    Glad to hear he didnt give you any problem...sucks about the shipping, but could have been worse. It cost him too, so he must have thought it was working properly. Maybe he knows nothing about tectors.

    That sounds like the coil where it connects at the plug. It's happened a few times to me over the years and now I duct tape it thick at the connection.

    He may have bent the wire stuffing it in the box. Tell him to send another coil if he has one (you said he had 6 of those machines at one time.)

    Otherwise it's $100+ for a new coil.

    If Canada Post weren't such crooks, I'd send you a coil to try out but that would cost me what it costs you to ship the whole machine!

    That sucks man!

    I hope it works out for you.

    Cheers,
    Dave.

    I agree with muddyhanz,It's the coil for sure .A couple years back I bought an excellerator coil for my DFX and it worked fine for a year,then one day,turned on and It went crazy.
    One of my MD buddys said check the coil so I put my old coil back and it worked fine end of story.Good luck with it.

    Would that cause the PP trigger not to work though?
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    I disconnected the coil from my 1266X and turned it on and it made the same chatter noise like yours. When I used the pinpoint toggle, it went completely quiet.

    Maybe I'll try that with my kids next time they are acting up.

    The SO will probably tell you it's a civil matter, Coinstriking Michigan (state laws vary, as does motivation in police agencies) But talk to them anyway, as they might have other interests in the guy. Have you had any contact with the seller yet? IF he's aboveboard, at the very least he might tell you what's wrong with the machine or give you your money back. I'd prefer to just get my money back and be done with it. Best of luck to you.
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    That's screwed up, worse part is you'll miss out on the chance to own one mighty relic findin' beast . I had the same problem 12 years ago I ran the coil over a buried high voltage cable and fried components in the circuit board . Fisher fixed it for 60.00 and had it back to NJ in less than two weeks .. but that was years ago .. still works better than other detectors I tried out .. i do like the Whites DFX machine

    The gentleman is mailing my detector back to me when it arrives. He told me that the 1266 worked fine when he sent it out. I wish it worked as I really wanted to try it out in some of my hunted out spots. Cosmetically it's in nice shape and I bet it's deep too.

    Coinstriking too bad about the bum deal it happens all the time. I dont know how fat your wallet is, but if I were you, I would get a F70, it is exactly what you want. Save some money and buy a used one, check stock for used units from you favorite dealers. I know what it is like to be a fisher fanatic. You will be much happier with a F70, it is a lot better than the older fisher units, even the coinstrike which is not a really good fisher machine.

    Since I'm still using old fisher's with great success, it is logical for me to ask how much experience did you have with the old fisher's to be able to make such a concrete statement?
    Please also tell me why I would be much happier using the F70 besides the fact that it's a "top of the line" detector.
    Thanks.

    I'll bet it is just an easy fix, and you don't have the expertise to fix it. Just because the box isn't damaged doesn't mean it didn't work when shipped, and now it's knocked out of calibration or something. I have bought and sold dozens of electronic devices, it happens very easily. But I have never had the sender cheat me. You are buying an old cheap piece of electronics through the mail, you should know you are taking a bit of risk when you purchase it. Caveat Emptor. You should have done the proper thing and immediately filed an insurance claim 1 hour after you opened it. If it was shipped UPS there is a good chance it did get damaged en route.. Fed Ex is MUCH better with sensitive electronics. So before you even know who's fault this is, or why it doesn't work, you ought to go easy on accusing people if you aren't sure they are guilty of ripping you off..........Use your insurance , that's what it's for. Otherwise , just right it off as a loss, PS, You will never be able to prove fraud to a Sheriff, save the grief, move on.

    yes if the coil is shorted the pp will not work properly since it is tied to the coil activation it happened to my ace 250 i turned it on and it just kept on making noise if i pushed the pp it was still making noise even if i waved metal under the coil. He probably turned it on and waved a coin and it made noise so he thought it worked.

    My point is just an opinion. In my opinion, the f70 is better than the older machines. Everything about it is better. Better technology, ligher, faster, better coil design, better processing, deeper, on and on. I wish I had one. Too expensive for me though.
