Question about Nikon Laser 600 Rangefinder

Open Question

Powers up, but doesn't post a range.

Powers up fine and displays 88.8 w/ the 'm' & 'y'. When attempt to shoot a range, will not post any numbers. Have 3 horizontal lines and displays the 'Y' for yards, but will not post a number. Mode toggles 'm' to 'y' fine.

I compete in 3d archery so I bought a new rangefinder 2 days ago and it reads 19.2 yards at exactly 20 yards is there a way to adjust it to read properly?


Page 5 of the manual states: RANGING ACCURACY The ranging accuracy of the Scoutâ„¢1000 is plus or minus one yard / meter under most circumstances. The maximum range of the instrument depends on the reflectivity of the target. The maximum distance for most objects is 650 yards / 594 meters while for highly reflective objects the maximum is 1000 yards / 914 meters. Note: You will get both longer and shorter maximum distances depending on the reflective properties of the particular target and the environmental conditions at the time the distance of an object is being measured. The color, surface finish, size and shape of the target all affect reflectivity and range. The brighter the color, the longer the range. White is highly reflective, for example, and allows longer ranges than the color black, which is the least reflective color. A shiny finish provides more range than a dull one. A small target is more difficult to range than a larger target. The angle to the target also has an effect. Shooting to a target at a 90 degree angle (where the target surface is perpendicular to the flight path of the emitted energy pulses) provides good range while a steep angle on the other hand, provides limited ranging. In addition, lighting conditions (e.g. the amount of sunlight) will affect the ranging capabilities of the unit. The less light (e.g. overcast skies) the farther the unit's maximum range will be. Conversely, very sunny days will decrease the unit's maximum range.

The difference you are experiencing (20-19.2=.8 yards) is within the device ranging accuracy of 1 yard, and is in fact an error of only 4%. That is pretty accurate

Good luck with your device.

Is there a reset option for the Yardage Pro 1000. it displays the target rectical but does not aquire a target or give a range when I depress the fire button the word laser appears the displayed find...


The laser lense or receiver may need to be cleaned try a larger target at closer range.... they don't like dark colors... blk bear is really hard to target and u usually have to select a target close to bear... same as dark colored deer.... the laser gets absorbed instead of reflected

My range finder powers up but doesn't give distances


If your unit powers up and all the lcd segments are on.....The main circuit board has lost its programming. Check the model number. (on the back on a small black strip) call bushnell and find out if it can be reprogrammed. If you have the model in the picture it can be reprogrammed but, there is no guarantee how long that will last. I would look at some newer technology.

Good Luck to you!!!!

The RX series of range finders are not of the optic quality that other Leupold optics are. I have used my RX IV in place of my binoculars, but it is not adequate for glassing for game full time. The rangefinding abilities left a lot to be desired for me. As long a the object was under 450 yards, it worked fine. Past that was somewhat difficult to get a range at times. Hope this helps.
