I have the same problem from 40 yrds out. nikon wants $150 + 12.50 shipping.
instead I bought a bushnell scout 1000. with the $50 rebate it cost $169 with a
2year warranty(till 12/10) . The nikon was 1 month out of warrany.
Its works great.
i will never buy anything nikon again.

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!!

I purchased a new LR 559 Callaway golf rangefinder from a QVC auction. The problem with it is it isnt even close to accurate. I have a measured archery range back to 65 yards and the rangefinder is way off...


its a piece of ****, that happens when you arder through qvc. When you arder electronic devices for weights or measurements, first you must know exactly what you are looking at, make, model, and series,,, then read all of the reviews you can,, then go to a pro store-- (like our shop we are a pro archery shop) we refuse to work on peoples bows they bring in that they bought online, because half the time they recieved something that they did not order, they dont look like they did in the picture that the seller posted... always read reviews and ask the professionals.... I would return the item even if it was an auction, if you cant return it then ebay it-- but be honest when you post descriptions of the item, and the problems that you may be experiencing, trust me the buyers will appreciate it...

Nikon laser 500G range finder I can not get reads above 30 or 50


On my laser 500 G I held both buttons down together for a short time and it began reading again. See if that works with yours.

Specifications
  • Measurement Range 11-550 yds
  • Increment Reading 0.5/1 yds
  • Magnification 6x
  • Angular Field of View (Real)
  • Angular Field of View (Apparent) 34.9°

  • Eye Relief 18mm
  • Diopter Adjustment +/-4°
  • Power Source 1 CR2 Lithium Battery

  • Objective Diameter 21mm
  • Exit Pupil 3.5mm

    ---
I did not read that there is a recalibration for the unit, although a consumer might expect that. Has it ever been dropped to your knowledge?

The above link has contact information for service of the unit via telephone numbers.

I have a Nikon rangefinder 350G. I bought it last year. I find the reading is getting less sensitive comparing when it was brand new. It is hard to get reading when it is as far as 120 yards and more....


Push mode and power button together and hold down for 30 seconds to reset before you send it in for alignment repair. The reset might work and save you $$$.

Dropped rangefinder. laser works, can't focus


Check the eyepiece....there should be a adjustable ring. Twist it slightly and see if it moves.
tell me if that helped.
