As far as I know, you point it at something a distance away and press the power button. They're a very simple device but will likely not work indoors or over very short ranges.

If you're still having problems with it, it should still be under warranty, I would return it to the store immediately. If you have any issues with the store staff, do not leave the device with them and contact Nikon directly for help with warranty. You should never have issues with a product out of the box.

I had the same issue with my Nikon Laser 800 rangefinder. I sent it in and they wanted $311.00 to fix it so I bought a new one for $300.00 off EBAY. Today I was missing around with my old rangefinder and noticed after I put the battery in I could hear something loose in the rangefinder. There is a little metal tang in the bottom where the battery goes that holds tension on the battery that was bent down. I bent it back up about 3/16" and put the battery back in, now it works fine.

Purchased the Landscape Laser Lights for Christmas.I cant get the remote to work when I'm close to it.Turnedon with remote but will not turn off or change.AmIdoing something wrong-battery tested good.


Make sure the receiver window on the unit is not blocked. Even a partial blockage can negatively affect the communication between the unit and the remote. Clean both windows, the one on the remote and the one on the unit. Don't use products but instead, some mild soap and water on a microfiber cloth.

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 :)

there is a silver quarter sized screw out cover on the battery compartment.  It has a slot so you can use a coin or screwdriver to remove the cover.
