    I am having the same problem. It won't read anything past 12 yards.

  • mtvista Nov 30, 2007

    Having same problem, no range in yds or metres, although the cross hair is there. Installed new battery and still no measurements.

    I'm having the same problem. My Nikon Laser440 works sometimes under 20yds., never beyond 20yds. anymore. It shows a full battery and is only 3 yrs. old and lightly used.

    My range finder will read on a good target to 85 yards, but no farther even if the target is a house!

  • whitetail_wi Oct 22, 2008

    Will turn on but will not give yardage.

    I replaced the battery TWICE on my Nikon Laser 440 and all it dos is show me the cross hair than instead off giving me the range it shows 3 lines. I can change the meter and yard.

    I purchased the range finder in 2007 and only used it for Archery season.

    I put in a fresh battery and push power button but it does not range find. It just shows 3 dots.

  • Anonymous Dec 08, 2008

    My range finder will only read out to about 125 yards. I have put new batteries in it. It seems to read shorter distances every time I use it. [email protected]

    The range finder only shows three lines with no distance when powered up. I changed the battery but got no improvement. I tried the re-set solution but got no change.

    I too am having the same problem. I go through the reset sequence and it ranges at the end of the reset but not when I push the button afterwards. All I get is the cross hairs and the 3 lines with the YRD indicator.

  • Anonymous May 04, 2009

    unit is approx. 1.5 yrs old and will not display yardage even after reset.

    display shows yd and m without probem just wont display numbers.

    reticle is hard to see and everything eventually fades away. Nikon should repair these at no charge. i will not buy another nikon.

I just got mine to work. It was doing the same thing. I guess I re-set it. I figured there had to be some way to re-set it. So I pushed the mode button and the power button simultaneously for 30 second. Then it worked! Wooptidoo :)

I have a 2015 Troy Bilt Pivot S ZTR 54" mower. It was running fine when last used Sept '16, but now it womt start. It has fuel, battery shows a full charge & oil is full. This widow needs help!

Does the engine crank when you try to crank it? Or does it completely ignore you? What do you mean by it shows a full charge? Do you mean the battery?

I have brought a new battery for my truck but after setting for two days it goes dead

There is a round issue or something like a power window button that is draining the battery. The other thing I would actually check first is that the alternator is working. If that is not charging the battery when you are running then the battery will die as a result.

First thing to do is clean both battery connections.Fords are really bad for the battery connections corroding. When this happens you can get a good volt reading but not be getting enough amps. Next is to disconnect clean and reattach the electrical connections at the starter. Also check along the wires going from the battery to the starter to make sure the insulation has not been damaged. It is unlikely but possible that a critter or road debris damaged the insulation and caused one of the wires to corrode. The starter is the heaviest draw on the battery so physical damage to the electrical system will show up here first. If everything else checks out you will want to have the starter checked. If you are capable of removing it most major auto parts stores can bench test them.
Hope this is helpful to you. Good Luck!

1989 Ford F250 pickup- amp meter reads backwards

If you had a dead short when connecting the neg. battery cable, the battery was being installed backwards or you had grounded the alternator + lead somhow.

I suspect whnen you installed the battery, you have burnt all of the diodes out in the alternator and the AMP meter is showing no charge. The AMP meter also could have taken a beating in the reversal.

Check the battery in in correctly first. If not reinstall or get the correct battery. Then check the battery voltage with the engine running. If less then 13.2. Replace the alternator again.

Good Luck

Plasma screen color problems

I just bought a 42pc5d plasma tv it's an LG I bought it in Sept. 07 it started doing the exact same thing your talking about here the red glow type thing. Luckily for me and I hope in your case that the tv is under warranty, although if you know someone or even a repair place I don't think it would cost much to fix (just a guess but the guy told me that it was an easy fix so don't let them try to screw you). It really is a simple fix according to the tech. You need to adjust the voltage. He took the tv and watched it until he saw the red and adjusted the voltage and I had my tv back the next day. This was about a week ago and I haven't seen it since. I hope this helps and I hope you have a warranty. By the way LG comes with a 2 year manufacturer's warranty standard so if you didn't get an extended warranty from where you bought it if it's less than 2 years old call LG and they will arrange to have it fixed that's what I did. Here's the number 1-888-542-2623. Good luck.
