SOURCE: why is my archers choice

I "thought" my Nikon Archer's Choice was draining batteries, erratic behavior, only top charged batteries would work, ouch. Discovered that the battery compartment connection was the problem (after going through several batteries!). I first put a 1/8 th inch spacer between the battery and the compartment cap and found it worked fine. Looked in the bottom and there is a gizzmo on the + terminal post, took that off so that better contact could be made, plus cut away excess plastic on + side of battery and now it's terrific! Always works, battery lasts forever. May or may not fix your problem, but certainly fixed mine!

My nikon archers choice just recently started acting up it wont range any further than about 45 yards ive tried a new battery ive also tried cleaning the contacts as well as resetting it with no luck...


Hi,

The unit needs an alignment. Vibration and dropping the unit is the number one killer of rangefinders.....After a while of using them, (bouncing around in golf carts, cup holders, dropping them on the cart path, or the ground) small prisms start to move inside and decrease the units effective range.... (only able to hit a target at about 150 yards or less) People that use these type of instruments have to realize that the laser beam is the straightest line in the history of man!!!. Alignment is crucial!!!

Alignment is due. For all you players that think its okay to take off the eyepiece cap.....(bad idea) This is why you see oily looking spots or black spots in the view. Direct sunlight will be magnified and burn the surface of the LCD. Nikon is good about warranties but, if you take it apart...the warranty is void!!!! So if its 2 years old or less.....(send a copy of the proof of purchase) .send it to them. If you have sunlight burns already...this won't effect the performance of the unit. Wait till something else is wrong.

THE COST..... $50 for alignment, $15 for LCD, $40 for newer eyepiece that helps deflect direct sunlight (will not prevent thermal burns but, protects for longer periods of time before damage happens) $15 for clean and adjusting.

Unfortunately, there are no recalls for the same.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

MY NIKON 550 RANGE FINDER WONT LOCK ON AFTER 40 YARDS IVE TRIED SEVERAL NEW BATTERYS


Same problem. Conclusion: just because it has the NIKON name does not mean it is not a piece of Chinese junk.

Wont measure distance


Must see if the battery is in correct polarity and is set right . If power comes without any measurement, thenit is possible that the laser is not active , the beam is not readback , the processing is faulty for the return signal.
Might have the main board processor faulty.

Nikon 440 pro staff range finder wont read distance


I just got mine to work. It was doing the same thing. I guess I re-set it. I figured there had to be some way to re-set it. So I pushed the mode button and the power button simultaneously for 30 second. Then it worked! Wooptidoo :)
