    I'm bout ready to call it quits.

    So as I posted the other day, I traded my nice Coinstrike for a Fisher 1266. I was informed that it was nice nice shape and in perfect working order. Well I got it today and it doesn't work. It beeps non stop when I turn it on, it won't pick up a silver coin that's waved over the coil and the pinpoint trigger doesn't work. I am waiting for a response from the guy and then I'm going to call his local sherrifs office. Any ideas what could be wrong? I took a video of the issues.
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    I would contact him first to see what he has to say. Very unlikely that he didn't know that it was sick but it is possible. Give him a chance to return or make right and if no luck go after his A.$.$

    He said it was working just fine, the package wasn't damaged at all and it was packaged very well with tons of bubble wrap....Grrrrrr....I feel like ripping someone's head off.

    My best idea is fisher products I believe are lifetime warented but not sure.Also the detector sound like its overloaded.My whites DFX has done that couple of times go crazy.
    With the DFX you turn on machine and when its going crazy you take out the battery while its running,sets it back to factory setting.Good luck with it leprechaun.

    I know this may sound stupid, but maybe the external speaker is messed up. What does it do if you plug headphones into it?

    I don't use headphones, or even own any for that matter. That still wouldn't explain the detector not sounding off over a silver coin or the pp trigger not working...thanks though

    I imagine you have probably fiddled with everything to get it to cut the chatter out. I could be wrong... but I thought I heard it hit on your dime... but in the real world you couldnt pick that out with the chatter.

    Have you messed with the coil cable any to see if theres a short? Undo the connection and turn it on? A lot of detectors will just blare a single tone without the coil plugged in. Might give you an idea if its on the coil side or the circuit side.
    If you ever hit the big one detecting....follow the 3S rule. Shoot. Shovel and Shut up.

    I've tried everything, I've unscrewed the coil cable at least 10 times...I think it's just a plain ol defective unit.
