I have inserted a new slide into the uScope. When I load and browse the slide, I cannot get the image to focus. The image is blurry and has no detail.
There are a number of reasons that the image doesn't come into focus:
If you still have difficulty getting the image in focus, please contact our support department for assistance.
The objective position adjustment is limited to avoid damage to the slide. The software will not let you lower the objective into the slide (for standard thickness slides and cover slips).
Low-power objectives (4x, 10x, 20x) never touch the slide—the objectives are too short, so there is no possibility of damaging the slide with then.
High-power objectives (40x and 60x) have a spring-loaded nosepiece. If the objective comes in contact with the slide or cover slip, the nosepiece compresses in an effort to avoid damage to the slide.
