Question about Bushnell Elite 20-5100 Rangefinder

1 Answer

Bushnell Elite 1500 Rangefinder has lost focus

It only focuses at about 10 yards now. I use it for golf only. It has not gotten wet nor has been mishandled. It will still give a yardage for a target, but it is hard to fix on the target because it is not in focus.

There is a ring below the eyepiece that is the focus......
Dont drop it and keep away from vibration. This will keep it in alignment. You will notice that if its been dropped it won't lock in on targets greater than 150 yards. A lot of players put the rangefinder in the compartment in the golf cart and the unit bounces around a lot. This practice just DECREASES the effective range. Alignment will be needed ($$)

Pinseeker 1500 has trouble picking up flags over 100 yards away


The unit needs an alignment. Vibration and dropping the unit is the number one killer of rangefinders.....After a while of using them, (bouncing around in golf carts, cup holders, dropping them on the cart path, or the ground) small prisms start to move inside and decrease the units effective range.... (only able to hit a target at about 150 yards or less) People that use these type of instruments have to realize that the laser beam is the straightest line in the history of man!!!. Alignment is crucial!!!

Alignment is due. For all you players that think its okay to take off the eyepiece cap.....(bad idea) This is why you see oily looking spots or black spots in the view. Direct sunlight will be magnified and burn the surface of the LCD. Bushnell is good about warranties but, if you take it apart...the warranty is void!!!! So if its 2 years old or less.....(send a copy of the proof of purchase) .send it to them. If you have sunlight burns already...this won't effect the performance of the unit. Wait till something else is wrong.

mr tech geek Rate me if you can...or find out this is the truth!!!!

Bushnell 400 rangefinder won't show yardage stuck on 888


If the unit is stuck on 1888 the circuit board inside has lost its programming. Sounds like its about 10+ years old. Bushnell doesn't work on them anymore. If you use it for hunting I would suggest the Scout 1000 with ARC compensation, if you use it for golf look at the Medalist. You can see them both at bushnell.com

The hunting rangefinder will run about 250 bucks
The golf rangefinder will run about 220 bucks.

Both use advanced target locking systems.

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.....

What should focus point be?


For the model you have (20-1916) I would use the flag. Larger target and soon to be reflective. When on the green I would aim at the hole. Let me know if this helps

All these units need an alignment....Vibration and dropping are slow death to Pinseekers.

Will not give distances over 130 yards


According to Bushnell, the optical lense can come out of alignment. This can happen due to the unit getting bounced around during transport, shipping, in the golf cart etc... (If you gently drop it on the grass while trying hit your shot...)

The mis-alignment causes the longer distances to not work.

Bushnell suggest you send the unit in for re-alignment. The product comes with 2 year warranty and will cost only $10 of return in most cases to get it fixed. It takes about 3 to 6 weeks to complete the process.
