TROUBLESHOOTING No lit screen - Incorrectly installed Battery. Reinstall the battery observing the correct polarity - Greasy contacts of the battery or the battery house contacts. Clean the contacts Dimly lit screen - Discharged battery. Charge or replace the battery - Dirty contacts in the battery Compartment. Clean the contacts The illuminator does not work - Greasy contacts of the illuminator or of its attachment socket. Clean the contacts The scope does not work. - Check that the batteries are installed properly. - Check the charge of the batteries. Replace if they are weak. Do not use old batteries with new ones. The image does not appear in focus. Bring the inspected object to the center of the image. Turning the objective lens ring (7), and/or the eyepiece (2) adjust to achieve the clearest image on the screen. Repeat the steps of focusing if necessary If the view still does not seem in focus, clean the lenses; they could be foggy or dusty. Unit flashes It is normal for the unit to flash within the first 2 minutes of activation. If the flashing continues afterwards the following is a possible cause: bright environment (even with the cap closed!) Condensation accumulates on the parts. It is O.K. to use the scope in cold. However, when the unit is brought from the cold into a warm environment, it has to warm up for up to 5 hours (not minutes!). Only then it is allowed to turn it ON again. Visibility decreases and / or disappears. Bright light sources (moon, projectors or headlights) may cause visibility to degrade or even completely disappear. Move the scope away from the light source immediately. • NS-156 is a safe product. However, normal safety procedures must be utilized like with regular daytime riflescope. • The reticles is always in one plane with the image of the target which makes surveillance and aiming even more comfortable; • Smooth adjustment of lighting brightness on the reticles enables aimed fire at targets differently illuminated and also provides the possibility to adjust the optimum level of reticles lighting that is most comfortable for the viewer. • A small-sized adjustment mechanism which is built-in the lens allows vertical and horizontal adjustments of the reticule; • The size of the battery compartment allows the use of optional rechargeable batteries as well as standard AA batteries commonly available; • Weaver type mount on the sight; • Soft rubberized eyepiece makes the viewing more comfortable. Warning! Having been exposed to low temperature, NS-156 should be kept in a warm place during no less than 2 hours prior to switching on in a warm room. NS-156 is intended for use within the range of illumination from 5x10-3 lux to 1 lux at ambient temperature from 20°C (-4°F) to +40°C (104°F) and relative humidity no more than 80% at 20°C (68°F). Precautions NS-156 is a sophisticated precise optical instrument equipped with electronics. Therefore, it should be handled with due care. • Keep your device away from direct sunlight, impacts, dust, moisture, and sudden changes of temperatures. • Do not touch the optical surfaces with fingers. Doing so may damage the anti-reflection coating. • Cleaning of optical surfaces is possible only with professional camera lens cleaning supplies. • To clean the exterior of the device, use only a soft clean cloth. • Do not take the cover off the lens if not necessary. • Keep away from heating appliances and central heating. • Make sure to switch off the unit during periods of non-operation and when storing the device for long period of time. • Do not apply superfluous efforts at work with lens assembly, agile elements and thread connections. • Due to considerable optical magnification of the eyepiece some small structures inside the tube coating in the form of dark and/or white points may be seen in the field of view, which does not affect the serviceability of the device. 3.
