Battery OK, IR light up, no green image on the intensifier image tube, correct! What type of voices are you hearing? Give ATN Aries 390 two Zolof and wait two day, just kidding!!! The noise is a crackling, high freqencey hum, popping, etc. Also remove the eye lens, it screw off, then remove the scope to someplace where it semi dark. Turn it on and observe the 18mm white plate and see if it turn green---no green---no look see---no image intensifier tube, it dead that is the mage tube. stewbison.

Hello - nice looking scope and with 100 % rave reviews.
Not much to adjust really - cover off , battery inserted , turn on - adjust brightness. IR illuminator on'off.
I've just read through page 5 on user manual - at least they have a 2 yr warrantee and some phone numbers to get support.
Here is user manual / guide + trouble shooting tips. http://www.nightvisiongear.com/documents/Aries390PaladinNightVisionRifleScope.pdf
A simple test is looking at a distant street light - just incase the 'amplifier' is very sensitive. (that causes BLACK spots) .
If the amp is damaged , they would have a test -- Ray

Tubes can go without warning, but power supplies usually do. Get someone to check if PSU takes a current at switch on and then measure the HV.

Observe the IR illuminator with a digital camera and see if it if fluctuating in output brightness. If that is OK, the problem may be in the HV circuit. They are both easy to fix if the person has some experience.
