Question about Bushnell Yardage Pro Tour XL Rangefinder

1 Answer

From one day to the next-all of a sudden, when I press the range finder button, the cross hairs and everything fades away. I have changed the battery with 2 different ones. If you let the unit set for a few days, you can press the button and all the functions appear, but then press again and everything fades away.

Hi this sounds to me like an internal power supply problem, I would say that what happens is that the main filter capacitor inside the power supply is charging up, over the time left alone, then that is enough to "Power it briefly" when first turned ON, however, when a full draw is further required, the power supply fails, or "Sags" as "we' say..It may also be the voltage regulator that is involved too.
What to do, well in reality there is little DIY that can be done on such a delicate and sophisticated instrument. So one has little alternative, if there is a view to a repair, other than contacting Bushnell, and asking them "What to do?" either take it to a recommended servicing center, or send back to them? Now if worried about costings, then please simply first ask for a "Quote" as to the type of and cost of any prospective repairs, this way at least you can make an informed decision, as to what to do repair or replace?


First though, have you tried Alkaline heavy duty batteries... any? HD batteries, even NiMH, Ni-cads? just to make sure there is no battery aspect to the whole thing as i have had "Battery" problems many many times at my shop, all batteries are NOT created equal, once i had to go through many batteries before i found "Proper" ones that worked even though the others were ostensibly "New". So make sure.

I have a tasco scope that has a range finder cross hairs in it and i was wondering if it was made for a 300 weatherby mag?


It will work for any rifle with an appropriate ring set. The range finder markings will fall at different ranges depending on the speed of your bullet. You will have to test or use a balistic calculator to find out these yardages.

How do you access the convergence calibration menu on a RCA P52926 Rear Projection TV


Hello
To access the convergence calibration:

Press the MENU button on the remote.

2. Press 3 to select the Screen option.

3. Press 4 to select the Adjust Projection TV option.

4. Press 4 to select the Advanced Convergence option (the
Advanced Convergence screen appears).

The green pattern is fixed. The red and blue patterns are adjusted to

the green pattern. The Red Convergence appears first by default.

5. Colored cross-hairs show the current adjustment position on the

grid. To move the cross-hairs to a different position, use the

CH+/- buttons on the remote to move the cross-hair highlight up

and down, and the VOL+/- buttons to move it right and left.

6. Use the arrow buttons to adjust the red pattern. Each press of

the arrow button makes a slight adjustment from the center of

the cross-hairs - you can press and hold the desired arrow

button to make a faster adjustment, and then make fine

adjustments with single presses of the arrow button.

7. Press the INFO button to switch to Blue convergence and follow

the steps above to adjust the blue pattern.

8. Press OK to exit. You will be asked if you want to save the
adjustments

Yes Saves adjustments.

No Returns to the Advanced Convergence screen allowing

further adjustments.
Clear Exits screen without making any changes

Note: Before you use the advanced convergence feature, you must
complete the previous steps to align the tubes

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object using the eyepiece mentioned above.

Line up the small finder scope with the main tube-- point the scope at the top of a distant telephone pole or church steeple.

Without moving the scope, line up the cross-hairs in the finder scope with the same object. Once this is lined up you can use the small finder scope to locate objects in the sky.

How do you use the range finder on your


You have to sight it in and then insert the ring for the specific ammunition and distance you are using. From then point on, you can dial in the distance and the cross hairs will be right on.
It isn't an actual range finder, it's a bullet drop compensator.

I believe the second cross hair in your scope relates to an 18 inch dimension, or that of a deer. When you adj the wire to the body of a deer, it will be the distance, I'm not sure if you have to do the math, or the scope does it for you. Some scopes, you had to figure the hold over by the distance in the scope. others would be set to shoot at that distance. I would ave to look that one for you to be sure, but that is the idea. Hope this helps.

The icons are out of sync.


Have a sewing machine needle handy and turn the machine off.

With your left hand, press and hold /StartStop, Up/Down and reverse while switching on the machine. The screen should display little cross hairs. Using the BLUNT end of the needle NOT THE TIP, press the exact center of the cross hairs. Continue a the cross hairs will change positions on the screen. When finished, switch machine off, wait five seconds and switch back on.

Screen freezes and display faints


Hopefully the usb adapter just confused the battery. Did you use it this time or a regular plug? Its always best to fully discharge a battery and fully recharge it for the next use. They will lose life and malfunction otherwise. Glad you've had some luck, hopefully it will work just fine now.

You must align the finder scope with the main telescope tube--

During the daytime look at something far away in the main scope-- without moving the scope center the cross hairs on the finder scope.

Casio Pocket Viewer PV-S400Plus not working


When batteries are to be replace you must move the switch on the back cover to "replace batteries". After you replace the batteries, you must move the switch back to "normal operation". The unit will then want you to touch the dots in the cross hairs and then ask you to adjust contrast. Try replacing the batteries again with a fresh pair. If this does not work, open the cover with the switch in the "replace batteries" position and use your stylus to press the "P" button underneath the battery cover and try again. If this fails, try resetting the unit.
