    I hate the warning beeps and turn it off between targets. Most times I don't use it, just on those tiny things that elude me.

    Every time mine does that it ends up being the battery. I always keep some extra Duracellís with me. They are a little more money but last a lot longer in my pinpointer.

    The "Carrot" is supposed to be water-proof, so take out old battery, put in new, and SNUG the battery cap, down - then turn it on.
    It can be reason to doubt the pointer, if not ("-proofed") from use in high humidity environment - so, it might be corrosion of the Contacts to the battery. ..
    Not enough pressure on the battery...?

    Yep...I do the same thing as Loco-Digger. I Turn it off while not trying to locate item in the hole dug... Makes the 9V battery last a lot longer too...

    Be sure to crank it REAL Snug...!
    I'm not sure what kind of thing puts pressure on the battery contacts, in the Carrot,
    but my two old black Garretts had a piece of sponge rubber on the cap,
    that gets dis-lodged, during the screwing-down process - check that too.

    Iíve owned the Black Garrett for about 3 years. It freaks out every so often even with a new battery. I have a New Garrett carrot Iíve used 3 times. Iím saving it for a back up. I know you all use different pin pointers. So In you allís opinion whatís the best one that will hold up longer. Iíve been looking at the fisher seems to be a good one.
