Don't know what the ''Mode'' button is used for? Thanks

This mode hones in on the flag. Click it off when you are measuring distances to a bunker, tree, etc.

Mine showed the same, found to be the mode button stuck in, removed button and used cotton bud with alcohol rub into the rubber seal, gave it a good clean and now as good as new. Hope this helps.

When I look through the eyepiece the laser is no there

If you are seeing the circle through the view finder when pressing top button ( so battery is OK ) but nothing happens when you press the button on top a second time to operate the laser it may be the same problem I experienced .... I noticed a slight rattling from inside my V2 when I shook it .
As it was around 8 years old and a bit battered I striped it down , peel off top and bottom rubber bits then the front rubber cover , this exposes small screws which can be removed easily with the correct screwdriver , once all removed the plastic covers can be separated it carefully and remember which way it all fits back ! It's not that technical but a bit fiddly , I noticed that a small mirror ( prism ) about 1cm long had fallen from its location and was rattling around , I relocated it and added a tiny amount of glue to its edge fixing it in place , I made sure the glass was clean with no fingerprints on it...reassembled and worked fine .... you will need some glue to refix rubber bits , good luck .

Have a Leica Disto basic and need to know how to change measurement from m to ft.

Press and hold the circle button down, after a few seconds it will flash 'beep on/off', dont stop holding it down, it will then cycle to 'units', press +/- to change between metric and imperial, then press the = button to store. If you keep holding it down you can set the reference pont (where the measurement is taken from, the back, middle or front edge of the machine) add an offset (add take away from the displayed dimension), and you can also reset the machine.

I have a Bushnell Medalist Pinseeker golf laser rangefinder. I recently replaced the battery with a 9V Duracell Alkaline, and now the Pinseeker mode is not working (it will not sight different targets) and...

The "Pinseeker" mode is a automatic mode Sometimes it uses it, somtimes it doesn't. It is designed to recognize a vertical shaft. (Pin) Now IF you hold the power button can see if all of the LCD segments are burning. If the segments fade out later in the game.... (bad LCD) Make sure the Pinseeker mode it on...(flag symbol on the left) Hit the button on the side if you need to. IF it still doesn't lock on to pins, it needs an alignment.

Dropped from a golf cart....numbers dont come on

If you hear a rattle.....The "shock" may have broken a internal lens. (BAD) IF not, you may have just knocked it out of alignment. The rattle is the snake...and it bit you. NO rattle....It may can be re-aligned.

Good Luck!!!!!

Operates very sporadically

The LCD is defective. Go to or call (800) 423-3537. Tell the service rep what model you have and they will send you one. If you are nice enough they might send it for free......

remember to vote...when you find this info to be correct.

good luck!!!

Tour v 2 , it doesnt show the actual yardage and I didn't try i

Make sure the battery is good. (Go to a radioshack and have them measure the voltage). It should be 3.1 to 3.2 volts. The reflectivity of objects being measured is a factor. Lighter colors reflect better than darker colors. Larger objects reflect better than small ones. License plates, highway signs are very reflective. You should be able to hit one of those from more than 700 yards away. Make sure the Pinseeker mode is on and try.....(touch the mode button and the flag comes up on the screen) Don't hold the mode button down for more than 5 sec or you will switch the unit to meters instead of yards.

Won't range even after reset

Well after going through the reset procedure (holding both buttons down for 30 seconds) the unit didn't appear to be working. Being somewhat new to the proper use of this device it appears that it might be sensitive to low light conditions or certain objects. After playing with it more I'm now able to get it to work but there are still certain conditions where it won't give me a reading.

Nikon 440 pro staff range finder wont read distance

I just got mine to work. It was doing the same thing. I guess I re-set it. I figured there had to be some way to re-set it. So I pushed the mode button and the power button simultaneously for 30 second. Then it worked! Wooptidoo :)
