Fault 255 any thing over 2 meters
« on: May 08, 2016, 02:03:56 pm »
I have a Disto x310
It will not measure more than 3 meters max
Using a white target helps but still distances over 4 meters result in a code fault 255,
I have tried a factory reset with no improvement! Any ideas ?????
Thanks Jim L

Are the optics completely clean?

The Hilti laser measure seems to works well between the legs ? So I think it must be the Disto's laser beam? I did check it was clean

Can only think you've got a dodgy disto Jim... I've not had any similar problems. Did you perhaps get something inside the housing when you modified it?

Did it work fine until a certain event/trip or is this from new?
