5/26/09 I spoke with Bushnell technical support today and they informed me that this error "Er6" means the unit can not repaired. They said this is one of their oldest models and that they don't even have parts for it anymore. They did offer to have me send the old unit into their Returns department in Kansas, and in return for sending them the old/broken unit, they will send me an offer to buy one of their new units at a highly discounted rate. Not a bad trade I guess.

There is no code list available, so check these things:
1) Low battery, replace if necessary 2) You are trying to measure an object that is too close, try a more diatant object 3) You are not holding the rangefinder steady and have not gotten a reading off the target. Try an easier, larger, more reflective target as a check. 4) You have an electrical problem requiring repair.
If you are still getting an error, contact Bushnell at 1-800-221-9035 for instructions.
ER6 means the unit has lost it's programming. Bushnell doesn't repair these anymore. Go to bushnell.com and find a unit that you like. Call 800.423.3537 and they will offer you 30-40% off on a new one for your old one.
The rangefinder is out of alignment. Vibration, dropping these units make small mirrors inside move slightly. Over time the receiver cannot see what the transmitter puts out. Bushnell can fix, 4-5 weeks w/o unit.
Take the nice cover and neck strap off rangefinder to use on another item. Next use the rangefinder for hammer. boat anchor, etc. Seriously though the problem occurs often in the Bushnell rangefinders and it cost more to fix than to replace with a better brand. A $179.00 original cost rangefinder cost $10.00 to ship back to Bushnell and another $235.00 for repair of a non specified problem for a grand total of $245.00. I consider this a rip off from Bushnell.
I have the same problem, and sent my unit to Bushnell for repair. They were unable to repair it, stated "obsolete" and "repair parts unavailable" and sent it back to me.
Would you be interested in selling me your dead unit for parts for a few bucks? Thanks.
