I had a similar problem the first couple of years I owned my unit. I took the battery out between uses and that avoided the problem. I also made sure that the case was tightly closed so no light gets into it when not in use. The problem is now gone.

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.
