Question about Leupold RX-IV Rangefinder

1 Answer

It isn't really much more I can say: before it was put on a shelf in the garage it was working fine. 8-12 months later it did not. No visable damages and looks brand new - no scratches, marks, oxidization, have not been wet (but it is water proof). Tried another battery and even measured the voltage on both bateries - all ok, but still dead. It has been cold out there (we had about -30C this winter) but when I tried it, the temp was more moderate.

AllI can suggest is that maybe the battery terminals inside the rangefinder are slightly oxidized, and may need a good cleaning. Other than that, you could be having an oxidation problem with the contacts of a switch inside the camera, which will be challenging to get to, as you know. A good contact spray that doesn't harm plastics might help, if you can get to the components. Otherwise, you may have to contact Leopold support (I couldn't find a support center on the net, so refer to your manual that came with it).
Wish I had more, but that's allI can think of, but hope it helps.

I hope you have not opened it up. Be sure the contacts in the battery compartment are clean. Leave the new battery in for a few days and keep turning it on/off. It may take a bit to fire up the CMOS which losses its memory with out power. Hope this Helps.

Does you garage door opener have a fuse or CB - would be close to input line? Some do and some don't, but if you have power at the outlet, it is worth checking for. If there isn't you will need a multimeter to troubleshoot the problem.

Pull the case off, check the voltage level at the first point (this will tell you that the cord is okay). Then just follow the voltage, until you lose it. The assembly you lost it at is probably bad.

BUT sometimes it is really hard to find parts for the older garage door openers and you end up replaceing with a new one.

Mounted keypad will not open garage door when I enter the code

Make sure the battery is good. It isn't uncommon to get one that has been on the shelf for a long period. If you still have the same problem and your hand remotes work okay you keypad is bad.

Hi there. I have a Chamberlain Whisper Drive

I just had that problem this morning and the cause was that the springs that help hold the weight of the garage door were broken. This caused the garage door opener to raise the garage door a fe inches and then drop again. We called in a professional and $200 later we had new springs and everything works fine now.

I had a similar problem, and took it to an authorized repair shop(under warranty), the kept it six months, and JVC finally admitted there are solder connections with that model, and six months later, we got a new unit. I will buy Sony next time
