Leica Televid APO 77 Focussing broken: repair? (1 Viewer)


New member

My 19 year old Televid 77 no longer focuses. It has been getting stiffer over time, and now no longer appears to do anything. I called Leica in the Australia, and got the run around. Apparently I have to send it to Germany to access it. Only then will I know what it might cost to fix.

Was wondering if anyone else has had this issue resolved?

I also spend time in the UK. Does anyone know of any optical repairers in the K that could fix this issue? Or even if I could do the job myself

Try contacting Gary Hawkins <[email protected]>. He used to work for Leica, but contracts out to Zeiss, although he now has an independent company East Coast Binocular Repairs. He recently repairs the focussing on our Leica scope at a very reasonable cost

Hi Bert,
Have you been able to manage the repair (or to have a cost information for repair?). I guess it is the belt inside which is broken.
Best regards
