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.
At night. You can sight in the 390 during the day in simi-darkness with a day
light lens cover over the front of the scope. (the snap cover has a small hole
in the center for look see during the day) 50 foot room with a target, bench
rest and a rifle vise. You'll also need laser bore sight Figure you rifle
ammunition ballistic and how many yards before it starts to drop. Set the 390
reticle to the red do on the target one or two inch above. Dead center set up
will give you about two hundred yards on center... approx. Now you know this is
a static test or sight in. During night because of some distortion and noise
from the scope. 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.
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
you may fine that the tube has broken or there is a fault within the nv unit its self, if its all dark (no picture tube lit up) it could still be the battery box playing you up, iv got the same sight and it give me the same problem it was the batterty box in mine
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.
