    Trx pinpointer

    I don't see a forum for the pinpointer, so hopefully someone here can help.

    I bought a new TRX pinpointer, but it won't go to the vibrate only mode. I'm turning it on, then holding the power button as the manual states. It will only cycle through 1 beep/vibrate to four beeps & vibrate. I can not get it to do either vibrate only or beep only. What am I missing (except my $).

    I had to put some paper towel in the battery cap so it would stay turned on too. Don't know if that's a problem with the AA batteries only, since mine didn't come with the 9 volt adapter for some reason, so I couldn't try that battery instead. (I didn't realize it was missing, until I tried to put a 9 volt in at the lake today, only to realize the battery was much too small on it's own).

    I had the same problem with mine staying on. I cut a plastic bottle cap and used it as a shim. Now it works fine.

    thanks for the video, but mine doesn't do this. It just cycles through the 4 sens levels and nothing else. Not sure what is going on.

    I would contact Whites about it, they are very good about repairing or replacing. Just go to their website for contact info
