I just had my first day shooting and the scope worked fine for 3h yesterday. I zeroed it. However it did not move the reticle when manually changing the distance from 50m to 100m so I was low, but that is another story. The firmware was already updated to the latest, so I did not factory reset or update. Today I removed the SD-Card put it in my computer and powered on the scope - its DEAD! Its the same as described here: atnowners.com/thread/2657/hud-on-4k-pro-20 The camera shows the picture and dims somewhat, even shifts the view a bit, but no HUD, no reticle, no menu, no buttons work, zooming does not work. Holding the power button for a long time turns the device off, when it comes on again its the same story, no HUD, etc. I tried to load a firmware update on my SD-card (xsight4k.bin, xsight4k_3_1_08_436.bin), but the scope does not react at all to the firmware in the root directory of the sd-card. Draining the power did not work, too: The scope shows the viewfinder, no hud, after a short time the screen goes dark and a while later the scope powers itself off.
I just now found out that the device should not be able to handle a 128GB Card, but it formatted it OK, I used it on my Mac and viewed videos and pics from earlier sessions, etc. It even showed up as 133GB free on my mac, so I just assumed it can handle those SD-Cards ... strange.

See posts "http://atnowners.com/thread/2683/4k-pro-hd-white-screen". Roll back firmware to the .386 file if you have if not download it from the link in the posts. Try that. Or try "https://www.facebook.com/groups/ATNXSightUsers/"... the bug fix first.
I tried the USB update, but it does not let me choose a firmware. It downloads and flashes the latest automatically. Anyway it gets stuck at 100% progress-bar at the orange message "Init Board Done" and does not reboot. After that ... same symptoms as usual. Time to send it back on Warranty. :-(
Thanks, I found the instructions and tried them. I found out that the virtual Windows machine (Virtual Box) did not re-capture the USB Device (Amba IOUSBHostDevice) properly during flashing and one had to manually click it two times, so the update works and proceeds until FINISHED. Unfortunately the menu did not reappear after reboot and all was broken as before. :-(
Now its really time to send it back on Warranty. :-(

dabernathy: Hi all... I have 3 ATN scopes and was very disappointed with the X-Sight IIs. I just purchased a 4k Pro 3x14. I have run the new 4k Pro on my AR-15 and now on my Mossberg MVP-308 Patrol. So far I'm pleased with the 4k Pro. and looks like i'm stuck w/IIs.

dtxwolf: Just got my X-Sight 4k and the supplied charging usb cable barely fits into port on scope, and falls out very easy. Is that normal? Battery icon is half blue, so I'm not sure if its even charging. Any thoughts?

buckeye160: My x-sight 4K pro locks up randomly. It will be fine for a couple days and then the screen locks up or most of the time there is light on in scope but no video. It has ruined my coyote hunting every time i took this scope. No response from atn.

tupelojim: FOR COLMATH I believe the Obsidian 4 does not work with X-Sight II 3-14X, use the plain "Obsidian" APP
