    Uh Oh.... My At Pro is messing with me, and I'm not in the mood.

    Went out for a quickie this afternoon, the permission I've been to several times. I was running the 5X8 coil in a trashy area... after pulling a target, my machine went silent, about a minute later I realized how quiet it had gotten. The unit was on, but little else. I waved the coil against a fence post, nothing. That's weird. I turned it off, and on again, worked fine for a minute, then same thing. 5 times I put up with this and said no more...lets figure this out. The batteries were at about half power, so I replaced those, then I switched out the coil to the 11.5 DD... made sure to clean the connectors of dry sand, and lubed up the O-Rings just for good measure. Back to the hunt, I threw down a clad quarter for a test run...85 on the screen... ok, lets go...then DEAD. I mean dead dead. The machine cut out, and there was no coming back...WTF
    I came home, put all my gear up, and settled in for what would be a depressing foray into getting my machine fixed.... The owners manual was there only as a prop as my wife looked on with pity, not because of my machine being sick, but probably how I am dressed. Anywho....I realized that I had never done a factory reset... and SOB, it worked! So now I am letting my ATP take a break, maybe there was some bad ju-ju in the yard that made it freak out.... I wont tread far from home on my next hunt, as it may happen again.... Not worried about the Garret service or support if I need it, just don't want to be going through the hassel of shipping, etc... well, that's my rant, just had to get that of my chest. HH...BWD

    P.S. I found 2 wheat cents, 1919, and 1945.

    See? This is why you need several quality back up machines.

    And Christmas is just around the corner. How coincidental...

    Use the Quest! Your ATP knows you will have a new detector and it's acting up. Lol!

    Sorry to hear about the Garrett. Glad to see the factory reset worked. How soon before the Quest arrives? Looking forward to your post of your findings and impression of the new machine.

    So it looks like I gotta call Garret in the morning and get a Return Merchandise Authorization #.... Got it boxed up, ready to go... I feel like I've punched in the gut.
