    That is odd it stopped working for being only a year old. Does it not turn on at all, or are the readings inaccurate?

    The display is completely blank? Try holding the power button for 3+ seconds. Maybe it will reset it? Try the same with any other buttons it may have ex. (Mode) if all else fails dont panic! I have a vortex ranger 1000 display ill make a great deal on

    Explain the situation to Nikon. Maybe they'll get one out to you fast. You could both overnight it, and have it in a couple of days.

    A couple of years ago I had a set of Nikon Binos in a day pack. I was getting out of an elevated blind when I was hog hunting in Texas. I dropped it from about 10' to the ground, hit on the binos and broke them in half. On a chance I sent them back to Nikon and explained what had happened. Sent me a new pair to replace a 10 year old, beat up old pair...no charge! Only problem is can they get you a new one soon enough.

    We can work out details after your hunt. Just want to make sure you get that tag filled first!
