It's like new and hardly used. It starts to come on and you can see the green in the lens, then it goes dark. still shows power is on. I've tried fresh batteries with the same results. Where can I get it...
Hello. you do know that NV devise are to be used during the black hours of the
night. Any type of bright lights will burn out the multi-plate coating. It only
take a few time and the image intensifier tube is gone. The generation 3 and 3+
image tubes have auto gating that is, if the sensor detects bright lights with
shut down. Now, this help but bright light with even the generations of image
tube. It will still destroy them.
To get repaired you can send it to ATN in California. Just for them to take a
look and see what wrong will $100+ plus shipping both ways and the cost of parts
that is, if they have the parts.
What they will try to do, is that they will take your 258 scope in for trade.
Then have you up grade from this 6 year old NV scope to a new model. They could
also tell you it's not repairable.
Now, I have repair a few of the MK ATN NV scopes, and all the image
intensifier tubes are manufactured in Russia, and there is good possibility that
the hole scope was manufactured there.
The Russian manufactures will just print the American Vendor name and logo on
the scope, monocular, binocular that they manufacture. You send to me and I will
take look at and try to find a new image tube for it. drawbridge21.q.com.
