    AT Pro going bananas

    My Pro is going bananas every time I switch it on. I've separated the control unit from the coil, and it still beeps uncontrollably. I managed to take it apart, and dried the insides with a hair dryer - on old Pros like mine, moisture can get in - but to no avail. Don't know what to try next - any suggestions? Hope video below posts, and thanks in advance for any help.

    After checking all of the basics and you are still having issues, I would contact Garrett. They have one of the best customer service reputations out there.

    Also if you get a bad ground balance your numbers will just run all wacko GB in a clean area if your are in an area with a lot of iron it will be hard to get the balance . Try also by setting manually to what it usually is see if that helps

    Peal the coil cover off and give it and coil a good cleaning. Sometimes they pack up with crud and the machine gets erratic.
