I am having an issue with my Quattro not wanting to turn on. I changed the batteries and cleaned the connectors. When it does finally work, it goes haywire throwing all kinds of numbers.

It should be like all the Minelabs. Just press and hold the power button till it says reset...GL 7 HH

Seems like you may have 2 issues going on? I would also suggest holding down the power button for a reset but also you might want to check your coil to see if it doesn't have any magnetic material i.e. if you have done some beach detecting, check for magnetite or 'black sand' which is iron oxide that you might come across on some beach's (especially Sothern California beach's). That will also cause the symptom that you describe.

I did a factory reset. Will try it in a few days. I clean the coil after each use, so hoping it just needed a reset.

Also, if you have a skid plate on your coil, take it off and clean the dirt out of it.
