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, 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

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, on your Night Owl Optic NV100, it same as the Kalinka Zenith NV. First, you IR switch is a montary switch. As long as your finger push the button it stay on. Release the button it goes off.

The montary green glow after shuting off you monocular NV devise is do to capacitors discharging and keep the image intensifier tube on for a few seconds. The switch on/off is a Russian computer plastic switch it could stick sometimes. See if the rubber cover over the switch can be removed with taken it apart. If the rubber cover can be removed. Then a good switch cleaner to the clean the switches (both at the same time) See if this works. stewbison

Not all the time, but if you release the button the image will fade to nothing in a minute or so. This is how it switches itself off. Don't expose it to light while it's powered up as this might damage it.
