The problem may be the same as I experienced with two Millett scopes:
I have had two Millett (made by Bushnell) scopes fail to "light-up" -- the usual symptom is that you turn on (or try to) the "light" (actually, a laser diode) and nothing happens or it goes on but goes off again when you shoot or bump the gun for any reason. I discovered the reason: There is a ring under the battery screw-cap that gets loose.

To repair:

  1. Take off the battery and remove the battery.
  2. You will find a ring that surrounds the battery that is loose.
  3. Remove that ring by unscrewing it the rest of the way -- this is so that you can apply a drop of blue Loctite.
  4. Screw that ring back in -- if you use Loctite, you won't have to really tighten it. If you choose not to use Loctite, it probably will loosen again no matter how tight you get it. To really tighten, you need a spanner wrench with pins (one scope) or thin blades (the other scope). I used a small Allen wrench and small screwdriver, respectively, in lieu of a spanner wrench.
  5. 5. Replace battery and cover. The Loctite needs at least 10 minutes to set before firing; 24 hours for a full cure.

Obviously, it you are at the range, simply retighten the ring so you can continue shooting and do the Loctite when you have more time.

    Step 1 should say "remove battery cap".

    I changed my mind on removing the ring after fixing three scopes. Better to leave the ring in-place and loose, apply a drop of Loctite with a toothpick, and tighten the ring. If you remove the ring, it is easy to lose the indexing of the disk below the ring with the control knob. If you do remove the ring, the disk has a "pointer" that should point to the "0" setting on the control knob. Also, be sure the threads are clean before reinstalling the battery cover!

Check for loose connections. Jiggle the wiring at various places, for example under the dash, floor, side wall, engine compartment, engine bay fuse box and around the battery with key on engine off condition.

Shutter will open but not close


Sounds like the camera is not getting battery current, since that is how it will act without batteries. Does the meter needle respond to changing light when switched on? If not, check battery polarity -- the + end touches the strip at the bottom of the battery compartment, the - end touches the battery cap. If that all checks out right, one of the wires connecting the battery compartment to the innards may be corroded or loose.

Camera turns on only for a moment


Hi,


If you've recently dropped the camera you may have lens damage that is causing the camera to shut down. If you haven't dropped it, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try solution before you do anything else:

Step1: Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper).


Step2: Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced.


Step3: Remove the lens from the camera. Put the body cap on the camera, and put the rear lens cap on the back of the lens. Make sure you are in a clean environment.


Step 4: Take the rear cap off the lens and use the blower to blow large pieces of dust off the lens. Go around the entire rear part of the lens with the blower.


Step 5: Dip the swab in the isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. You should use only a light amount; the best way to ensure this is to wear light vinyl gloves, like those used by health care providers, and squeeze the swab with your fingers after dipping it in the solution. Gently clean the contacts on the lens with the swab. After you have done so, use the blower on the lens contacts again.

Step 6: Repeat the procedure on the contacts on the camera body.


Step 7: Reattach the lens to the camera and test it to see if the error or focusing problems still exist. If they do, try cleaning the contacts again.


Thank you!!

I need to know how to mount a used Millett 15-4x32 scope on a mussle loader


If your rifle is taped for scope rings this is a easy thing to do, if you do not have any screw holes on top of the barrel you will have to have a smith drill and tap them out for you. If you try to do this yourself be sure you do not drill to deep. You will need a blind hole tap, most scope mounts are are 6 x 32 treads. You will need scope rings that will let the scope sit on top without letting the bell end touch the barrel, easy if you want sight thru bases. Go get er done! lets get ready to go. It is just in time for a good Thanksgiving Deer roast, than some chili for the week after. Send Pictures.

No instructions in box for Millett multi-dot pistol sight.


why do you need a, a multi-dot sight anyway, unless your into competition, if you like sights keep them for a rifle. realistically a sight isnt for an handgun, when in situations your closed quarters fighting. Don't be having to much accessories galore it marks you as wanna be SF
