Berger transit won't focus


If you mean your cross hairs wont focus the most likely cause is the cover you are turning is slipping and not actually adjusting the lens. Depending on the model, there are usually a couple small screws that can be tightened to correct this.
If you mean what you're trying to look at (objective) wont focus, then likely the focus tube is no longer making contact with the focus pinion. Look in the objective of your transit, and you should see a tube inside the frame. Turn the focus knob slowly and see if it moves the tube closer and further away. If not the rack and pinion are no longer meshed up. If it does then you have a lens out of place. Disassembly is easy, but reassembly and realigning the lenses is tricky, i would not recommend. A repair shop should be able to take care of this, and make sure it's in proper calibration for not to high a cost.

My 2003 ford focus lost it's power steering, mechanic replaced the rack and pinion thing - lost steering again and now the mechanic says it is the power steering pump. The rack and pinion was replaced...


if the rack and pinion was not leaking or causing problems. then he may of made a wrong move! if the rack was fine before, and you just lost power steering. then it is most likely the power steering pump or the lines that go from rack to the pump. good-day ! if a rack goes bad, you will get a bad steering problem or just bad steering.

I have a Canon Digital Rebel XT camera using a 75-300mm telephoto lens. My problem with the lens is that at times it is hard to adjust the focus either manually or automatically with the camera. I hear...


It sounds like the lens has been dropped or knocked and is misaligned in the guides.
Repair against new lewns is a difficult one as prices vary. I would perhaps consider replacing it with a used one. Before you do borrow a similar lens from someone that has the same mount and ensure it is not also a camera problem.
