You have maxed out on elevation adjustment. Even if the dial turns, nothing is happening.
 
It sounds as though something is out of alignment, either the scope rings, the receiver or the barrel.
 
Start at the beginning: Count how many clicks you have from full down to full up. Say 130 clicks. Same for your left and right.
 
Now click half those clicks. This should put your crosshairs approx in the middel of the scope.
 
Now mount the scope as before, then look through the barrel at a distant (30yds) small object. The crosshair and object should be close. Of course the rifle has to be clamped in something sturdy, such as a gunrest or vice with a rag etc.
 
If the two are way out, you have a problem

+1. Then lose the see-thru mounts and get something decent.

The problem is definitely not that the scope is mounted too high. A picture of the setup might be useful.

I am not a fan of these see through mounts either, I say get a decent set of scope mounts then post back what your results are.

I agree on getting rid of the see through mounts.With the proper mounts that allow natural head placement and correct eye relief you will be able to find a target quicker with the scope than you can line up iron sights anyway.To me scope position is number one.I will often choose one scope over another just because the tube length or eye relief allows better placement.

   Thanks for your replies iam learning alot from this forum
  I would like to keep my see-through mounts on if possible,i never had this trouble with the Tasco i had on before.
Does the Elite 3200 only have a small adjustment range.
