Question about Vivitar MAGNACAM Binocular
The East German Notarems were a little fragile when compared to their West German counterparts. They didn't require too much of a knock to get them out of alignment. To collimate them you need a device called a collimator and its not something you do at home. The Notarem is not an easy unit to take apart. It has a unique locking dioptre ring that is mated with the central focus.
They are definately worth fixing. Not cheap but then again they are not a cheap binocular. You should consult an optical shop in the country where you live. They may know of someone who can fix this. If you are in the UK or don't mind sending the binoculars for repair Kay Optical in the UK has an enviable reputation for repairing old binoculars.
