View Full Version : PVS-7B nightvision problems..

08-05-2010, 3:26 PM
I have a set of PVS-7b that arent working. I took them in on a trade recently and they wont turn on...and yes, I definately know how to use them so it isnt operator error. I tried new batteries as well. When you turn the switch to "on" nothing happens..no noise, and nothing is visible at all. Any of you guys familiar to trouble shooting these? Back in the day, I would have just turned them back into the armory and Id get a new pair from the optics tech but those days are long ago,lol. There appears to be no physical damage at all, and initially when the guy was going to trade them to me, they worked fine..He says they were not dropped, gotten wet, or exposed to bright light while on, but who knows..Any experience here guys or anyone have a recommended repair source? Thanks

When you rotate it all the way to IR light do you see the red light come on inside?

Could be any number of things. This is honestly where you need to contact the manufacturer - no simple solution.
