You have asked about what is one of the most common binocular problems. I hope that you don't mind if I paste my generic answer below as there's no point in reinventing the wheel. If the answer does not provide a solution then please state your exact Nikon Action model and add any extra details which may help.

Your binoculars either have a bent or broken yoke assembly (the bit which carries the eyepieces) or one or more prisms have came unseated.

The first repair involves replacing the entire yoke assembly: the part is expensive in comparison to the retail cost of a new pair of binoculars and with labour charges on top is not usually a cost-effective repair except on really high end expensive models and you can buy a brand new pair of Nikon Action binoculars for less than GBP£90.

The second repair is straightforward and fairly quick for anyone with the right collimation equipment, but the screw(s) need to be secured with thread-locking liquid afterwards.

I hope you manage to use this information to fix your binoculars or at least that it assists you to choose your next course of action. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

How can you fix a lense from not wanting to auto focus anymore?


Look for a switch on the lens barrel "AF - M", "A - M" ,"M/A - M",etc. Make sure the lens is set to AF or M/A. These stand for Auto Focus and in the case of the last "M/A"; manual override of Auto Focus. An "M" alone indicates it is in manual focus mode.

If in an auto mode, and it will not focus still, there could be an issue with the focus motor in the lens or contacts on the lens that provide power and communication between the lens and the camera body. In either of these cases, you may need to have it checked out professionally.

Good luck!

My HVR-V1U has a focus problem. In manual focus mode, when I zoomed in and focus and then zoom out, it is not in focus anymore. But if I leave the camera in auto-focus it is fine. I don't see a way...


That's the backfocus problem. Take your camera to a Sony service.
If the lenses are ok, they will do an adjustment. If the lenses are defective, they will
replace the lenses, but that costs much.

One of the lenses don't focus


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 stored standing on the eyepieces. The only cure is a replacement yoke, but the repair is rarely cost-effective unless the binos are really expensive and top-quality models. Yours probably do fall into that range, so contact an optical repair specialist for an estimate.

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.

We had a fire and my binos got smoked inside. I took apart the front and cleaned the prisms in front and lenses. How do I access the back prisms? How do i get the cover off the prisms at back of binos.


most prisms have coating on their air to glass surfaces. Chances are you have already degraded their original quality, even with the smoke gone. From past exp. you will be better of getting another bino...

Dropped new Celestron Skymaster 15x70 binoculars. Nothing appears broken, but now have two images. Can I repair this. and how? Thanks. Dan


Don't "unscrew" the binoculars. there are no user servicable parts inside. the collimnation adj screws are beneath the rubber boot just under where your index fingers rest when looking through the bino's. use a jewelers screwdriver to tease the boot up and stick a small nut or something in. then put the binos on a stable surface and play with the screws a bit while watching the images. you can get them pretty close this way.

Unscrewing lenses


Hello toccata, It sounds like your lens mount is cross-threaded. Have you gotten a lens off and looked closely at your camera lens threads. Are they crunched together. You may need to get your cameras lens mount replaced and check all your lenses and see if the threads aren't cross threaded. If a lens has bad threads, don't use it anymore.

Focus is completely out of whack


i'd probably say try a repair place. It's a problem with retractable lenses.. better quality, but prone to problems.
