corresponding gear (inside the projector) on the focus knob shaft. If the lens does not have this "rack", then you should try to find a lens that does. (One source for lenses is www.VineValleyImaging.com). Verify that the lens is on the focus knob shaft and does not appear to be damaged. If the gear on the focus shaft is damaged (or slipping) you will need to contact a Authorized Repair Dealer to see if parts are still available for your specific model. Let me know if you need anything else! Good Luck !! Jim

The teeth small pinion gear on the focus knob shaft are stipped


No. That's one of the trade-offs with cheap models, they can be fine but have absolutely no spares back up.

All you can do is to check whether the 'scope is covered by a manufacturer's warranty.
