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 :)

It should focus normally from some 50ft up. Try to adjust the dioptery on the rear ocular.

Turns on but cannot see anything


Hello, there could be a number of problems but 90% of the problems with these Russian manufactured monoculars, binoculars, scopes is the the image intensifier tube. First they are cheaply made, they don't taken much abuse, and if any bright light such as, street lights, car lights, turn on the NV monoculars during the day light hours could and would total damage these Russian manufactured tubes.

I hate to tell you but there is a good possibility that the image intensifier tube is bad, sorry. Night Owl Optic and many other US companies use cheap Russian manufactured night vision devise to sell; of course, they make a huge profit on these NV devises.

There are a lot of countries in the world that manufacture NV monoculars and other NV devises. Some are good and most are just slap together.

If you want a good night vision monocular be prepared to pay top $$$ for them.
Made in the USA, Europe, England, and even in China.

List it on eBay as Night Vision Monocular and under condition: broken for parts.
I wish you luck. GB...stewbison

I have put new batterys in my nv-100 still nothing happens,the illuminator lights up.


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

My Night Owl Cyclops NOCC3 night vision monocular wont pick up the infra red light properly so I can't view anything at night!!!! I haven't the lens cap off in light only when it's dark out and it won't...


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

My cyclop-1 won't turn on and I can see nothing through it at all


Hello, welcome to the world of Russian night vision devises. About 85% of the problems these NV stuff that is manufactures in the EX-Soviet-Union is the image intensifier tube which is the major component in these devises. It cost prohibitive to have it fixed, especially by Night Owl. They will charge you $100+ plus shipping both ways and parts. Sell it on eBay for NV monocular as parts.
or you can throw it a way. Sorry, 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
