Question about Bausch and Lomb Optics

1 Answer

I bought a used, fixed stage microscope to try and fix it. I have cleaned out the gunk from the ball bearings for the course focus but can't get the tube to raise and lower. Any resources you could link me to, if you can't identify the problem from such a vague description, would be helpful as well.

Why does the mechanical stage for my microscope keep falling to the bottom-most position?


Maybe there is some wear at the thread where the stage fits, causing that the stage cannot hold.

The stage is not moving when the focussing Knobs are moved. The stage moves freely vertically. It's not attached, I'm sure it needs to be re aligned and a screw need tightening, but which screws?


Hi Faye , we will probably need more info

Does the stage move freely on its own without the course focus knobs

Can you move the stage up and down with either of the course focus knobs

Instrument details / picture would help .

My microscope won't focus, i tried everything...i don't know what is wrong with it...it's brand new.. it worked a couple times but now it just stopped.. i dont know what brand it is...all it says is...


If your stage is still in its correct orientation then make sure your objective lenses are screwed in tight as well as the eye piece being secured correctly. Try using different objectives (don't go too high or you may damage your lenses if you ram it into your specimen) and using the fine and course focus. If the you still cant focus using different objectives it's quite possible that your mirrors or lenses inside the microscope have been knocked loose. I would then recommend only having it repaired by a certified microscope technician. If it is still under warranty take it back to the store of purchase or send it back to the manufacturer.

My microscope drfits out of focus, how can I fix this?


The problem is that the stage is heavy and the adjustment screws are loose. You need to tighten the coarse adjustment knob screws in order to create more friction so that the stage stays put. That, or don't adjust anything and keep holding on to the coarse adjustment while you're using it.

Stage slowly falls causing unfocus


Try holding the Right knob so it does not move, whilst firmly moving the Left knob towards you (clockwise), this is the adjusting method used on Zeiss Jena 1960's High End microscopes, e.g Eduaval & Ergaval.

Focuser broken


Not really a solution, but anything is better than a posting that get's NO response. It sounds like the rack and pinion drive has collapsed. If you're good with your hands and have a knack for things mechanical maybe you can dissassemble the stage mounting and see how it's meant to work. If something has come loose rather than broken maybe you can fix it. If teeth have stripped from the drive gear - you may be unable to effect a repair. I guess trying to fix it is better than doing nothing. Have a good 2008
