Bushnell tour x stopped working?

Flames20Flames20 Members Posts: 373 ✭✭
My tour x just randomly stopped working yesterday. Worked half the round the out of the blue it flat out stopped working. (Not the battery)

Has anyone else had this happen? If so what did you do. I can send it into repair department, but this costs$ just to ship and have shipped back. No idea of repair cost. Not too happy with this situation right now as I’m out a rangefinder for what I assume will be minimum a month. It’s not like they are cheap to replace.

    I hate to ask the dumb question, but did you try a brand new battery (or even more than one just in case you got a bad battery)? The reason I ask is because the first time the battery went dead in my bushnell it gave no indication the battery was low, it just worked one hole and on the next it wouldn't even try and turn on. At first I assumed the rangefinder broke, but I talked to my buddy and he said he does that when the battery dies.

    Tried a brand new battery and also the battery from my friends rangefinder so I was 100% sure it wasn’t the battery.

    Did you ever figure out what was wrong?



    I have a Bushnell Tour X that I've used for over a year. Just recently, I've had problems locking onto targets. It takes several seconds to lock onto a flag instead of a split second. It doesn't lock into dark targets anymore. Just recently, my rangefinder went from full battery to not turning on. I grabbed a new battery, hoping it would fix it. It turned on, but it still doesn't want to lock on. There are times when it won't lock onto a prism flag, or shiny cart in the sun. It just shuts off.



    I need to contact Bushnell, but last time I contacted them, they wanted money just to look at the rangefinder. I can't help but regret buying a Bushnell after hearing about how great Nikon and Leupold are in terms of customer service, especially compared to Bushnell.

    No power is probably a wire connected to the battery terminal which came unsoldered.



    Easily fixable but those things are a pain to open.

    I have a Tour X and it's noticeably weaker at locking on after 1 year of use. Debating whether to trade it in for a Bushnell V4 or switch to another brand. I liked it when I first got it but now it's annoyingly slow to pick up yardages.

    How do you open these things up?

    How do you open these things up?


    Looking at my Tour X, it appears to be just like my V2 was. You need to peel off the rubber covering and then you will find the screws that let you open it up. A continuity tester will be your guide.

    I would avoid the V4,I have had too many issues with the black spots on the LCD Screen and no help other than "not a warranty issue".

    I received the Tour V4 w/Slope for my birthday in February. It went dead during the last few holes of my round about a month ago. I bought 2 brand new batteries for it. It worked for 9 holes and went dead again. I have since then put another brand new battery in and it now works periodically during my round. Very frustrated. Not sure I can send it in as it was a gift, I have no proof of purchase.

    Any one here who dealt with Bushnell Customer support, do they ask if you bought your range finder from a authorized dealer or not? I see a ton of bushnell on sale on the bay, just wondering if they are going to give you a hard time if it came from the bay. thanks

    This is my second 3v. Both are a pile of s_______t
    Company wants $270.00 to fix my last one. What a lousy company. Going to a different brand. LED went out. Battery is fine. I bought bushnell because they were a good company. There customer service sucks!!! If you pay $399.00 for a range finder it should last for several years not months!!!

    Couldn't agree more, so many great choices now at $200 and down while Bushnell's quality is nothing like years ago and their prices go up and up, $349 for a V4 which is a plascticy shell? Take a look at PP, Golf Buddy or Nikon, all great Lasers at much less and great Customer Service. Off subject but it seems Bushnell is owned by a big group now called Vista Outdoor, take a look at their stock and that may explain why.

    I have had 4 Bushnells. Started with the original big ranger. They all die that kind of death within a year or two. I play a lot so it gets used a lot but yes, they do die a sudden death. Decided to try a Precision Pro this time. Will be interesting to see how long it last.

    Check out the stock VSTO today, the parent Company of Bushnell, down another 23% on poor earnings, I'm sure every division including Bushnell is feeling pressure for profit.....interesting.
