Basic operation of the 50/2 mini rangefinder

look through view finder and see the two images and turn wheel til it becomes one and then look at wheel to see the distance. this is a pretty accurate piece of equipment. classic range finder and will be worth some money someday if in good shape.

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!!!!

Will not pick up the flag over 150 yards.

You need an alignment. The transmitter and receiver are not pointing at the same spot. The farther the distance the bigger the gap between the two. Dropping the rangefinder and vibration are killers to Pinseekers. Bushnell will fix ya.....

Bushnell Laser Range Finder

you have it on the meters setting not the yards setting. hold the scan button down for three seconds or longer and it will revert to the other form. a meter is nearly 10% longer than a yard.

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 :)

Do not know how to operate

First, be sure and focus the eyepiece on what you desire to measure distance to. Begin the measurement with the range dial set to minimum. Slowly tury the dial until the grey-blue image and the yellow image overlap each other. Read the measurement. If you suspect it is in error, you can calibrate the 400 or 1000 or 1200 by turning the screw slot within the range dial using an object you know the distance to. If the two images are off in the vertical direction, there's a screw below the range finder to adjust that. Turn it very little. Regarding the model 610, mostly the same except to calibrate it, merely spread the adjustment knob apart (spring loaded) and turn the part of it nearest your eyes so the yardage matches the distance.

Range finder does not register distance 99.9% of the time

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.
