Re: 8x magnification

The RX series of range finders are not of the optic quality that other Leupold optics are. I have used my RX IV in place of my binoculars, but it is not adequate for glassing for game full time. The rangefinding abilities left a lot to be desired for me. As long a the object was under 450 yards, it worked fine. Past that was somewhat difficult to get a range at times. Hope this helps.

Leuplod rx111 rangefinder

This problem is caused by the 'step' inside the battery cover which prohibits the tip of the battery from contacting the nipple inside the cover. I fitted a thin piece of aluminium strip (20thou) and the rangefinder now works perfectly. Most brands of CR2 battery now have higher sides which shield the tip - bad design.

I got a new battery but my leupold rx111 still won`t show anything. Are they prone to quit or I guess it could be a faulty battery.

If the battery you changed is sure you format it well and charge it max..if it is a rechargeable one ..and if it isn't rechargeable sure it is new..and a good quality ..
This devices also have an internal battery for settings and such ..and if it was a long time without may have a faulty internal battery that can affect the display of the readings ..and all ...
Consult the manual to see what kinda internal battery it has..and change that too ..(you have to open it for that ..and the model of the battery it will be written on it ..

I purchased a new LR 559 Callaway golf rangefinder from a QVC auction. The problem with it is it isnt even close to accurate. I have a measured archery range back to 65 yards and the rangefinder is way off...

its a piece of ****, that happens when you arder through qvc. When you arder electronic devices for weights or measurements, first you must know exactly what you are looking at, make, model, and series,,, then read all of the reviews you can,, then go to a pro store-- (like our shop we are a pro archery shop) we refuse to work on peoples bows they bring in that they bought online, because half the time they recieved something that they did not order, they dont look like they did in the picture that the seller posted... always read reviews and ask the professionals.... I would return the item even if it was an auction, if you cant return it then ebay it-- but be honest when you post descriptions of the item, and the problems that you may be experiencing, trust me the buyers will appreciate it...

Measurement is off approx. 4' to 5'. Any way to re-calibrate to have accurate measurements?

I didn't find the Prostaff laser 440 rangefinder on the website for, but I did find the 550 model. The specs follow:
  • Measurement Range 11-550 yds
  • Increment Reading 0.5/1 yds
  • Magnification 6x
  • Angular Field of View (Real)
  • Angular Field of View (Apparent) 34.9°
  • Viewfinder Display meters/yards
  • Eye Relief 18mm
  • Diopter Adjustment +/-4°
  • Power Source 1 CR2 Lithium Battery
  • Size (Length x Width x Height) 5.1 x 1.5 x 2.7 in
  • Weight w/o Batteries 6.3 oz
  • Objective Diameter 21mm
  • Exit Pupil 3.5mm
  • Supplied Accessories CR2 lithium battery.
I did not read that there is a recalibration for the unit, although a consumer might expect that. Has it ever been dropped to your knowledge?

The above link has contact information for service of the unit via telephone numbers.

Will not turn on at all.

your unit has a broken battery holder. The batttery is not touching the contacts. When you dropped it you more than likely knocked the unit out of alignment also. Send it in to Bushnell for repairs
