Here is what I could come up with:

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.

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

SOURCE: 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.

Which is a good rangefinder for rifle hunting?


The attractive vertical design of the Bushnell G-Force DX is a combination of high technology integrated with some features in demand that is noticed on different Bushnell models also having a 6x magnification that can be utilized both for bowhunting and rifle hunting.
Fully Loaded
Display - The Bushnell G-Force DX is featured with VDT (Vivid Display Technology). Its red screen display has incompatible with the black screen display which is targeted for their budget customers. The settings for the intensity of red display is manually adjustable to one out of four preference settings. These brightness settings aid the user to adjust with the reticle and give a visual record or display of the output from the device of their preference under any condition of lighting.
MOA and MIL - The G-Force DX displays the readings about angle indemnified relics in mil or moa and the holdover in an inch or cm when the Rifle mode is turned on. Users can set the relics to measure in an inch, moa or mil when the ranging requires in yards. Again, users can set the program to show holdover data in Moa, MIL or cm.
Angle Compensated Readings - Some of the older versions of Bushnell rangefinders displayed the view distance in line or dots at the time of Bow or Rifle mode. Next, the device displays the shooting angle and extends the number. When in Bow mode, the G-Force DX provides the compensated angle range in yardage. Otherwise, it gives the relics information when in the Rifle mode. But, the newer version of the Bushnell displays the readings of site distance at first, then it displays the shooting angle beneath the screen for not more than one second and a half before disappearing from the screen. Eventually, the device provides an important information about angle compensation.
ESP 2 - The G-Force DX rangefinder is featured with the second generation extreme speed precision processor offers precise distance measuring advantage and boosted with speed. The device can provide up to 1/2-yard accuracy out to 199 yards and 1/10-yard display precision out of 125 yards.
Housing - The Bushnell G-Force DX is coating rubberized for easy grip with a metal housing. The length of the metal housing is 4 inches, thickness 1.3-inch and height 3-inch which is a compact design of the rangefinders. This dimension of the G-Force DX allowing it to give a relatively low weight of 8oz.
Range - The Bushnell G-Force DX is a vertical-style rangefinder used for long range shooting and the maximum range of the rangefinder is 1300 yards on highly reflective objects. An expected reading on trees under good conditions is up to 900 yards where the same on deer is maximum 600 yards. But, the flat style Bushnell 1600 Elite is the right one for the users requiring more ranging power.
Legend Legacy
The new G-Force DX is developed from Bushnell's previous G-Force 1300 hundred design. Although this model is a new design, it had to leave backward many wanted features of the Bushnell Legend 1200 version. The new Bushnell G-Force DX is a featured with a Bow Mode, Rifle Mode, and Regular Mode same as its forerunner. Another feature is the VSI (Variable Sight-in) that adds versatility in shooting with the rangefinders set with integrated ballistics charts. At last, the popular Brush and Bullseye targets priority settings has added a new dimension into the new G-Force DX.
Modes
Rifle Mode - By selecting the Rifle mode, users can pick a ranging sight that they prefer. After that, they had to select from a ballistic chart that closely matches the flight path of their bullets holdover. Then the rifle icon will appear at the left-top of the screen confirming that the device is in rifle mood. After ranging the target, the line of sight yardage will appear on the display. The device will display underneath the shooting angle which will be disappeared within a second and a half, and at last, it will display a holdover measurement in any unit of cm, inches, MIL, or MOA
Regular Mode - In this mode, the user will get a line or dot of distance view in yardage from the target and it will facilitate the users in no other ways. That means, the indemnified angle in yardage, he relics data or the shooting angle - nothing can be calculated or displayed.

Which is the best golf laser range finder?


Bushnell Scout DX Rangefinder is a good one for golf.
It's a fantastic rangefinder.
It offers some amazing feature and specification like...
  • 6x magnification.
  • Range between 5-1000 yards.
  • 3-volt CR2 Battery.
  • Rangefinder Accuracy 5 yards.
The Bushnell Scout DX Rangefinder will help you to pick from 3 different user modes by pressing the Mode button at the left side of the unit. First is the usual mode which can be used for most purposes up to 1000 meters and works well towards the pretty reflective surface.
When turned on, the Scout 1000 Laser Rangefinder liquid crystal display (LCD) will directly display icons like the bow and rifle mode. The bow mode will provide you with true horizontal distances from 5-99yd away, depending on the angle. The rifle mode, however, will permit you to get the angle and drop/holdover of your shot to the target from 100-800yd.

I can't get it to bow or rifle mode


Look on the back of the rangefinder......Its a very small strip that has the model number, serial number, and date of manufacture. If it sez.....20-1932 you have a "bow and rifle" rangefinder.....!!!! If it doesn't have model number 201932. You don't have that capability. Read your manual, check the unit for the model type.
Part 2: Try holding down the "FIRE BUTTON" for more than 5 seconds....see if the the "setup" comes across the display screen........(read the manual) The unit should have came with a ballistic disk. If you don't have one call Bushnell and get one. (800.423.3537) It has a lot of good info on it.

Good Luck to you David!!!

Error code er6


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.
