Big Problems with New Microscope
What's going on everybody? Well I finally received my new USB Microscope today and after messing around with it for about thirty minutes, I can not get this thing to focus on ANYTHING. I have been trying to look at a PIC18 surface mount chip and there is really only one magnification level that works at all, which according to the focus wheel is about 20x. At that level the part looks decent. But if I move it beyond that point whatsoever, you can't even tell what you are looking at. I have tried adjusting the LED brightness, how far away from the board the actual microscope is, and I am having absolutely no luck at all. If anyone could provide me with any help at all, I would greatly appreciate it. I am getting an image quality that is absolutely nothing like what it shows on the website. I don't know if I am missing anything, but I have read the manual quite thoroughly and it seems like I am doing everything right. I don't know if I received a faulty microscope or what, but I can only see what I am looking at, at a single magnification level, anything above or below that, and you can not see what you are looking at. Please help me out with this issue, I have a project that is due Wednesday and I have to take different magnification snapshots with this microscope, and if I can not get this thing to work I am in some serious trouble!!
