SOURCE: cannot adjust " 3 -> 'infinity' "

As you probably know by now, you have in your hands a CHEAP russian 1st Gen. NV device and that whatever $$ you paid for it was $$ way too much. The russians make these things for the export (think USA) market from left over 1st Generation junk that did not work well even for THEM. The USA 1st Gen. is to them what our 3rd Gen. is to us.
There is no repair or service centers for this russian NV in the USA. This is a prime example of 'Buyer Beware'. If it looks too good to be true, it's probably junk. Save your $$ and buy American.
Remember that '1stGen(generation) is very OLD NV technology,(this what we used in Viet-Nam in the early'60's, it was like 'rocket science' then, but it was all we had) the picture will be very grainy and fuzzy and the picture will appear to be sorta floating about. Pointing it at a bright light can burn out the element. Yikes! There is NOTHING you can do to adjust this to make it look good. The 2nd Gen. is only a little better, just a little more expensive. The 3rdGen. is much better and you will have a pretty clear picture and happy results. When you see these TV shows where they are using NV, they most likely are using 3rdGen NV. You will spend much more $$ for these units. The 4thGen. NV is the latest and top dog but you will have to hock your car, your dog and give up eating for a long time to afford these units. Go to; www.nightvision4less.com/night_vision_scopes.htm and you will see all four types of NV USA made. I have nothing to do with nor am I associated with this company, I simply give it to you as a reference point in your quest for information about NV products. Good luck :)

SOURCE: Batteries

I think you will find that one 9 volt battery would not last any time at all. the 6 AAs have a big capacity and that's why they use them, a little 9v battery is intended for low power equipment.
I see it is supplied with a 12v AC adaptor, if you connect a 12V battery via the adaptor socket you may get a longer run time if its a rechargable battery even better.

Turns on but cannot see anything


Hello, there could be a number of problems but 90% of the problems with these Russian manufactured monoculars, binoculars, scopes is the the image intensifier tube. First they are cheaply made, they don't taken much abuse, and if any bright light such as, street lights, car lights, turn on the NV monoculars during the day light hours could and would total damage these Russian manufactured tubes.

I hate to tell you but there is a good possibility that the image intensifier tube is bad, sorry. Night Owl Optic and many other US companies use cheap Russian manufactured night vision devise to sell; of course, they make a huge profit on these NV devises.

There are a lot of countries in the world that manufacture NV monoculars and other NV devises. Some are good and most are just slap together.

If you want a good night vision monocular be prepared to pay top $$$ for them.
Made in the USA, Europe, England, and even in China.

List it on eBay as Night Vision Monocular and under condition: broken for parts.
I wish you luck. GB...stewbison

Didn't used 1 1/2yrears woudn't turn on


Hello, sorry that you moncular will not turn on. It seems that these Russian manufactured monocular, binoculars, scopes have really cheap intensifier tube in them. They just wake up then die. It's cost prohibitive to have it repaired because Night Owl will not sell parts for NV devises to any one. Look on eBay and they are quit of few of this NV monoculars for auction and also for parts. The image intensifier tube is 90% of the cost of any NV devises. GB...stewbison

I have put new batterys in my nv-100 still nothing happens,the illuminator lights up.


I sound like the Russian manufactured image intensifier tube has gone bad. This Kalinka Zenith Piezon Russian NV monocular was and is manufactured in Russia. Have tried to use piezo handle on the top of the monocular. This is suspose to eliminate the battery for operation by using you hand and finger to pull down on the handle many time to charge up some capacitor and diodes.. GB...stewbison

I bought a ft 700 and it has a cylender under the lens and it had came unglued and was flopping around as a result i would hit the power button and nothing the only thing that would come on is the ir light...


I don't unstand about the cylinder under the optical lens. Let me ask a few questions, OK.
first, what type of battery does the Famouse Trail 700 use? Where on the NV Monoculars is the battery compartment on the top or bottom or on the back side? General question, have you or anybody else been pointing or observing bright lights with monoculare while the NV monocular been on. If has been observing bright light during the night or day.... It has died and has going back to Red Star. Just send me more information, and don't tell me about the color wires. In these Russian manufactured NV devises they use teflon white wire, every now and then a light pink wire will show up. stewbison.... like American Bison Meat!

I need the instruction manual. Also, what is the top red light for? Just what does it do


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.

NO-NO-NO's

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

I have a Ariel FT 300 it will not turn on


Hello. It seems these Russian made monocular won't operate aftera while. It is a common ocurrance with these and others NV devises.

It probably the image intensifier tube that is bad. It would be cost prohibitive to have it repair by Famous Trail Optic. I am take a guess here. The cost would be about $100 + shipping to and from, and about $200 for a used Russian image intensifier tube. New tube will be approx. $400.

Try if you have their address and phone give them a call. They might give you a deal. Normally what happen they will tell you it is none repairable but they will give you a great deal on another Russian made monocular. I'm really sorry for you. GB you...stewbison

Hello, I fell the same way buddy. Sorry to here about your Night Vision monocular? But Tasco NV monocular is manufactured in Russia. It seem you got a few year out of your NV devise...7 years is very good. The biggest thing that goods bay is the Russian manufactured image intensifier tube. There are cheap. This is about 85% of the monocular problem and 90% of the cost. Two items that viewed as important with NV devises. The case, and the image intensifier tube. Now, if you have Russian optics above 50mm for the front lens then on could consider that the optics are another cost. Auction it off on eBay as "doesn't work, parts only" Sorry, and I wish you luck...GB...stewbison

I used my zenit NV last year and but it away and when I tried to turn back on this year, all I got was a flash like it was going to start but it went black, I but in new batteries but this did not work....


Hello, I really don't think it is the image intensifier tube that has bad. The good possiblity the piezo electric capacitor has shorted out. Have tried to charge the capacitors by hand cranking the handle on top of the Kalinka NV monocular. Try first, crank the level and get the cap charged up before turn on the switch. GB....stewbison

What kind of batteries do i use and where do the batteries go?


Hello David. David you night vision doesn't use any batteries that one installs. You have Kalinka Zenit NV monocular that is Russian manufactured but is sold by Night Vision Optics. Your night vision uses a piezo electric ignitor to charges the batteries and charge a couple capacitors.

The lever on top to the Zenit monocular is activated by squeezing the handle that is covered in a rubber type material. Just keep squeezing on the lever and in while things will start working. Best of Luck David. GB...stewbison
