That is not oil.....its thermal burns. Thermal burns happen when the eyepiece cap is not used. Sunlight burns the surface of the LCD display. This is permanent damage. Cleaning will not fix this. The repair center can fix.

My pinseeker fall in water. Will it function again?


There are three models of the "Pinseeker" The model TourV2 and Medalist are NOT waterproof. The Pinseeker 1500 & 1600 are waterproof. I've seen people try and bake them in a oven....They "baked" the rubber cover right off. That's funny...

Lukewarm air and time is the best way to dry.
(air that is too warm WILL damage the LCD inside)
good luck!!!!

My pinseeker 1500 reads the same distance no matter what the distance really is. Has new batteries. Could it be out of alignment? ROB


If it's reading the same no matter what you shoot at, the problem is the cpu board inside has lost its programming. Bushnell can reprogram it for $20.00...If you've dropped it a few times it might need an alignment.$50 If you don't use the eyepiece cap....(you got those little oily looking wiggles in the display) you will need a LCD too..$15

No yardage displayed


The rangefinder is out of alignment. Vibration, dropping these units make small mirrors inside move slightly. Over time the receiver cannot see what the transmitter puts out. Bushnell can fix, 4-5 weeks w/o unit.

Apparent moisture inside my bushnell pinseeker 1500


If when you look through the eyepiece and see some lite yellowish, lite greenish, oily looking wiggles, (sometimes black) spots you have thermal burns on the LCD display. This happens when the eyepiece cap isn't used and sunlight damages the surface of the display. The unit was left pointing skyward for too long. Most players take off the cap and don't use it. Bad decision. Bushnell can repair but, about $80+shipping......4-6 weeks without unit

Bushnell 1500 Pinseeker Tournament Edition optics problem


This is what happens to Pinseekers when the eyepiece cap in not used. Sunlight is focused through the lens right on the surface of the Liquid Crystal Display.(LCD) The heat generated burns into the surface of the display. The black spot happens when the pinseeker was left pointing skyward, when the sun is high, for a hour or so. The LCD can be replaced. I would have it aligned if it needs it. Mail it in to bushnell for repairs. mtg

PINSEEKER 1500 W/SLOPE


Mine was doing this too, although I can't officially confirm it from anyone in "the know". I guessed this mean't "low on battery", I replaced the battery and the flashing lob went away.
