Questions & Answers
My nikon archers choice just recently started
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!!!
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.
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!!
Why is my archers choice
I "thought" my Nikon Archer's Choice was draining batteries, erratic behavior, only top charged batteries would work, ouch. Discovered that the battery compartment connection was the problem (after going through several batteries!). I first put a 1/8 th inch spacer between the battery and the compartment cap and found it worked fine. Looked in the bottom and there is a gizzmo on the + terminal post, took that off so that better contact could be made, plus cut away excess plastic on + side of battery and now it's terrific! Always works, battery lasts forever. May or may not fix your problem, but certainly fixed mine!
Wont measure distance
Must see if the battery is in correct polarity and is set right . If power comes without any measurement, thenit is possible that the laser is not active , the beam is not readback , the processing is faulty for the return signal.
Might have the main board processor faulty.
Is the Nikon Prostaff 3 Rangefinder good for the golfer?

You would obviously expect something superior from Nikon. Well, this renowned company will not disappoint you. They have maintained their expert quality, but that does not make the product expensive. Nikon Laser Rangefinder gives you a crystal-clear image at a very low price.
With the launch of Nikon Prostaff 3, two categories of rangefinder seekers have got something to rely on for their ranging needs.

Many hobbyists and professionals are getting keen on using rangefinders. It enables hunters and golfers to have a smooth field of view. It gives you enough range and brightness for clear sight. Nikon Prostaff 3 Laser Rangefinder has created some buzz among outdoor lovers. The multicolored display is adequately bright and able to show distances in meters and yards.
There is a continuous measurement mode that facilitates multiple measurements without requiring users to make any additional adjustments each time they switch targets. This mode helps users to gauge the accurate distance between particular objects and their current positions.
The built-in slope compensation deals with the changes in slope heights almost accurately. Making precise measurements at different angles up to 89 degrees becomes a breeze.

Sounds like internal fungus in the balsam. If it does not affect their use, I should ignore it.
