Hello, You should have two switches, one for on/off and the other for IR intensifier (red). There should be or not two LED one green to indicate on/off--no green LED it off, if the green LED glows green it on. The same with IR luminator, red is glowing the IR is on, if not glowing red, it off.
Make sure you have new batteries and make sure that the polaity is correct---positive +, negative -.
Push the on button, if you push the right button the green LED will glow, then push IR button. Put you hand in front of the monocular and see if there is a red glow on the palm of you hand, if there is then the IR is on. Never look into the IR lens. Now you can look through the eye piece.
Now, if there no green tent inside of the monocular then there are other problems with you NV devise.
Never, and I mean NEVER look at bright light at night or in the daylight. This will destroy the image tube. That is one reason why they are call night vision....Only for viewing in the dark. stewbison
Hello, so the image intensifier tube light up. Shake it and listen for parts raddle around inside. How long have you own this Night Owl? Have you been using night vision on bright lights? If you have the intensifier tube is gone back to the Red Star....it died! The IR operates on a different switch than the controler, ccfl inverter, multiplier, image tube. Sorry. stewbison
There is good bet that I have a tube for this, but it not worth sending to me. Also, maybe it not the image intensifier tube but something else in the electronic.............Made in Russia--Red Star
Jello, you meam that IR isn't emitting red light? If the IR isn't working then it has a bad IR luminator, broken wire, bad switch. Now the on/off switch get it power from battery to IR, it just one simple circuit. Also don't look at the IR light if it's on. Also don't point or look at bright lights with this NV devices, it will destroy the image intensifier tube. stewbison
Hello. The red light is the IR (infrarad luminator) this inhance the night vision capabilities of the scope, monocular. Do not look directlly into the IR tube, The Paramount Moonlight has gone to the land of the Red Star. The scope contract is up. it junk, to expensive to repair. stewbison
These NV monoculars and this Guardian is made by ATN. Normally what happen is the image intensifier tube has gone back to Red Star country. In other words, it gone! The reason why the IR light up is it on a different circuit and has nothing to do with the internal electronic of this NV monocular.
All this IR light does is to provide invisiable light to inhance the image on image tube on very dark/clouded nights. Someone else using and NV devise can see IR light on your monocular and vise versa to you, you can see its IR light. stewbison
Hello, did you turn the Bushnell on. There two switches one for the on/off the other is for the IR and it say on as long as your finger pushs the button. Have you used during the daylight hours, looking a bright lights. If you have, the NV has gone south in one hurry.
If want come on even though the on/off switch working. If the NV devise is work there will be a green LED on the back indicating that the devise is on. stewbison
Hello, let do this. IR illuminator has a montary switch, that is when you push it comes on, and when you release it the IR goes off and it has a red LED to indicate the IR illuminator is being activated.
When you turn you binocular on there will be a green LED activated. This switch is DTSA---double throw sing activated. That is, one throw of the switch it turns on the binocular, the throw will turn off the binocular.
Also within the control panel there is timing circuit to keep the IR illumniator on for ten second the shuts off. Make sure you have the right switches etc. Let me know, then we can brain storm on this matter. stewbison
Hello, contact Night Vision Optics they should be able to get you one. You can
make your own by using an head light. Get an IR bulb, or change the lens to IR
lens. If you want to high tech then get head light will IR LED's. If the white
LED's are used don't use IR lens over this white LED's because of the light
spectrum is different for the the LED's than incandescent light. They will have
to be changed IR LED's..GB...stewbison
