    Well, the lawn could be full of little metal. Mine was. Try taking it somewhere else and try it before doing anything else. Sometimes the coil wires go bad also.

    I find my Ace 250 goes off real bad between my house and the neighbor's. I have 2 massive radio antenna maybe half a mile away and also a rats nest of powerlines. Maybe some radio frequency interference (RFI) ? I agree with smokey, find a nice secluded spot to test out the rig? Good luck and happy hunting.

    PS I found an old swim beach that was undetectable due to RFI. Real bummer as it was a popular spot in the 20s and 30s..

    Ground balance somewhere there is no metal, turn up discrimination, turn down sensitivity

    Lowering the sensitivity and find a 'good" piece of ground to ground balance. Also, try shifting the working frequency from F1 - F4 and determine if the machine behaves well.

    Buried pipes and power lines really F with my detector, sometimes you just gotta turn the sensitivity down. Also 22 blanks are sometimes used in concrete nail guns or less commonly starter pistols for races.
    The universe rewards the observant.
