Question about Bushnell PinSeeker 1500 Tournament Edition Laser Rangefinder

New batteries, but does not show yardage when on

I have purchased new batteries. I focus on the pin, or other objects, but it apparently does not read the range. Not sure if it is laser not working or something else.

    I am sure the battery is working because the unit will focus on the object. It is a bushnell pinseeker 1500, which shows distance and slope of object. When I press the buttons, the circle appears on the screen for me to focus on the object I want distance to. This is why I think the battery is good.

    It appears to be working by taking out battery and resetting. appreciate

My RB800C seems to have a battery problem...seems to always show low battery power and will give a yardage reading or two before refusing to work again. This AM I put a new battery in it and again it...

I struggled to work out what was going on with mine (I had the same problem) and concluded that it was either an issue with the electronics, which was beyond my skills to fix, or something much simpler. We all tend to assume the more complicated answer, so I focused on the very thin and nasty spring inside the battery housing cap. I wondered if that spring was deforming in some way and causing a short circuit. So a couple of months ago I unscrewed the two tiny retaining screws that hold the plate on which the spring sits, took the plate out, removed the spring, and replaced it with a much thicker, gold plated spring taken from a small flashlight I no longer had a use for. I soldered the spring into location on the plate, returned the plate to the battery housing cap, and inserted a new battery. Two months later, the battery is still showing full power.

I have the Bushnell yardage pro 450. It has a new battery and will not show yardage or it sometimes flutters the number but you can not read it. Sometimes it will show partial numbers!

I went to another website and read the reviews of other owners of Bushnell products, this is a common problem from Bushnell products. The fix is to buy another or try to get them to replace it, they should recall everyone of them and give refunds or new rangefinders. I found all this out for free, thank you very much!!!

Digital range reading doesn't show clearly

It needs an alignment... IF not all the LCD segments are not working (hold down the power button) it will need more than likely a alignment and lcd. Hurry, they are starting not to do this service.(new models coming in)

Get in touch with them.........HURRY

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.
