Nikon Laser 800 Rangefinder

I've had my Nikon Laser 800 rangefinder for just over a year and loved it........ That is until it quit working a couple weeks ago. When you push the button to find a range it does nothing. At first I though...... Oh its just a battery so I replaced the battery and it still did the same thing. So....... I sent it in to Nikon for repairs. They sent me an estimate for $311.00. This is poor customer service to me. First of all the range finder should last more than a year and secondly the should be able to fix it for less than I can buy a new one. I can buy an new one for $300.00. I feel ripped off. Is there someone else that can fix the rangefinder for me? TIA Loren

    It sounds like I am having the same problem as everyone else. I have had my rangefinder 800 for somewhere around a year and it just quit working. Once in a while it will pop up something like 950 yards but only once in a while. The rest of the time it registers nothing. I guess I could send it in but it sounds like I am wasting my time. This is very disappointing. It sounds like they have a problem and are doing nothing about it.

    I was able to fix my range finder. The battery wasn't making contact. I removed it and hooked the spring contact in the bottom and stretched it up so it was making contact with the battery. It's been working ever since. To bad I didn't figure out how to fix it before I bought a new one.

    I fixed mine. The battery was lose. I had to stretch out the spring under the battery so it would make contact. It's been working great every since. Too bad I didn't figure this out before I bought a new one.

I had the same issue with my Nikon Laser 800 rangefinder. I sent it in and they wanted $311.00 to fix it so I bought a new one for $300.00 off EBAY. Today I was missing around with my old rangefinder and noticed after I put the battery in I could hear something loose in the rangefinder. There is a little metal tang in the bottom where the battery goes that holds tension on the battery that was bent down. I bent it back up about 3/16" and put the battery back in, now it works fine.
