How do I fix my Nikon D5200 diopter?

No matter how much I try to adjust the diopter for my camera, the viewfinder will not focus. However, the pictures the camera takes are crisp. I would rather not go to a repair shop, so is there a way I can fix this myself?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have the same problem with the same camera, but the problem is not the camera, its my eyes. According to he owners manual the diopter range is only +/- 1.7, I went to a camera with an EVF, Lumix G5 where the diopter range is +/- 4.0; now I can see when the subject is in focus.
