Question about Night Owl Optics Cyclops Compact NOCC3 Monocular

1 Answer

Operating Problem The optic device still turns on and off, and the infa-red works on it as well, the two functions of the device. However, when I turn the device on and look through the monocular at night or in darkness, i see nothing and no light or image whatsoever is being put through the eyepiece. In short, i see the same thing while looking through the monocular while it is on, as i would while it is off. The problem MAY be due to light exposure, I'm not sure. Anyways, please help me or give me any input, because I'm thinking about just finding a place to send it for repair.

Hello, is the IR glowing red, don't look into the IR lens. Just place your hand in front of it and see the is a red glare on your had. If there is a red glare then IR is work.
Another thing when you taking a look see through the Night owl NV monocular there should be a green glow from the image intensifier tube, if not, then the NV monucular isn't working properly. stewbison

Hello Here Night Owl Optics owner manual web site for your monocular:

One more thing. DO NOT LOOK THROUGH NV MONOCULAR DURING THE DAY, OR LOOK AT BRIGHT LIGHTS. This will destroy the image intensifier tube. Bright lights will make it go south faster than Speedy Roadrunner. I need parts if the image tube is gone. Night Owl Optics in El Paso, TX will charge you about $200 plus parts and shipping to repair it. So, listen no looky at bright lights in the neighbor bedroom window, hey. GB...stewbison

Yes, at Night Owl Optics in El Paso, Texas. This is not a mandatory option. You can do it you self. You can see the white wire in a slot just under the aluminum thread ring for the battery cap.

Is this where the wire is broken at?

Need a small dental pick with 90 degree bend on the end/you can make one, also some tweezers or small needle nose pliers. Use the hook to remove the aluminum ring that is press into the plastic case.

Once, the ring is removed, reach in the Small slot with the tweezers and grab the wire. Now, gentle and I mean gently pull on that white wire until you enough wire to strip the teflon coating off.

Now, use the pick to cut a little small **** in side where the battery cap ring goes. Now, put a very minute drip of glue in the wire ****. Push the wire into the glue **** with the pick. Now, you can install the aluminum battery cap ring. Gently push it down and let the glue dry. Your done...awesome, no.


walk gently upon this earth, and she will good to you.... NO means Yes here!

Ice maker stopped making ice. Red light is flashing. Temperature is below freezing. We've already replaced icemaker and the refrigerator is not even 6 years old.

Ok open your freezer door and observe the flashing red light now push the flapper inwards keeping your finger and hand out of the way of the infa-red sensors you should observe the light it should not flash but glow steady if it does not a fairly simple attempt would be remove the 3 screws on that assembly pulling it away from its location and unplug the harness, now go to the other side and remove those screws and unplug the harness reassemble both sensors and screw back into place push the flapper back in is the red light steady? No then you will need a infa-reds sensor kit I believe they are now well over 100.00. I do hope clearing the pcb on the sensor by unplugging the harness works but if not you now know how to replace the infa-red sensor.........And if the light is working steady and no ice is in the imkr then fill with water and off you go....

Back in the tools disk is an option for infa red input/output connection to your computer. Some how this option was activated, and it is looking for your wifi.
