I really don't know what I need, except maintenance, and checking the knob settings.

My pinpoint/disc. knob seems to be reversed.

When I have sens set in autotune, it seems to be the least sensitive setting. When I crank it up to the 9:00 position, and all the way to the 12:00 position, the threshold pitch changes with each sweep of the coil, making it hard to determine if I'm getting a signal from a target, from mineralization, or maybe the coil cable is sensitive to the river current I'm sweeping it in.

That part being said, I'm using it mostly in a knee-deep fast flowing river where tubers congregate. I've been wondering if increasing the sensitivity causes the cable to be more sensitive to the river current, or maybe there's a connection issue somewhere in the cable itself.

It's an Excal 1000, so it's got some age on it, and I'm not the first owner.
