Guide :Optics : Yardage Pro Tour Rangefinder

I have an old Yardage pro Model 20-0002 date code 02/01 001348. The battery is new but the viewfinder shows 888 yds. on the first push and stays at that number after that. Usually, I hit the top button a second time and the yardage shows up. When I press the side button, the finder shows the 'yd' and 'm' flashing back and forth but does not allow me to chose which one. The battery symbol shows 2 dashes) I loved this model but has it given up the ship now? I used it every year (about 60 games/yr) and it worked flawlessly. I did lose the battery cover a few years ago and cut out a rubber grommet to cover the battery and taped it down. I have never used it in the rain and it gets placed back into the original case after each game.(battery removed each time) Is it time to get a new one?...LOL

Leica disto classic 5a


The optical lens of a laser rangefinder must always be kept clean for optimal performance.The most common cause for a reduced range on this devices, is caused by dirty, or defective lens.If the lens are dirty, on the outer or inner side, or they are opaque or defective, or there is wet inside the lens, than that is the cause for the sensibly reduced range.

I guess I pressed the 'ENTER' / 'MODE' , 'GO TO' buttons too fast, too many times & overloaded my Hand box(#494) and now it is Blank, just a red glow. Is there any way I can reload it? I talked to a Meade employee & he told me I cannot get the original info back into the Handbox, that I can only 'Up-Date' new info, but not get original info back into it, I have to buy a new Handbox for $105. plus shipping. Can you help me. I do not at this time have a Meade Cable connector kit #506, which I would need to connect my Scope to my computer, but will purchase one if I can re-load my Handbox over the Meade website with it. Thanks for any help you can give me. -Ernie Riedel


To reload the software you need the cables kit you mentioned. Both firmware and tours are available on the Meade web site for free download.Reinstall the firmware.http://www.meade.com/support/downloads.html

My RB800C seems to have a battery problem...seems to always show low battery power and will give a yardage reading or two before refusing to work again. This AM I put a new battery in it and again it worked for a reading or two before showing no battery left.


I struggled to work out what was going on with mine (I had the same problem) and concluded that it was either an issue with the electronics, which was beyond my skills to fix, or something much simpler. We all tend to assume the more complicated answer, so I focused on the very thin and nasty spring inside the battery housing cap. I wondered if that spring was deforming in some way and causing a short circuit. So a couple of months ago I unscrewed the two tiny retaining screws that hold the plate on which the spring sits, took the plate out, removed the spring, and replaced it with a much thicker, gold plated spring taken from a small flashlight I no longer had a use for. I soldered the spring into location on the plate, returned the plate to the battery housing cap, and inserted a new battery. Two months later, the battery is still showing full power.

Yardage does not shows up at times


First, make sure you are using alkaline batteries only. Heavy duty batteries don't generate enough current for the laser to operate properly. (pg4-para2 of the manual) If the rangefinder hits targets 120 yards or less and doesn't hit targets farther....the unit needs an alignment. Send it in to bushnell, they will repair it.

I droped my range finder in water. I took the back off and drained it and let it dry for three or four days. Put new batterys in it and it works fine. Went to put screws in and I had lost two of them. Also the holes in the cover now will not hold the back on because it appears that the plastic collar has striped out. Can a new back, gaskets and screws be bought for it ?


You can contact nikon directly but usually in equipment like this, you would either have to locate a parts unit or just rig it by using some screws from the hardware store. Make your own gasket and use some super glue. Thanks,Lee
