That sounds bad, but this section of Fix-ya is for Leica cameras. I don't know that we can be much help with their medical equipment. Good luck though.

Try to check the relays. There is what we call a protective thermostat and thermistor for the compressor. Maybe this is also busted. A starting thermistor usually gives way in todays compressors. You can see this in the connector of the compressor.

Double-check the electrical source (plug) you have it plugged into with another device.

Just because the bulb "looks good" does NOT mean it IS good, also. If the electrical source ("the plug") is "hot", then the likely culprit is the bulb. Next would be the electrical switch - "fiddle" with it a bit.

(work it like a toilet that is problematic: jiggle the handle. wiggle things a bit. yell at it. whack it a few times)

If that doesn't work, check your warranty to see if a repair is covered.

(don't "whack it" so hard the warranty is void!)

Depends on the microscope. Generally, with most simple microscopes that are used often, calibration (aligning of the prisms, objectives and eyepieces) shouldn't be required more than once every 5 years or so.

This issue could potentially be solved by a flatfield software correction of the camera that you are using. I would recommend visiting leica-microsystems.com and filling out a Contact Me request. Your local Leica specialist will then be in touch to help.

Turn it on and bring up the temperature. The pressure inside will increase as the temperature increases.
