    It is more economical to replace it. And for heavens sake don't buy another zoom, or another Tasco for that matter.

SOURCE: my bushnell 7x15 to 25 zoom do not show as one view or picture?

I'm assuming that you have set the dioptre correctly for your eyes.

Normally this is caused by a collimation error, caused when one (or both) of the prisms move, even by a small amount.

You are going to need to get this serviced/repaired as it is not a DIY problem. (unless of course you have a collimator lying around)

You can't.

Tasco optical products are very cheaply made items, usually bought direct from whichever factory already makes the same or a similar model and then Tasco have their badges and packaging added.

They are consumer grade models which are not designed with longevity or repairs in mind; they're worth little when new and almost without value as used items.

The only repairs which can be done are by Tasco themselves whilst their products are under warranty. Except for the most minor of repairs, a warranty claim will simply involve exchanging the faulty item for a new one as any labour expended in repairs will often cost Tasco more than the wholesale price of a new unit.

Your only fixes are to live with the missing eyecup; to visit a binocular repair shop (not exactly commonplace) and see if you can buy an eyecup which can be adapted by yourself to fit; or to replace yours with another pair. You'll usually find that there are plenty for free on your local FreeCycle or Freegle group but they'll often have the even worse fault of a broken eyepiece yoke. But the price is right so it doesn't really matter if you have to collect five or six pairs before getting a good pair...

With all due respect, 7x-15x35 are going to be optically atrocious, so replacing your current pair is not a bad idea.

Measure the diameter needed and then check bicycle inner tube diameters. Cut a short section, roll a quarter-inch inside-out, slip over the eyepiece, roll the other end inside-out to form a nice soft shoulder. Costs nearly nothing, works dandy.

Panasonic SD5 won't focus after being dropped. Have turned it off and on...removed battery etc. Got message to reset, have done that several times. It will record but only very blurry unrecognizable...


The zoom/lens opening mechanism runs on a series of cogs and gears. Usually made of plastic.

If you've dropped it, one of these cogs has probably slipped a tooth or two rendering the camera unusable.

The panasonic website support may off some advice, as would a retailer/repairer.

You could try yourself, its fiddly and loads of little bits and you'll be working without a manual.

If you do go for professional repair, get a quote and check out the cost of a replacement camera first, they're often un-economical to repair.

Double vision with the optics. Dropped and now the binocular has double vision.


The yoke which connects the eyepieces and keeps them aligned as the focus changes is damaged. If you can easily move one eyepiece back and forth with respect to the other then the yoke has broken, if not then it's bent, probably cracked and waiting to break.This is probably the most common fault on most binoculars, and it's usually uneconomic to repair.

If bent, the yoke *might* be able to be straightened, but it will be weakened and the alignment afterwards will rarely be spot-on. If broken, then the yoke must be replaced professionally but the repair often costs more than replacing the binoculars with new. The break cannot be simply glued: the contact area is too small to carry the loads it has to carry, and you also usually find that the yoke bent before breaking anyway so you then have all the same problems as you do with a bent yoke.

The fragile nature of the yoke is why binoculars must always be inserted into their case with the objective lenses facing down; this avoids shock loads on the delicate yoke assembly.

If you have a telescope and binocular repair specialist located conveniently to you then it may worth getting an estimate for repairs, but there are few these days with the skills to do so. Minolta no longer exist, so spare parts will be almost as scarce as rocking horse droppings. But if you're in the UK, then visit or phone Kay Optical for advice.

I hope that you've found my posting to be of use and in return ask only that you take a moment to rate my answer.

Zoom lens loose in tasco binoculars


Best to take this to a repair agent as there are inherent problems in trying to fix these by yourself. Main one being zoom registration between both sides of the binocular.

You cannot repair these scopes economically. If you just need a bolt or screw try a well stocked hardware store for a replacement.

TASCO will not replace parts.

Image appears double and slighly off when viewing


I was having a double vision problem with my Barska 10-30X50 zoom, 195FT/100YDS binoculars. One image was always higher than the other. This was tolerable at low zoom, but was further aggravated the more I zoomed in. I found that I could grasp both barrels and twist them in opposite directions (one side up, the other side down) and force the two images to merge--but that was a strain and an unpleasant viewing experience. As an experiment, while looking through the binoculars, I grasped the far end of the right barrel and twisted it on its axis. Nothing happened at first, but after a certain amount of resistance it began to rotate independently of the body. Lo and behold, this shifted the barrel's axis, and the image for that eye moved vertically! I turned it until the two images merged, and now I'm thrilled to say that the problem is solved! I don't have a clue if this would work on any other brand or model, but it's worth a try!

This is either shutter flexiboard problem ( shutter not opening and closing ) or is caused by zooming problem . In either case it is not economical to repair . You will be quoted +- $ 150 to have it sorted out.
