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

Hello, Is there two switches on the NV monocular? If so, one is for the IR illuminator and other is for turn the scope off/on. Also, does each switch have a LED associated with it?

If you release the IR button it turns off the IR..

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

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

Hello, Your Paramount 3-6X was manufactured for Night Vision and Night Vision sold them to Moonlight which had their name Paramount and logo install on the monocular. Now, Moonlight uses a foil type sticker with their name and logo on the sticker and it is installed on the Night Vision Inc. Russian NV devises. Here is the bad news. The hole monocular was manufactured in Russia. I'm telling you the truth.

Forget about getting it repaired. The cost to repair your monocular would be cost prohibitive.
Auction it off on eBay, or you can send me a message through fixya. What do you want for it? Sorry, GB....stewbison

ITT night mariner 160


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.
