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.

Blurry binoculars


Unfortunately, the reason for the blurryness is that the binoculars will not focus. Either the lenses have become dislodged, or something is obstructing the full motion of the eyepiece lenses.

I tried to fix a pair of binoculars that had the same problem and finally gave up.

You will probably have to get them professionally repaired. Be sure to get an estimate first, though, because the repair cost may be more than the binoculars are worth, depending on how much you paid.

Wish I had better news!

Good luck!

Dropped my Zeiss compacts from tree stand. Now they are just not right. Any reputable repair centers to send them to? Just can't seem to get clear focus, alignment.


You'll want to send them to Zeiss for service, as they will be the only source for needed parts and special tooling to get the job done right.
Give them a call at 1-800-441-3005.

I dropped my Nikon Action Lookout III binoculars, ...


The same happened to my Mizar 10X25 I tried things like moving the front lenses but then I discovered that most probably the binoculars fell on one of the four corners, this caused the tubes' direction to be twisted. It could be that the left is pointing slightly down or the right is pointing slightly up, which is essentially the same, and which is what happened to mine. You can discover this miss-alignment by watching using both eyes and then close and open one of them the phantom image will appear and disappear. What you have to do is apply a force with your hands twisting the binoculars one tube up and the other down and hold where you can see clear, I just discovered this and it works, I think I should be able to re-align them again, but I haven't faund how to do so. If you find a different solution please let me know here: gregsoli@yahoo.com

Double image occured after the omega 40 X 70 binoculars were dropped


There are a series of lenses and prisms inside the binoculars. When the unit was dropped one of more of those elements have been dislodged and that is what is causing the double image. You can check with the retailer to see if there is a repair center in your area. The way these units are put together they are difficult to take apart, repair, and put back together. Depending on the cost of the unit you might be better off replacing them. Check with the retailer to see what they say.

I bought these for my husband. In trying them


Difficult to answer specifically without knowing the model. But binoculars are designed to view objects in the distance. They all have a limit as to how close they will focus based on the magnification and design. Objective lenses that are far apart such as on a porro prism binocular will not focus very close. The nature of the design of having the objectives further apart than the eyepieces doesn't allow it. When trying to focus too close the image will appear blurred and double. That is the nature of the design. 9 feet or 3 metres is considered quite close to focus a binocular and is usually for a model designed to do this such as a roof prism where the objective lens and the eye lenses are inline. A specialty binocular such as the Pentax Papilo will close focus to 50 centimeters. It has been designed so that the objective (large lenses) lenses converge.

Take into account when focusing that binoculars are also designed to compensate for differences in each eye. One of the eyepieces either right or left will adjust seperately. For binoculars with a center focus ring. First focus using the center ring with one eye covered. The eye that should be covered is the one that doesn't have the adjusting eyepiece. When the image is clear close the eye you have just used and leave the center focus alone. Focusing on the same spot look through the eyepiece that adjusts and turn the eyepiece ring until the image is clear. Now all you have to do is focus using the center ring only as the binoculars are adjusted for each eye.

Some binoculars do not have a center focus and each eye will adjust seperately.

BLURRY WHEN YOU LOOK THROUGH THEM


The binoculars are out of collimation (alignment). It is a problem that requires a repair center. In order to properly adjust them they need to be taken apart and aligned using a collimator. Not something one does at home. If they are under warranty send them back. If not a proper repair will cost more than a replacement.

Out of focus


Assuming you are focussing correctly. When binoculars are out of collimation the most usual effect is double vision as the optical axis do not line up. The only thing you can do is to take them to a binocular repairer. The problem is the cost. Proper repair need the use of a device known as a collimator and it is a laborious task to do it properly. Your binoculars do not carry a high monetary value and a proper repair will cost more than a new binocular of similar specs. Porro prism binoculars mostly have the objective lenses set further apart than the eyepieces. This holds true except for reverse porro prisms which are the other way round. Roof prisms have both the front and rear lenses inline.
Make sure when you focus that the first eye you use to focus with is the one where the eyepiece does not have its own focus ring (dioptre). The dioptre adjustment is on either the left or the right depending on the brand. That eyepiece should be left alone until you have focused using the center ring. Then leave the center ring alone and focus the eyepiece that has the adjustment ring.
