This is 2nd nightvision we've have from ITT, and even w/ new batteries
it fails to turn-on... ??
I'm willing to send it to an authorized repair facility..but I can't find repair
info from "West Marine" (seller), or any other source.
Please advise T/R...or a U.S. repair outlet.

Kello, so you been using you scope on peep holes, hey. I don't know what peep looks like. I see them. Sir, have you been looking at bright light in bedrooms or in the dark? I would think that your ITT Mariner has a loose wire, bad solder joint, wigjt are loose...dad news those wigit. It probably a loose wire. If it continues there is a good possiblity it with quick working. If you know someone that work on this thing, see what they can do. stewbison
How long have you had this ITT Night Mariner 160 NV monocular? Sorry, it needs to taken a part and trouble shoot the electronic components and image intensifier tube. stewbison. If I had my shop set up but I sold all of my electronic test equipment. Contact ITT and ask them what to do. stewbison
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
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"
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.
My advice ,if i were you, would be to leave the batteries in for a day and leave your unit turned on. either leave the cap on, or put it in a closet and see if it works better. The new AAA batteries should be fine i'm sure you have how to put the four in correct, and yes they are all that's needed. But leaving your unit on for the day will do a few things. First, it puts a current through all of the working components, i.e. light gathering elements and your infrared components. They may "wake up" from being on and they may not. But at the very worst you are only out the cost of four triple A's.
replace with new battery and retest. this unit has a itt 2nd gen tube with an encapsuled power supply next to the tube the power supply is probably faulty the two sides of this nv are also siliconed together making it a difficult unit to dissasemble for testing but i have done this model before
