Few questions, NV devises have IR luminator, it is infrared light that inhance the ability of the image intensifier tube? There is just alot of factors that effect the lumenation of the NV devise. Do you have a green glow in the NV monocular? Have you installed new batteries? Have you taken it a part and look inside? Just install new battery and make sure that the polority is correct
I will give you a little secret here, when the Russian put these NV devises together. They have atleast 50 Russian Orthodox Priest praying that these devises will work. Once you open these NV devises you let out the great polisky juices. it finished once this happen. Did you let the polisky juice out? stewbison
These NV monoculars and this Guardian is made by ATN. Normally what happen is the image intensifier tube has gone back to Red Star country. In other words, it gone! The reason why the IR light up is it on a different circuit and has nothing to do with the internal electronic of this NV monocular.
All this IR light does is to provide invisiable light to inhance the image on image tube on very dark/clouded nights. Someone else using and NV devise can see IR light on your monocular and vise versa to you, you can see its IR light. stewbison
Most of the LED's colors are Green on/off switch, Red for IR light. When you take a look see in the eye piece what do you see, white, white on white, green 18mm image, or just plan nothing. stewbison. It could be number of things, battery OK, just because it lights the LED doesn't mean it has the power to iignite the image tube----try a new batter---If it's not this, there could a number of things that have stop operating.; such as, image intensifier tube, ccfl inverter, voltage multiplier, toloidal coil, control panel. Some of the NV devisies are micropressor control. stewbison
Hello, have you or someone else pointed this night vision devise at bright lights, street lights, head lights. If so, maybe the damage has/hasn't alread been done. STOP. This PVS-7 goggles with ITT image tube with generation 2 or 2+ or possibly generation 3 tube. The devise is an American made unit, and the best in the world. Nobody can compete with the USA on NV. They sat the standards on Night Vision.
Have you replace the 6 volt battery? Get the goggle in a darken room then turn the switch on. see if the 25mm plate will turn green and stay on. But first replace that battery. Therefore, if this test works, then never and I mean never shine NV devises into bright lights, it will destroy them every time.
PS. send me another message and let see what happen. stewbison
Hello, is the IR glowing red, don't look into the IR lens. Just place your hand in front of it and see the is a red glare on your had. If there is a red glare then IR is work. Another thing when you taking a look see through the Night owl NV monocular there should be a green glow from the image intensifier tube, if not, then the NV monucular isn't working properly. stewbison
Hello, I don't understand. Yes there are a few wiring connections inside this NV200 monocular. Kent, I will need to know what the problem with your NV monocular before I can properly diagnosis your NV problems. There just to many things that can happen to these NV devises. stewbison
Hi, Quit a few of these NV monoculars don't have auto shut offs. So the switch
on you NV unit is a momentary switch--that is as long as you push on the switch
the unit will stay on. Once released the on/off switch, image will start fading
because the capacitors are discharging there current to a point where image in
the tube has clasped. stewbison
Hey, you got you self a Russian NV monocular. There should be two switches. One
switch is to turn on/off the unit. The second switch is used to turn on the IR
illuminate--which means infrared red light. To improve the night capabilities of
the NV monocular.
Ther are two LED's one green for on/off switch and one LED that is red for the IR illuminator.
When the NV monocular isn't been used, take the batteries out. The worst
NO-NO's is looking through monocular during the daylight hours. The do have
metal front lens cover with a small hole in the center for a few minutes of
viewing during the day. Remember---Use Only During the Night---Do look at bright
lights, don't let the kids play with it and make dam sure that Grandfather
doesn't get his hand on it. He will be doing long range peeping at the neighbors
or the lady that leaves here blinds open during the. Kid-No, Grandfathers-N0,
Fathers-that up to them. If pop going some night look see. I'll make a bit his
survival ratio has raised demise by 70%. stewbison
Hello, this Night Owl monocular will have two light (LED's), one green for on/off, and other red LED for IR illuminator. So, does the green light come on? Also, if still does work, then send it to me. I some parts to fix other NV devise and 95% of them are manufactured in Russia including yours. I wish you all the luck. GB...stewbison
Check the HV to the tube and see if you can see any discolouration or spots on the tube - they often indicate tube failure. Many binoculars use the one power supply for both tubes as the current demand is very low. Often, one tube operation indicates tube failure, but a wire or connection could be at fault.
