We forwarded your question to LOMO and this is their response. Hope it helps.
OI-10 is a very old LOMO condenser, I am not familiar with it.
Well, first of all try obvious:
Try to center the condenser
Try to center the light source
Make sure the condenser top optical element is oiled properly
If it does not help, there is a possibility that it is nit designed to work with this light source…
