    My >150 is not showing and still no range

  • BC Hunter Dec 14, 2008

    I used to get readings by clearing fields, holding power and mode for >1 sec but now I get no readings on any settings. Very frustrating product given the amount I paid for it.

    My RX-II worked great for a while, that is after I sent the first one back because it did not work at all. Anyway, It would range anything no matter how small but now only large and short range, under 60 yards. Please help.

I had the same problem, rangefinder would work only sometimes and only at short distances. Called customer support and was ready to send it in. Tech guy told me to turn off "First Target" ( or "last target") and turn on"LOS" (line of sight). Range finder now works perfectly at all distances. Apparently the first target feature doesnt work properly.

    I have been having trouble with distance since I bought this thing 2 years ago. Sometimes (1-5% of the time) it would give me distance, and other times nothing. I thought I was doing something wrong. I turned off the "First Target" and turned on LOS as instructed. That did it !
    I paid too much for the unit to just toss it asside and buy another. Very glad I went to this site.

I had the same problem and I just solved it!
On mine the greater than 150 symbol was showing and it wouldnt shut off, so on this site there is a solution, scroll around til the greater than 150 is flashing then hit the power butyton twice this will turn it off.

What is your favorite golf rangefinder, and why?

Bushnell Scout DX Rangefinderis my favorite one. It's a fantastic range finder.
It's offers some amazing feature and specification like...
  • 6x magnification
  • Range between 5-1000 yards
  • 3-volt CR2 Battery
  • Rangefinder Accuracy 5 yds
The Bushnell Scout DX Rangefinder will help you to pick from 3 different user modes by pressing the Mode button at the left side of the unit. First is the usual mode which can be used for most purposes up to 1000 meters and works well towards the pretty reflective surface.
When turned on, the Scout 1000 Laser Rangefinder liquid crystal display (LCD) will directly display icons like the bow and rifle mode. The bow mode will provide you with true horizontal distances from 5-99yd away, depending on the angle. The rifle mode, however, will permit you to get the angle and drop/holdover of your shot to the target from 100-800yd.

Simple tips on becoming a better archer

a few simple tips you can use for shooting your bow and to improve your arrow grouping . first it starts out with a good stance your feet should be shoulders with apart but not over spread will want to face 90 degrees to either the left or the right of the target depending on your shooting hand .second your draw ,when you draw your bow the bowstring should sit right below the far outside corner of your eye..thirdly calming your self take a few deep breaths and hold your last breath till your ready to shoot and settle your pins (sights) on your target remember to use the right pin for the right distance.. fourthly remember not to drop the bow when you release the arrow.i dont mean actually dropping the bow on the ground but lowering your extended arm holding the bow forward to quickly before the arrow has time to release .dropping the bow can and will cause your arrows to drop too ...shooting your bow at longer distance will tighten up your arrow grouping at closer distances

Sighting in. bore was set up at 100 yds.My bc 120 drop .045. I only have a shooting range of 100 yds. Do i zero my shots in at 100

Yes you do and if you shots are only off by .045 inches low of target, you have no problems. Once you are zeroed at 100 yards, you need a real world range where you can test 200 yards. Aim using the scope at 100 and whatever the drop is, you compensate on the vertical reticule in the sight. Or you use your clicks to raise the point of impact.

My beverage cooler MCBC58DST wont stay cool after it reaches target temp.

Throw it out and get another model from another company. Their units are junk!
They last a year, at best. Them and Magic Chef are one and the you may have to bite the bullet and get a real unit.

Good luck. I speak from experience...I've had four now. Complete junk!!

Everytime i boot up i get an error message stating that there was a boot failure and it loads in safe mode then it prompts me to buy some software to repair my netbook

Sounds like a combination of 2 things.
  1. Machine has contracted a virus.... On startup, the machine would never prompt you to buy anything unless it's infected with a virus or malware.
  2. Corrupted bootlog....Any boot failure is usually due to a corrupted bootlog. This can be for a variety of reasons ie improper shutdown, bad battery, or what I think is the case here is a virus or malware.
If possible, boot directly into safe mode (tapping F5 key while booting). From there you can try different options ie Last known good configuration, run memory test, system restore. If you can't run your anti-virus package in safe mode, you may need to attempt a system restore, preferably to a point just prior to where you picked up the virus.

How do i sight this scope in, say for 100 yds what are all the sighting knobs for...?

You sight it in by firing at a target. Place the target at 100 yds distance if that is where you want it set for. Then you use the knobs to adjust the aiming point so the bullets strike where you place the crosshairs. This can involve a lot of shooting, and it is best to use a bench so you don't get confused by inaccurate handheld shots. Once sighted in, there may be other knobs to adjust for different distances or windage. These should be set to a central or neutral position while doing the initial siting, or maybe set to the distance you are siting in. My sights don't have such luxuries, so I am not sure how they work.

I have a Brinks home safe model 5074. The combination no longer works, and the batteries are still good. The combination worked just last week. I do not have the keys. Any ideas?

I have a Brinks model 5074. I did the notarized statement to Action and they sent me a set of keys to open the safe. However, I also asked for the instructions on the sequence to set the electronic key pad. Obviously, they didn't send the ops instructions and it's a holiday weekend. Can you provide the insturctions?

Trying to make a copy- worked last week?

This is most likely only happening when attempting to scan through the CanoScan Toolbox. You can scan directly through ArcSoft PhotoStudio which came with the scanner. However, the error through Toolbox is likely caused by some limitation or restriction in the computer, possibly permissions of some sort. You may try deleting temp files from the Temp folder on the hard drive.
