Could be you've lost your plastic fine focus gear. If so, it's a fairly easy fix. Wasn't this just recently discussed?

Fixed!

When i purchased the scope the gentleman informed me that he upgraded the gears to brass/metal. Verified it today.

I took apart the knob assembly and discovered the issue. The small focus gear came off probably due to the fact that i loosened the adjustment knob a bit to much.

Anyway all good now.

I repaired a burned out USB port on a cellphone today too! I'm on a roll.
