    Folks,

    I finally joined after browsing through the threads on Thermals. I came here to learn more about hog hunting, and night optics.

    Last November I bought a FLIR PTS536, two months ago, I put fresh batteries in, the dang thing would not even initialize.

    I am from Williamson County, just on the outskirts of Austin.

    Welcome to the forum and thanks for your service. Even though Flir has ended production of these scopes, their warranty is still valid and they still do repairs on them. At least, that is what a customer service rep from Flir told me when I asked about the production halt. Good luck.

    Welcome from Northeast Texas! Hope you can get that scope issued ironed out.

    I'm not to far north of you in Coryell County. Although I do most of my hog hunting in Bosque and Hamilton county

    Sometimes the battery holder doesn't seat very well. Try pushing the battery holder in with your finger and hold it in place, then turn the thermal on while holding it.
