    LOOKING FOR CTX-3030 DISPLAY HEAD PARTS 2

    Hey Guys,
    Well it finally happened to me I use my CTX-3030 exclusively for Beach and shallow surf detecting here in SE & East Florida. A couple of weeks ago seawater found its way into my Display Head through the USB port. I've been running it in the water using the O-Ring upgrades mentioned on this forum for nearly 4-years. This is the first time water has gotten into to actual display head, although I have had two other incidences of water getting into the USB port only. This was after I had already added the O-Ring to the cap threads and also sealed the threads and flat spot on the stub with silicon adhesive/sealant per the water upgrade suggestions.

    For now I have purchased another 3030 off eBay so I won't have any down time to my detecting. Got a nice one from a fellow detectorist in New Mexico and it's in like new condition. But that's another story.

    So now, after disassembling the display head then washing cleaning, inspecting and then reassembling . . . the board has had it. What I'm looking for is a used, working display head you might want to part with. Or just the Board, Display & USB port. My case, switch, cable, speaker and other items for the head are in good shape. All other components of the detector are good too. I would like to get this detector working again as a spare (but don't want to send it in to the factory).

    If you have the parts I'm looking for or know someone that might have them, let me know.
    Looking forward to another exciting fall/winter detecting season here in the Sunshine state

    Best regards,
    Jerry

    I have heard nothing but excellent feedback on the new Minelab Service center in PA. I would give them a call and see what your options are, you may be surprised.

    Thanks for the suggestion choppadude. That may be my last resort option. They have treated me well on one other repair. Just concerned that it will be an expensive option.

    I’ve already been given a location to buy a new display at a reasonable price. Now to locate the PC board and USB plug assembly.
