You could do a bit of research as i can't remember the math's from my college days, but, it is possible to calculate the distance something travels by using its rate of descent against the time it takes to reach the ground, for instance, if gravity is measured at 9.81N/m per sec squared, then an object must speed up at the same rate from standstil every time unless the earths gravitational pull changed. If you then timed how long it takes to hit the ground you could do a simple calculation offsetting the rate of descent against time which would then give your distance. The calculation is - distance = speed x time, but you would need to factor in the the rate of change in the speed of the object from standstill to finish which is the bit i can't remember.

the electronic sensor eyes being off are the most common cause of this.

They need to be pointed at each other so they can "see" each other.

Commonly, the units have a light on them that will illuminate when they can see the other half of the unit on the the other side.

Also check the terminals that the sensors connect to, and make sure that they are connected.

Use a second measuring tool and compare the results, or you can measure a known size or length (floor tiles for example)and check the reading you get.

You have acouple of options

You can buy a measuring tool that doesn't have a size limit or has a very high size limit, you can check around to find one that will suit your needs.

You can measure the till the end of you measuring tool, mark the spot where it ends, and make another measuerment from that spot.

Another option is to take a long piece of string, and run it between the two points you want to measure, Cut the rope exactly between the two points, and later you can measure it, section by section, this is a lot of work!

I'm sure that these aren't all the possible methods, I think that folks around here might add a few.

Good luck

there is an acrylic post inside that directs a light beam to several different places so when the light beam is broken then it tells other parts that the tape is loaded this could be broken off or if the tape broke off inside a piece could be wrapped around a capstan or drive post causing the machine to think it is at the end of the tape and to turn itself off.

Hi, Its sound like your compressor is not turned on. Make sure your compressor is plug in, and the (on and off) switch is turned on. Check the pressure gage to see what psi you have. You need at lease 90psi. If you don't have that much pressure, There should be an adjusting knob below the gage. Turn the knob until you get the proper psi.

If this doesn’t work for you, please write back. Thanks,

Press the red button - (distance) you will see a red dot on the wall you are measuring - then you will hear a beep - release the button and read the display - the measurement should be displayed and accurate within a quarter inch.

Most stud finders have a sensitivity adjustment that should be carefully adjusted per instruction manual before use.
Failure to do this results in erroneous indications.

If you have adjusted exactly per the instructions with the same result the unit is probably faulty.
