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

Put in battery and light comes on but nothing happens, i have a aries mk 238


Jeepers! I have work on these ATN MK238 before. All internal electronic are made in Russia. There are two major problem with them. Image intensifier tube goes lights out, the ccfl inver, coil and voltage multiplier are seal in dielectric jell and epoxy. can't work of them. I can work on them, but I am not. Who ever work on it will need to install a new image tube, manufacture ccfl inverter, fine a coil and manufacture voltage multiplie and get the correct cathode ingnitor voltage, hard.
Sorry, I wish you all the luck. They one more option send it ATN and before you send it call ask what the price will be, and get the guys name or record it. stewbison

There is not picture its just vioce


Battery OK, IR light up, no green image on the intensifier image tube, correct! What type of voices are you hearing? Give ATN Aries 390 two Zolof and wait two day, just kidding!!! The noise is a crackling, high freqencey hum, popping, etc. Also remove the eye lens, it screw off, then remove the scope to someplace where it semi dark. Turn it on and observe the 18mm white plate and see if it turn green---no green---no look see---no image intensifier tube, it dead that is the mage tube. stewbison.

Hello, bad image intensifier tube and possible ccfl with it coil. Major repair on MK238 scope. I think they make a generation 2 tube for this scope like 350,360,390, and 410. Call AT ATN. stewbison

Sorry, You probly disloged the micro plate in the image intensifier tube or brok it. Very thing in scope MK258 is manufactured in Russia.

There is a good possibly it destroyed the image tube, sorry. stewbison

It's like new and hardly used. It starts to come on and you can see the green in the lens, then it goes dark. still shows power is on. I've tried fresh batteries with the same results. Where can I get it...


Hello. you do know that NV devise are to be used during the black hours of the night. Any type of bright lights will burn out the multi-plate coating. It only take a few time and the image intensifier tube is gone. The generation 3 and 3+ image tubes have auto gating that is, if the sensor detects bright lights with shut down. Now, this help but bright light with even the generations of image tube. It will still destroy them.


To get repaired you can send it to ATN in California. Just for them to take a look and see what wrong will $100+ plus shipping both ways and the cost of parts that is, if they have the parts.

What they will try to do, is that they will take your 258 scope in for trade. Then have you up grade from this 6 year old NV scope to a new model. They could also tell you it's not repairable.



Now, I have repair a few of the MK ATN NV scopes, and all the image intensifier tubes are manufactured in Russia, and there is good possibility that the hole scope was manufactured there.

The Russian manufactures will just print the American Vendor name and logo on the scope, monocular, binocular that they manufacture. You send to me and I will take look at and try to find a new image tube for it. drawbridge21.q.com. GB...stewbison
