Had the same problem with my first Bushnell V2 (Slope). Worked intermittently and sometimes just quit altogether. Finally had to send it back to them. They sent it back and said nothing was wrong with it. I called them and told them they were wrong and I was sending it back and they should take more time in testing it. This time they acknowledged problem, said it was fixed and sent it back to me. I wound up getting a real good deal on the V2 without the slope calculator (necessary if you want to use it in championships). Used this one for some time with no problem, but now it just went dead again. Battery tests well into green area on meter, but I'm going to try a brand new one and see what happens. From all the things I've read about the V2 and battery life, it looks like you might need pretty fresh batteries to keep it going.
Can you check that the new battery is an alkaline battery? If it is, and you are still getting the E31 error code, you will need to return your rangefinder to Bushnell to have it reprogrammed.
E31 is a programming error code. Most of the time this comes from using non-alkaline batteries or from letting a battery die in the unit. Non-alkaline batteries just don't generate enough current for the laser to operate properly.
The Bushnell Tour V2 is notorious for suddenly stopping operating. Normally, if I slap the sides it starts working again. This has happened many times. However, two days ago it quit working again and I have slapped the heck out of it and it still doesn't work. I have checked the batteries and they are great. Try slapping. If someone out there knows something else that will help me, please let me know. Slapping no longer helps in my case.
for this you will need to send the unit into their repair at 8500 marshall drive lenexa ks 66214 4-6 week turnaround and put your name address and telephone number inside the package. if there is a cost they will send an estimate.
If sorry to say that your Compact 600 is on its last legs. Bushnell doesn't service them anymore. I think your unit is about 7-10 years old. Parts are not available. Think about some newer technology. "Pinseeker" technology is the best!!!! They have three models with this: "The Medalist", The"Tour V2", and the all mighty "Pinseeker 1600" Prices start at $195 through $285 from the service center.Call 800.423.3537 and talk to them.......
E6 means the unit has cpu or program failure....The only thing that bushnell can do is replace your unit with a newer one Its over 10 years old..... They won't have any parts or able to reprogram it.(they just do keep parts that long) They will offer you a model 20-1916 ($151.00 bill) (you can it see it @ bushnell .com.) The better model is........if you play golf is the Medelist(20-1354) or the Tour V2(20-1930).....The top of the line is the Pinseeker 1600(20-5105 without the slope function) or the Pinseeker 1600(20-5106 with the slope function).......If you hunt I would go with the model (20-1932 with the ARC fuction..... This is the real deal....call them
