Bushnell 1500 Pinseeker Tournament Edition optics problem

I have a Bushnell 1500 Pinseeker Tournament Edition that is a great device. Unfortunately, mine appears to have developed something on one of the interior lenses or viewing rings that looks suspiciously like bacteria or mold, light yellow and translucent on the one hand, and a black oval spot with a red center on the other. While neither is in the center of the viewfinder, I am looking for disassembly instructions in order to clean the interior lenses.

This is what happens to Pinseekers when the eyepiece cap in not used. Sunlight is focused through the lens right on the surface of the Liquid Crystal Display.(LCD) The heat generated burns into the surface of the display. The black spot happens when the pinseeker was left pointing skyward, when the sun is high, for a hour or so. The LCD can be replaced. I would have it aligned if it needs it. Mail it in to bushnell for repairs. mtg

Bushnell 1500 Tournament edition No Reading


Bumps and bruises add up.....sounds like its out of alignment. Make sure it is not reading in meters "M'"instead yards:"Y" then, if it will hit a target only at about 150-200 yards....it needs an alignment.

About 50 bucks for align, 15 bucks for LCD if you have those oily looking swiggles. ( or black, brown etc). All other general maintenace is 15. Shipping and handling cost 10.

No yardage displayed


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.

Bushnell 1500 with slope is now illegal - any way of fixing it?


Bye the hunter's edition. It has the same features but the slope is called arc and the pinseeker is a target. The target works the same as the pin, except it was desighned for small game but it is the same unit. The slope is called arc and is used for bow hunting and ammo drop in inches per yard.
