What I would do if it was mine if this happened to my detector would try to find out where the problem is by process of elimination . The things I seen on your video is if you turn up the threshold it gets no detection you can hear. Turn it down to normal and it detects, but I feel the threshold is over powering the signal. Now I would start turning the controls and see if you hear any static as one control could need replacing or cleaning. If that seems find then with it working wiggle the coil wire where it goes into the coil and anywhere inbetween the coil and control pod to see if there is any static there or cutting out as the coil wire could be broke. if this all seems OK then see what will happen when it is working and tap on the control pod or moving it upside down and see if this make any difference. One thing you can tell if one item act up is the area I would think the problem is.
Just from the little I seen on you video by turning the threshold up you lost your sound of detection, so I would be looking at this first as why it does this. You also said from what I understand you have a 13 volt power supply hooked up to it, but is it the right amperage to run this detector and turning up the threshold may take more amperage the supply can not produce. The reason I mention this is we have seen over the years where some try to put rechargeable in the Sovereign battery pack and get the low battery alert as there is not enough voltage and I am sure this can go for amperage too. On the low battery alert the threshold will get loud and will not detect a target. The Sovereign and the Excalibur are built the same inside to work the same, so maybe this is something to check out that maybe the battery you have is not good anymore.
Just a few things I was thinking on and hope it can help.
