Question about ATN American Technologies Network Aries MK238 Night Vision Scope

1 Answer

I have an Aries mk 208/230? night vision sight that's been sitting in the closet for several years. I put the batteries in it and it failed to work. I bought a new battery for it and it still does not work. The green power led comes on and the red ir led works but that's about it. What's your thoughts on my problem? Thanks for ;your time and effort KT

As you probably know that internal electronic are manufactured in Russia. I just repair an ATN MK238. Verything from the image intensifier tube to power supply was shot. I managed to round up 1 gen green Russian image tube, but the ccfl inverter, tolorid coil, voltage multiplier I had to manufactured them. Sorry, wish that I could be more help. stewbison

    Hello, Thompson., The problem will you ATN MK Series rifle scopes are the image intensifier tube. The are cheaply manufactured in Russian. I would like to get some of the Chinese Generation 2 and Generation2+ image intensifier tubes But I will have to buy 500 each. I will tell you, send the scope to me [email protected], I have a couple of new Russian tubes This scope is worth fixing and even to upgrade because of the aluminum case I will fix it for you. I wish you luck buddy. GB...stewbison

Put in battery and light comes on but nothing happens, i have a aries mk 238


Jeepers! I have work on these ATN MK238 before. All internal electronic are made in Russia. There are two major problem with them. Image intensifier tube goes lights out, the ccfl inver, coil and voltage multiplier are seal in dielectric jell and epoxy. can't work of them. I can work on them, but I am not. Who ever work on it will need to install a new image tube, manufacture ccfl inverter, fine a coil and manufacture voltage multiplie and get the correct cathode ingnitor voltage, hard.
Sorry, I wish you all the luck. They one more option send it ATN and before you send it call ask what the price will be, and get the guys name or record it. stewbison

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.
