    Maybe try a factory reset.

    Make sure the control housing contacts are clean. I forgot to clean mine after a dip in the ocean, had the same symptoms, fresh water cleaning with a paper towel of the contacts and all went normal during the charge. It would not hurt to wipe off the charging cable connectors also. There will be no more forgetting to fresh water rinse and wipe down after a dip in the ocean even when it is 35 degrees outside and I just want to go and get a cup of hot coffee. Lesson learned.

    I had something similar happen to me and using a different charging cable fixed the problem. HTH

    I was better then after one more trip to to shell island in the swamp today its hurting. Swamp Island is officially over 3 hours of pounding this shell mound and absolutely nothing. Id like to thank this little spot for making two dream bucket listers come true. 1840 Seated Liberty Half Dime and a 1852 Trime. Truly a dream come true. R.I.P.

    I had that bug going around for 2 weeks then Possum and I went out there and I tried moving a fallen tree and one of those swamp vines was attached to it, so when I pick it up to give it the ol hev ho it sprung back on my a twisted the hell out that nerve. Painful. We gotta get together sometime my spots are drying out big time.

    Hey Truth, can you give an update on the Equinox charging problem you had? Did it resolve itself? Was there anything you did beyond a factory reset? Thanks in advance.

    Just happened to me. Got back a few days ago from detecting salt water and I'm charging it now.
    At first the light wouldn't even come on, but then it started blinking and now is solid green (after 5 minutes) and shows full charge.
    I think it is wrong because I used it for at least 2 hours yesterday.
