Why is thermal shut down happening soon as I turn on next book Aries 8lolipop?ii lost Dec receipt and paid for two yr warranty!I feel like I threw away 118.00


possibly because you did not put it in the proper category is why it comes back as cars and trucks . sounds like you might have a bad battery in the unit if it gets hot .

As you probably know that internal electronic are manufactured in Russia. I just repair an ATN MK238. Verything from the image intensifier tube to power supply was shot.

I have an ATN MK238 that will power up, like the power LED will come on, but the screen will not power up when you look into the reticle. I checked the tube by unscrewing the front lens and it is a uniform...


Hello, it has a none functioning image intensifier tube, or shorted ccfl. All the electronic components are manufactured in Russia. Does this let you know what wrong with you ATN MK238 scope now...it's cheap. I don't fix these ATN MK-258 anymore, it to hard to find parts. ATN is no help, they won't sell parts. It will have to be sent to ATN for repairs at approx. $200+ for repairs. I do have a couple of Russian image intensifier tubes, that work. The last MK238 I repaired, I had to build a ccfl (cold cathode flourscent Lamp) inverter, replace the coil and voltage multiplier, and fit in a confine space with insulation from electric arcing.

Here is infor for you. The ccfl can be purchased. They are companys that will make you a voltage multipliers. So, here is information: voltage to ccfl (6 volts) then the voltage goes in the inverter
to convert it switching DC voltage (5.5 volts). Then the coil (transformer) step it ot about 930 voltage to the voltage multiplier (which has four stages---the first stage with double the voltage to 1860 volt to the second stage which double it, then third stage which double it, then finally to fourth stage which doubles the third stage to about 15KV (hight voltage here, it will bit ya here, but no current--amps.) this will the cathode on iit, then light up the tube 18mm film that is coated--it will turn green)

Now, this the simplies way of tube operation, it more complex than that. The power supply for this Russian image inten. tube is sealed in dielectric jell, and the voltage multiplier is sealed in epoxy with the tube are none repairable.

There are quit a few other NV companies, that use Russian tubes and electronic. They cheap but functional. The bottom line here is the profit. Don't get me wrong here. There a few Russian compies that make some very good gen 2 tubes. If you can replace the tube will gen 2 tubes and powere supply. I hope this helps, Richard.

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

Lens diagram aries 238


Hi, the objective lens on this ATN MK238. Now these lenses are Russian Optics and they manufacture very good to excellent optics. Take the lens to a camera shop, if they can fix it, then they will know who will. If you send it to ATN they just throw away your lens and replace it with a new lens. If you are going to replace the lens then up grade to 90mm to 100mm lens, OK. stewbsion

Power light turns on, Infra red illuminator works, cant see anything in scope. Reticule doesnt light up and no vision through optics. New battery etc.


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

Tubes can go without warning, but power supplies usually do. Get someone to check if PSU takes a current at switch on and then measure the HV.
