My 10X40 left lens is pushed to far into the barrel. Need help repositioning it.

My 20 year old 10X40's were dropped last night and the front lens came loose and was then pushed back in but too far. How can I reposition it to the proper place?

Sounds like they dropped hard. there should be lock rings floating around inside. if you can get the front objective ring off, the next lock ring,then the objective should come ouy and you can reset the inside lock ring.....any questions give me a call.........larry @reichinstruments.com

Samsung B 725II 7x25mm binoculars - left eye lens is damaged. Is it possible to get a replacement?


In short, no.

They only cost £32 brand new, and at that price there simply is no way that spares can be supplied and fitted for less than the cost of replacing them.

Your only hope is that they are still covered under the manufacturer's warranty or if you're in the UK you'll also have Sale of Goods Act protection, which states that goods must be of durable quality considering the price paid and the intended use. Although the Act gives you up to six years protection (five in Scotland) it will not in this instance offer you anything the Samsung one year warranty does not already provide as you simply can't expect a £32 pair of binoculars to last longer than a year. Many will last far longer, but anything over that first year is a bonus.

I hope that you have found my reply to be informative and that you are able to rate my answer.

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.

Very old Leitz I believe 10 X 30. Left out in rain last night. water inside. How do I get it out? I unscrewed lens on large end, but water appears to be in area where mirrors are.


Firstly there are no mirrors, they are prisms. They need to be completely disassembled and dried out AS SOON AS POSSIBLE by someone who KNOWS WHAT TO DO. Seeing your post was in December I hope that you have sourced a good repair agent in quick time.

Most of the older type scopes were rated at 4 clicks per inch at 100 meters.But to be sure you will have to test it. I generally do that at a 50 meter range and then it is 4 clicks per half inch.

I just got an old set of kalimar Model K7070 Binoculars ( 7X-15X35)from my father. They seem to have some type of water drop marks in the left lens. Are these worth trying to repair. I do not know what he...


The water drop marks you are seeing may be seperation of the lens coating. Most binoculars after WW2 have some form of anti-relective coating on the lens. This is applied to the glass surfaces in varying degress by various manufacturers. Its intended purpose is to reduce the amount of light that is reflected off the glass so that the image you see is brighter. Your windows at home that aren't covered actually don;t allow all of the light to come through!
What they all have in common is that the coating is applied onto the glass. Over time like anything that is stuck on or painted it can begin to peel off.
You could try asking a repair place if they caqn replace the lens but most likely they would need to change both so that they have the same coating. The binoculars are worth more for sentimental value than the cost of repair as a similar replacement set would cost as much. Zoom binoculars are not known for their optical quality. Often this 'watermark' effect doesn not interfere with the view. If your sentiments say fix them regardless do so. If not hold onto them as a keep sake.

Production date for the following Zeiss binocular


There are no recorded serial numbers for Zeiss binoculars made in West Germany or those made by Zeiss after the fall of the berlin wall. The newer numbers have been a mystery to collectors and so far no one has attempted to publish a list. I have newer models with lower serial numbers than older models in my collection.

Binocular repair


Yes they can be but need to be completely taken apart and cleaned. The salt will corrode any metal parts such as screws etc. The water may have left a coating on the internal glass services. Any impurities in the water may cause fungus to grow. Professionally done this will cost a tidy sum so a quote would be best. The warranty wouldn't cover water immersion if they are not meant to be waterproof. You could ask but Minolta no longer make binoculars and have forwarded on their servicing here is the web address
http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/contact/binoculars/

You may find that for the cost of repair you can purchase a replacement set. Minolta binoculars are heavily discounted now. For sentimental reasons I have paid more than a binocular is worth to have it repaired.

If you are going to buy a new set and still want to try at home....BE ADVISED this may RUIN the alignment and you should ONLY DO IT if you are going to replace them and DO NOT CARE if they end up in the rubbish bin. THIS IS A LAST RESORT THROW AWAY FIX.

Try and unscrew the objective barrels, the ones with the large lens. If they come off you should have access to the inside. If they don't unscrew easily stop. You will damage them. Flush them out with clean water and let them dry naturally. Avoid letting them dry where dust can enter the inside. This may clear the salt from inside them, Depends on how long since they were dropped into the water. The salt may have caused damage to the glass coatings. When dry, screw the barrels back on. You may end up with a double image. This may be able to be corrected by loosening or tightening the barrels. THIS IS A HACK FIX AND YOU SHOULD ONLY DO IT IF THE COST TO REPAIR IS TOO EXPENSIVE AND YOU ARE GOING TO REPLACE THEM.
