SOURCE: cannot adjust " 3 -> 'infinity' "

As you probably know by now, you have in your hands a CHEAP russian 1st Gen. NV device and that whatever $$ you paid for it was $$ way too much. The russians make these things for the export (think USA) market from left over 1st Generation junk that did not work well even for THEM. The USA 1st Gen. is to them what our 3rd Gen. is to us.
There is no repair or service centers for this russian NV in the USA. This is a prime example of 'Buyer Beware'. If it looks too good to be true, it's probably junk. Save your $$ and buy American.
Remember that '1stGen(generation) is very OLD NV technology,(this what we used in Viet-Nam in the early'60's, it was like 'rocket science' then, but it was all we had) the picture will be very grainy and fuzzy and the picture will appear to be sorta floating about. Pointing it at a bright light can burn out the element. Yikes! There is NOTHING you can do to adjust this to make it look good. The 2nd Gen. is only a little better, just a little more expensive. The 3rdGen. is much better and you will have a pretty clear picture and happy results. When you see these TV shows where they are using NV, they most likely are using 3rdGen NV. You will spend much more $$ for these units. The 4thGen. NV is the latest and top dog but you will have to hock your car, your dog and give up eating for a long time to afford these units. Go to; www.nightvision4less.com/night_vision_scopes.htm and you will see all four types of NV USA made. I have nothing to do with nor am I associated with this company, I simply give it to you as a reference point in your quest for information about NV products. Good luck :)

Contact the company who manufacture ths NV-300. I can tell you now ti's manufactured in Russia. Well, check the internet for "Night Vision 300, Also, this could be Night Owl Optics, Bushnell Optics, Lebel/Zinth Optics, ATN, etc.

Send me a picture and give me the diameter of the eyepiece on both ends. Most of these monoculars will basically have the same parts. GB...stewbison

SOURCE: Can't get IF to work on my night vision monocular

There are only 6 versions of night vision showing, it sounded like you said f5, but the only one that looks like yours is a FT 300.

This requires a 3V lithium battery, you must make sure it's lithium .

Duracell D/L 1/3 N , radio shack 23265, Eveready 2L-76.

Here are the instructions, '

To use, depress the Energizer button, and release. A gradual fading of the image is typical. Press the Energizer button again to re-power. If your unit includes a self-energizingpower source (i.e., does not require batteries), simply depress and release the top lever one time and repeat as necessary.3.The infrared (IR) illuminator works to enhance the available ambient light in areas of extreme darkness, or brighten the electronic image in very dim ambient light. Utilize as needed by depressing the IR button (next to the Energizer button onmost units). Also, please note that on self-energizing units only, the detachable IR illuminator requires a 3-volt lithium battery.

Let me say that this is not a IF, infra red, Infra-red picks of heat from the environment, so when you look at something say a person you see their body heat, they cost thousands.

This is just a night vision, it does not even say what GEN this is.

There are three GEN's, GEN 1, GEN 2, GEN 3.

GEN 1 is cheap, GEN 3 is expensive. Starlight is the best, but your looking at spending 3000,00 for a good one.

Don't expect this one to be that good.
Here is the manual.

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

Have a camo binoc that only markings are CHINA and NIGHT VISION...but cant find battery placement....might not truely be night vison?


Hello, Kalinka Baigish is Russian and they do make NV devises but China? Now, the Chinese do manufacture NV Image Intensfier tubes to Generation 2 but manufacture the hole night vision devise is new to me. Of course, about 1/3 of the world countries manufacture some sort of night vision devises or there parts.

Contact Night Vision Optics they sell these Russian night vision devise under the brand name: Night Vision Optic and they have a logo. There are only companies in the US that manufacture night vision stuff. Also, some of the US companies do use US image tubes and other electronic components, and maybe US optics are used.

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

What kind of batteries do i use and where do the batteries go?


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

I have a NV-100 Compact with illuminator should I have to hold the switch pushed in all the time I am trying to use it?


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.
