I just got off the phone with a tech at Bushnell Canada and they say it stands for Low Battery.

Perhaps worth noting that they suggest using a high quality alkaline battery as opposed to an heavy duty battery.

Also...I wonder how many people use 9volt batteries anymore...and how long the ones we're buying have been sitting on the shelf...ya know?

E31 error message on screen of pinseeker 1500 bushnell


E31 is a programming error code. Most of the time this comes from using non-alkaline batteries or from letting a battery die in the unit. "lob" means low battery condition. In these rangefinders "lob" will show up with a new non-alkaline battery installed. Non-alkaline batteries just don't generate enough current for the laser to operate properly. Reprogramming costs about 20 bucks, if it needs an alignment (won't hit a flag or target at 200+ yards >50 bucks<) Oily looking spots in the display are from not using the eyepiece cap and direct sunlight damages the LCD. (15bucks) The address for repair is:

Bushnell Repair Center
8500 Marshall Drive
Lenexa, KS 66214

800.423.3537
Send a problem statement, your phone number, and $10 for return shipping.

Good Luck to you!!!!!

LOB ...what does it mean ????


LoB =Low Battery condition

This will happen will new heavy duty batteries also. They don't generate enough current to operate the laser properly. Use alkaline batteries only. (pg.4-para 2 of the manual)

PINSEEKER 1500 W/SLOPE


Mine was doing this too, although I can't officially confirm it from anyone in "the know". I guessed this mean't "low on battery", I replaced the battery and the flashing lob went away.
