ITT Mariner 160 - How to open the case...

How do I open the case of my 160? I removed the five holding screws but the two halves of the case would not separate. I was concerned about using too much pressure for fear of breaking something. I need to re-seat one of the AAA battery contacts. Help and advice is needed. Fred1

Will not power on

Hello, these ITT Night Mariner 160 monocular are almost impossible to work on. To make them water proof every joint, hole, cap are epoxyed on. Check the internet and look for companies that manufacture materials that will desolve epoxy cement and even better stuff is that it makes the epoxy really soft for it can be removed. Sorry dude I couldn't be more help. 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
