WOW! Good tip as I had a Compass XP-PRO that did that and thought the meter was bad or dirty?

If you guys are mechanically/electronically inclined, you can gently pry off the cover and (gently) bend the needle back up. It won't hurt the needle. They seem to be made of maybe a soft plastic. The older ones used just a thin wire. These older Bounty Hunters were beautiful in design and in their light weight (post BH VLF 8400/Red Baron, etc.) I'm referring to the newer Big Buds which started making their appearance in the later part of the 80s then from which, evolved the Tracker series. George Payne designed the electronics for all these. His best design up until the late 90s was his Treasure Baron brand.
