My binoculars were dropped and one of the lenses seems to be dislodged. Can this be repaired? If so where is your closest service center to Waldwick, NJ 07463? Thank you, Bob Armistead


Hi Bob,

You'll need to call Nikon and likely send your binoculars to their repair facility in Torrence, CA.
Nikon's phone number is 1-800-645-6687. This type of repair should be covered under their no-fault repair/replacement policy.

I have a Nikon Travelite IV binocular, 8x23 6.3" #400841. I am getting double images now, what can be done? A friend had the same problem, said you replaced them. Please help, thank you. Dave...


They are out of collimation, probably because one of the prisms has shifted due to a knock.

FixYa did not replace your friend's binoculars- this site just gives advice and has no connection with manufacturers or retailers. You should contact the manufacturer or perhaps the place you bought them.

My nikon 10x50 action binoculars have developed the problem of the left and right lenses not viewing the same image. the left side view is much lower than the right. i don't know if the prism was knocked...


Common problem with binoculars after a knock. One of the prisms has shifted, putting them out of collimation (alignment). If they are very high quality or collectible they might be worth fixing. It is likely to be expensive. I have done a few pair myself, but only when it was uneconomic to have it done professionally (I have ruined a few too).

I see a double image through my Nikon Travelite 12x24s


Hello Scott

While I am mostly a camera expert , I have seen the problem that you are describing. Inside the camera there is a little reflector which is used to invert the picture and focus it to the viewing eyes.

These reflectors are stuck to the camera casing using epoxy and the problem is that with time the epoxy becomes brittle and cracks. When it is cracked , the lens will move out of it's fixed posistion but the epoxy does not always break loose fully which is why you do not hear any rattle.

You could attempt to open it up and glue the lens back into posistion using some new epoxy , but you could possibly have some problems with the screws of they are not standard.

In this case ask a jeweler to repiar the binocular for you as this should not cost much to repiar...no more than $15.

Kind Regards

Dropped unit. Knocked the prisims loose. All


It's quite easy to dismantle and inspect, look for tiny retainer screws around eyepiece and/or unscrew lens shrouds. Normally the prisms shouldn't come loose in average to good quality viewers, they'd be held in by some sort of retainer, eg- flexed, spring tempered metal, where you screw in one side and then have to flex (bend) the metal to screw in other side over the back of the prism. It sounds like yours may use an adhesive retainer, if so clean of old residue and use fresh silicone, or may have broken the clip and or screws. But it may just have popped out, in which case reattach it. Make sure the prisms are seated properly, 1 hardly visible flake of glue or dirt under the prism will offset vision noticeably. I would say you may be lucky and find an honest repairer for about $45.00 if prisms aren't damaged.

Binoculers do not appear to be focussing properly.


Binox have a prism in each barrel to invert the image. When dropped or banged around the prisms may move in their mounts creating the problem you present. I have opened binox and reset the prism effecting a correction, but IF you unit is nitrogen filled you will be losing that anti-fogging benefit. If you choose to open your pair, check for movement in each prism, neither should be loose. Once you find the original proper placement, a drop of crazy glue does wonders - just a drop on one edge.

Nikon travelite binoculars are misalligned. Can I fix them? Right side image is higher than left side.


They can be fixed but not at home. You need a collimator to properly align the optical paths. If under warranty send them back. If not get a quote first repairs are expensive and you may be better off with a new one.

I fell and now the two eye pieces are out of alignment.


This a problem with the prisms in the main body of the binoculars. It would seem that one or more have moved (there are four). Realigning is a difficult job but not impossible. Depending on the design, it should be possible to gain access to two of them, and hopefully you will see which one has moved. When aligned at factory, the prisms are usually held in place with a flat or “leaf” spring, and spots of paint/glue. This may give you a clue when you examine the prisms, and compare both sides.
To gain access to the bottom two prisms, try unscrewing the objective lens tube (the conical bit) from the main body, You may also need to remove one or two tiny screws that hold the protector plate in place. Do both sides at the same time so you can compare. With any luck, you might be able to re-seat the jarred prism to its original place. The top two prisms are harder to get to requiring the dissasembly of the focus mechanism, but if you go carefuly, you may get lucky, after all you have nothing to loose. Remember that binocular alignment does not need to be perfect, if it’s pretty close, the brain will compensate for any minor inaccuracies.
Please contact for further information
Kind Regards….Dave

You have to open each side ( nikon travelite covers just unclip ) to get to the 4 prisms. Once opened to clean make sure you do not break the glue that holds down the prisms ( move the prisms in their seats and your alignment is out ). Clean with window cleaner and isopropanol to finish.
