I have the ATN Night Shadow Gen 1 with the doubler and long range illuminator. After only several uses I can no longer get any distance out of it. I can see objects close up (20 yards) but everything...


Hello, Welcome to ATN Russian image intensifier tube. That right Russian. There is a good possiblity that Russian manufactured the hole binocular with ATN name and logo on it. Typically, this image tube are made to their standards and not to USA standards. There are a lot of countries in this world that manufacture night vision devises and there parts. I know that ATN didn't pay what you paid for this nice looking....yes, that what I said "nice looking" But that about all it is... You can send it back to ATN for repairs but it will new Russian parts to replace old Russian parts.

Now, check IR illuminate to see if it is working. This 1st gen Russian image tube are good up to 80-100 yards. I wish you all the luck. GB...stewbison

I have an ATN MK238 that will power up, like the power LED will come on, but the screen will not power up when you look into the reticle. I checked the tube by unscrewing the front lens and it is a uniform...


Hello, it has a none functioning image intensifier tube, or shorted ccfl. All the electronic components are manufactured in Russia. Does this let you know what wrong with you ATN MK238 scope now...it's cheap. I don't fix these ATN MK-258 anymore, it to hard to find parts. ATN is no help, they won't sell parts. It will have to be sent to ATN for repairs at approx. $200+ for repairs. I do have a couple of Russian image intensifier tubes, that work. The last MK238 I repaired, I had to build a ccfl (cold cathode flourscent Lamp) inverter, replace the coil and voltage multiplier, and fit in a confine space with insulation from electric arcing.

Here is infor for you. The ccfl can be purchased. They are companys that will make you a voltage multipliers. So, here is information: voltage to ccfl (6 volts) then the voltage goes in the inverter
to convert it switching DC voltage (5.5 volts). Then the coil (transformer) step it ot about 930 voltage to the voltage multiplier (which has four stages---the first stage with double the voltage to 1860 volt to the second stage which double it, then third stage which double it, then finally to fourth stage which doubles the third stage to about 15KV (hight voltage here, it will bit ya here, but no current--amps.) this will the cathode on iit, then light up the tube 18mm film that is coated--it will turn green)

Now, this the simplies way of tube operation, it more complex than that. The power supply for this Russian image inten. tube is sealed in dielectric jell, and the voltage multiplier is sealed in epoxy with the tube are none repairable.

There are quit a few other NV companies, that use Russian tubes and electronic. They cheap but functional. The bottom line here is the profit. Don't get me wrong here. There a few Russian compies that make some very good gen 2 tubes. If you can replace the tube will gen 2 tubes and powere supply. I hope this helps, Richard.

Hello, is the IR illuninator tube seperate from the ATN Aries rifle scope? If it is, then check the battery, ok. If the battery is ok, then check the polarity of the IR lumin. Make sure the battery is installed properly.

Lens diagram aries 238


Hi, the objective lens on this ATN MK238. Now these lenses are Russian Optics and they manufacture very good to excellent optics. Take the lens to a camera shop, if they can fix it, then they will know who will. If you send it to ATN they just throw away your lens and replace it with a new lens. If you are going to replace the lens then up grade to 90mm to 100mm lens, OK. stewbsion

There is not picture its just vioce


Battery OK, IR light up, no green image on the intensifier image tube, correct! What type of voices are you hearing? Give ATN Aries 390 two Zolof and wait two day, just kidding!!! The noise is a crackling, high freqencey hum, popping, etc. Also remove the eye lens, it screw off, then remove the scope to someplace where it semi dark. Turn it on and observe the 18mm white plate and see if it turn green---no green---no look see---no image intensifier tube, it dead that is the mage tube. stewbison.

I need to replace a lost illuminator


I guess you might be referring to ATN M04-1 monocular. What is it that is really lost here. The illuminator housing is fixed in the case. Then you much have lost the adjustable view cover. This cover is only held in place with sloted threaded plug and about 1/8 in diament. Call ATN and ask them if the have an extra lens cover for the IR indicator -- adjustable cover. stewbison

I purchased a mk258 direct from atn, as live in the uk i hope it would be ok and with international company and warranty. after 2nd use the intensifier tube packed up, on advice from sales dpt i returned...


dear fixya team , thankyou for your mail, as this is a one off problem and will not purchase any other products from the usa, i see no point in joining here but just thought you might be able to help. as yet there is still no reply from atn sales dpt with reference to a refund or even to confirm they recieved unit in post. you would have thought a big usa company like atn would have better customer service. i took time to view many night rifle scopes and chose a mk258 looking at reviews and the company warranty. i think now was a bad mistake and will send all details to a uk air gun magazine to warn other uk airgunners about buying direct from this company and buy in uk. regards gordon harman
