Get a technican to give it the once over - the wires may have been cut because the equipment is unsafe to use. If not, they should be able to fix the damage as the circuits are quite simple.

Night owl optics night vision monocular model # nocx5 explorer pro . thin wire inside battery compartment has been severed. anyone know where i can get this repaired? unit worked fine b4 this happened....

Yes, at Night Owl Optics in El Paso, Texas. This is not a mandatory option. You can do it you self. You can see the white wire in a slot just under the aluminum thread ring for the battery cap.

Is this where the wire is broken at?

Need a small dental pick with 90 degree bend on the end/you can make one, also some tweezers or small needle nose pliers. Use the hook to remove the aluminum ring that is press into the plastic case.

Once, the ring is removed, reach in the Small slot with the tweezers and grab the wire. Now, gentle and I mean gently pull on that white wire until you enough wire to strip the teflon coating off.

Now, use the pick to cut a little small **** in side where the battery cap ring goes. Now, put a very minute drip of glue in the wire ****. Push the wire into the glue **** with the pick. Now, you can install the aluminum battery cap ring. Gently push it down and let the glue dry. Your done...awesome, no.


walk gently upon this earth, and she will good to you.... NO means Yes here!

Just purchased a new 3V CR123 battery for the prowler. The lights are working whenever i click ON or IR, however when looking through the lens nothing is visible. It's just all black. I removed the...

Jello, you meam that IR isn't emitting red light? If the IR isn't working then it has a bad IR luminator, broken wire, bad switch. Now the on/off switch get it power from battery to IR, it just one simple circuit. Also don't look at the IR light if it's on. Also don't point or look at bright lights with this NV devices, it will destroy the image intensifier tube. stewbison

How to reset

Hello, Just remove the batteries. Also the batteries should be alkaline batteries. Not lithium, Ni-Cd, Mercury etc. Now, I'm giving you a little trick that I learn over many years work with electronics. Take piece of wire and make sure the batteries are remove. Take piece of tape and tape one end of the wire to the positive side (+), all it will be is little shinny plate. Now take the other end of the wire and tape it to the shinny spring this the negative side(-). Rember, there are two "AA" or "AAA" batteries.

The wire goes from + of 1st battery end in the battery compartment to negative side (-) of the second battery spring (-). Rember!! NO BATTERIES, while you are doing this operation. Let the wire stay on the battery terminal in the battery compartment for 5 minutes or so. What is does if the electrolytic capacitor is holding and want drop the current which switch is turn off, it will now.

Reinstall the correct batteries then turn on your ITT Mariner 160 monocular. GB...stewbison

Power light comes on for a second then powers back down.

Hello, it sound like an internal short. When you power your ATN Binocular does the image tubes Diems? Because if it does, there could be a short on the printed circuit board. The only thing I can recommend is to remove the back cover and look for wires that could be grounded the case. But remember there are that ground to the case if it is aluminum. Some place there a bare wire touching ground. Take a look it couldn't hurt but be careful with those wires and if the break off make sure you know where the go to and from. Draw a diagram were wire go to on the circuit board. GB...stewbison

Name of scope . Yukon . Problem : I tried to replace a battery in the dark. Removed the wrong part by relative force . Scope damaged. Two tubes on the front of the scope one is the battery tube and th

I would strip the wires as carefully as I could and get them back together, get the 2 AA batteries back in there, and see what happens. Then go about making a permanent splice in the wires and getting the lens to stay on there, or ship it back to Russia for repairs. Or find somebody to do it. I'm sure it can be done. Hope this helps.
