You will need to focus in on the slide. There should be 2 1" diameter knobs on either side of the stand, and just to the rear. Those knobs control the height of the stage (where you slide sits). Slowly raise or lower while looking into the eyepiece. At some point something should be see, if the microscope is working properly.

Sometimes it is easiest to start with the lowest magnification. On the outside of the objective (little lenses hanging down that can be rotated) there should be some numbers written on them (usually 4, 10, 40). Those numbers reference your magnification. If you multiply that number by the eyepiece (10) magnification, you will get your total magnification, so start out with your 4x. It will give you the largest field of view, so it is great for finding whatever it is that you are looking for on your slide. It is also the easiest one to get focused. The higher you go in magnification, the smaller the field of view, thereby the more difficult it is focus in on your sample.

Bosch classixx 1200 express lights flashing


Bosch 1200 classixx express washing machine. Upon switching on my machine, a little while later all of the lights on the control panel were flashing except the Start button. I tried to push the buttons but there was not the usual sound made upon depression of any of the buttons. They continued to flash. I switched the power off and cleaned out the pipes at the front of the machine to eliminate any obvious problems. Please help

Microscope will not focus on high power cloudy


Since there's only a very small amount of light reaching the lens system of microscopes when on high powers, A special technique (called >>>oil immersion
Not using this technique must be the cause of the problem you are experiencing.
eHow will guide you through the exact procedure of using the oil immersion technique: http://www.ehow.com/how_8431358_focus-high-power-objective-microscope.html

Where can I buy the light bulb for a 1200 zoom microscope in the state of Indiana


Microscope bulbs can be hard to find at a local hardware or electrical store in you area. The best, and cheapest solution is to go to http://www/bulbtronics.com. You will need to know the specification of the bulb in you are to buy online, but if not, their customer service folks are very good at helping you determine what those specifications are, and what bulb you will need to purchase.

I picked up a Bushnell 1200 power microscope at a thrift store without a manual. when I look through the eye piece all ia see is light, nothing that is on the slide. What is the missing link? thanks

I have inherited a Nikon 83988 microscope with a transformer. I know nothing about this; I have no manual. I think there may be bits missing (there is no lamp for example). When I plug in the...


I think the number you gave is the microscope serial number, to hope to get help you need to find the model number so people can help. At least post a picture. In general the microscope needs a light source to be bright enough to use. The transformer is meant to provide power to the light. If you use the microscope with a light shining through the object held by a glass slide then the light is below the stage which holds the object. Sometimes on simpler microscopes they have a mirror below the stage and you shine a bright light beam into the mirror and must adjust the angle to reflect the light through the slide. In more complex systems the light is built into the microscope. For opaque objects you must shine the light from above onto the object. If you can't find the official Nikon light source to connect to the transformer, you may be able to get non Nikon light sources. For my stereo microscope for example, I use a LED ring-light I bought on ebay for ~$25. This lights the objects from above and fits around the microscope tube just above the stage.
