    The water was rough where we were staying. It did respond to targets, but it was impossible to recover them. I was expecting to use it snorkeling, but our plans changed and didn’t get the opportunity. This machine would work great under the right conditions.

    Just back from a months vacation at the beach. Unfortunaly it's the same story like last year. I only used the detector for one day before it went crazy. I used every trick out the book to get it working normally but nothing. I even called my dealer 4000 km further for online advice but nothing worked. Last year it worked 14 days before it broke down. I sended it back to my dealer for repair and wen it came back it seems to work normally again and i didn't used it untill the next vacation that was now. It's a pitty beause the detector works well and got my a lott of coins. I will send it back again for repair but i think i will take another extra detector on my next vacation in cause one brakes down.

    Please try to process according to the following steps and check if the detector can resume normal:
    Power on the detector----Detector keeps alarming----Then power off and keep pressing the button-----Remove your finger after all the lights on--Two beeps indicating the adjustment successful. Please make sure no metal objects around when power on.
    After that it works normal most of time, if it starts to be so sensitive again or alarms fake signal I just turn it off/on.
    Of course they asked me send it back but from my place now it's so expensive... cheaper to buy new one.

    Also I protected coil by piece of hose and plastic bottle
