Question about Bushnell Medalist Rangefinder

Bushnell medalist pinseeker rangerfinder

When I range an object the display has LOB across the bottom. I have changed modes several times as well as battery but cannot get rid of LOB display. The rangefinder still works but the LOB is a nuisance.

Thanks Jim Hodge

    Same problem. Anyone have an answer?

    I also get the LoB indicator even though I put in a new alkaline battery.

    The instruction book doesn't even mention the LoB indicator. I assume it means low battery?

You must use alkaline batteries only.....Heavy duty batteries dont generate enough current to power the laser properly...

E31 error message on screen of pinseeker 1500 bushnell


E31 is a programming error code. Most of the time this comes from using non-alkaline batteries or from letting a battery die in the unit. "lob" means low battery condition. In these rangefinders "lob" will show up with a new non-alkaline battery installed. Non-alkaline batteries just don't generate enough current for the laser to operate properly. Reprogramming costs about 20 bucks, if it needs an alignment (won't hit a flag or target at 200+ yards >50 bucks<) Oily looking spots in the display are from not using the eyepiece cap and direct sunlight damages the LCD. (15bucks) The address for repair is:

Bushnell Repair Center
8500 Marshall Drive
Lenexa, KS 66214

800.423.3537
Send a problem statement, your phone number, and $10 for return shipping.

Good Luck to you!!!!!

Bushnell Medalist stopped working


Clay,

It sounds like the 9volt battery connector has a broken wire. You maybe able to have it resoldered or send it to Bushnell for repair. If you take upon yourself to open the unit up....You could void your warranty. If it is under 2 years old from the date of purchase, its under warranty. Call Bushnell at 800.423.3537 and ask them. They might have you send it in and replace the unit with a new one.

I have a Bushnell Medalist Pinseeker golf laser rangefinder. I recently replaced the battery with a 9V Duracell Alkaline, and now the Pinseeker mode is not working (it will not sight different targets) and...


The "Pinseeker" mode is a automatic mode Sometimes it uses it, somtimes it doesn't. It is designed to recognize a vertical shaft. (Pin) Now IF you hold the power button down....you can see if all of the LCD segments are burning. If the segments fade out later in the game.... (bad LCD) Make sure the Pinseeker mode it on...(flag symbol on the left) Hit the button on the side if you need to. IF it still doesn't lock on to pins, it needs an alignment.

I have the yardage but the flag in the left side of scope doesnt appear (mode) and some lines are missing (--- Y)as well as the Y and the targeting O are faint.


If your Pinseeker Medalist (20-1354) is not showing all the digits in the display.....Return it quickly. You should have 2 years warranty. Look on that little narrow strip on the back. It will show the serial number and the date of manufacturer. (you got 2 years from the date of purchase) If you need to copy your receipt do so. They will fix it.....

Good luck and hurry!!!!

No yardage displayed


The rangefinder is out of alignment. Vibration, dropping these units make small mirrors inside move slightly. Over time the receiver cannot see what the transmitter puts out. Bushnell can fix, 4-5 weeks w/o unit.

LOB ...what does it mean ????


LoB =Low Battery condition

This will happen will new heavy duty batteries also. They don't generate enough current to operate the laser properly. Use alkaline batteries only. (pg.4-para 2 of the manual)

PINSEEKER 1500 W/SLOPE


Mine was doing this too, although I can't officially confirm it from anyone in "the know". I guessed this mean't "low on battery", I replaced the battery and the flashing lob went away.
