Question about Inova MICROLIGHT

1 Answer

Light worked fine for a while, then became intermittent

I bought a Nite Ize LED wand which comes with the chip controled (squeeze for different modes and switch on and off) Inova Microlight. (Blue in my case) I use it while hiking and camping. I tested it out at home before the last trip out and it seemed to work fine. When I got out into the woods, and tried to turn it on, it would only stay on while I was squeezing it, and then only very dimmly. I tried replacing the batteries, but it had no effect. Any suggestions?

Why wont my Night leopard light up the screen after no use for 1 year? The battery was replaced, the IR led comes on but no light on the screen. Help

Hello, it could be a number of problems with your Night Leopard Monocular. Broken wire, bad switch, cold solder joint, faulty electronic components, image intensifier tube has gone south faster than a Ethiopian chicken. Another problem here is were it was manufactured and there quality control procedures.... I would say that Russia manufacture mostly junk in their NV devises. But they also manufacture some night vision components that really good. Nothing to the quality of the US tho.

Since, I have work on a few of these Russian NV devises. 90% of the problem will the image intensifier tube. They might work for six months or six years. There quality control isn't the best in the work; of course, the companies in the USA that has there name and logo on them they tell a different story. GB....stewbison

I think I answer you question--when?? Take the good CCTV camera and hook it up to monitor. Then hook up the CCTV camera and turn it on. Point the working CCTV camera at the bad camera that is turn on. Now, look at the monitor which is working with your operational camera. Look at the bad camera while it on, and see how many IR LED's you can see on the bad CCTV, while it turn on. You should be able to the IR LED glowing red. If not, then there is a problem with bad CCTV IR LED's. Short wire, no power to the IR LED's. stewbison

Green and orange led ok but can not see anything

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

Yukon Ranger 5 x 42 night vision goggles just stopped working, I put in new batteries, but when I press the ON button the on light, which is red, just flashes maybe 10 times and then all goes black. ???

Hello, let do this. IR illuminator has a montary switch, that is when you push it comes on, and when you release it the IR goes off and it has a red LED to indicate the IR illuminator is being activated.

When you turn you binocular on there will be a green LED activated. This switch is DTSA---double throw sing activated. That is, one throw of the switch it turns on the binocular, the throw will turn off the binocular.

Also within the control panel there is timing circuit to keep the IR illumniator on for ten second the shuts off. Make sure you have the right switches etc. Let me know, then we can brain storm on this matter. stewbison

I need a I/R setup for these you have pr can you tell me where i can get one...thanks

Hello, contact Night Vision Optics they should be able to get you one. You can make your own by using an head light. Get an IR bulb, or change the lens to IR lens. If you want to high tech then get head light will IR LED's. If the white LED's are used don't use IR lens over this white LED's because of the light spectrum is different for the the LED's than incandescent light. They will have to be changed IR LED's..GB...stewbison
