This is by design. You can replace it with a toggle switch from radio shack. You will need to know how to solder.

My cyclop-1 won't turn on and I can see nothing through it at all

Hello, welcome to the world of Russian night vision devises. About 85% of the problems these NV stuff that is manufactures in the EX-Soviet-Union is the image intensifier tube which is the major component in these devises. It cost prohibitive to have it fixed, especially by Night Owl. They will charge you $100+ plus shipping both ways and parts. Sell it on eBay for NV monocular as parts.
or you can throw it a way. Sorry, GB...stewbison

My night vision scope will not turn on. My LEDs work but you can not see anything in the lens. Yes the cap is off. I tried new batteries. It has very few hours of operating time. Help!

Hello, Welcome to the world of Russian night vision system. That is right, Night Owl Optics Cyclops NOCC3 is manufactured in Russian. The biggest problem with these monocular and binoculars and even scope is that they use cheap 1st generation Russian image tubes and everything else. It would be cost prohibitive to have it fixed, that is, if Night Owl Optics will fix it for you. Hint: Auction it on Ebay as night vision parts. Sorry, GB...stewbison

It wont power on?

It's probably the capacitor, or the pushbutton energizer.

It's really easy to dis-assemble this unit, and it works really well for a $100 night vision scope.

You can replace the pushbutton with a toggle switch from Radio Shack.

Nightvision stopped working when a light was turned on

Unfortunately the old Cyclop is no more. Repairing night vision is very expensive. There are newer better models available for the cost of the repair if it were possible. Yukon make a great monocular the Seawolf. I still have a Cyclop but the Seawolf kills it for view and quality and its waterproof.
