    Fisher F2-false signals, no signals...

    Bought it not even two days ago...first detector, so maybe its just me...

    I went out and found a quarter in a field after a few false signals...

    It rained before hand..poured...but then stopped and was sunny...I let the ground dry for an hour or so...

    I went to a beach tonight and got nothing but false signals...nothing above 3"...but I dug them all anyways...
    The sand was I'm not sure if it was that..

    I even buried a nickel 2.5" down...I knew where it was, and I ran the detector over it for 10 minutes...NO signal...
    I then reached in the sand and pulled it out with my hand...thats how dead on I was with using the detector right over the area...

    Does it sound broken to you? or like it needs something or is it just the wet conditions...
    I hope its not the wet rains all the time around here...

    Thank you anyone who can help me.

    I have an F2, the only time I get falsing is when the sensitivity is set too high. This will be even worse at the beach, do you remember where you had it set at?

    A lot of detectors have issues with wet salty sand, unless they were specifically built to deal with that. Even then, only believe that they do it well after the MD community tries them out and verifies they actually do as they claim.
    No matter where you go, there you are!

    I have a similar issue.
    Without the coil plugged in, I receive a signal. When I swing the detector, with coil unplugged, I get a signal. Is this normal?
