    I'm loosing my enthusiasm for the CTX

    Get a can of de-oxit spray and spray the coil and data connector contacts both male and female. Dare to open the detector pod and control panel up and do the same for the ribbon connections with help of cotton swab. Check the internal battery for 3.0V. If all’s good there it is your setup or...

    Back to WM08 Module from BT

    I found that the location of the wm08 was critical. I really wanted it on my back belt but it wouldn’t work there.

    Coin Hunting Patterns and Settings

    I would like to see videos on Deep and Fast settings. At the beach I run with them enabled but don’t perceive an obvious difference if I switch them off. I set Smooth rather than Normal. This may give you the response you would like. It seems to hold the target signal as the coil sweeps over...

    Battery problems or charger?

    I mean the board that is in the battery pack. So you have nothing discriminated in pattern 1 or 2 and it silences instead of beeps - or it just plain doesn’t sound at all? Check for nicks/cut in data cable from controller to pod where it makes sharp turns in the plastic. Does the clock keep...

    Battery problems or charger?

    Sube, did you find a replacement power management board for the battery on Ebay? Taltexan, see my pm. I and another guy tried to repair this board but its hopeless as the chip has to be programmed with a charge profile. So we are left with good cells but bad pack.

    Battery problems or charger?

    if you haven’t replaced the battery ever then it’s the issue. Buy new cells for it and rebuild it. Dont toss it as the circuit board is valuable if it works.... They die too.

    Nox acting real erratic

    Try aluminum foil over the control pod just to see if it quiets up. Read another guy say it does - might indicate a bad shield connection in the housing.

    HH Pulse wire came loose. Where does it go?

    If you by chance in Orange County, CA I could look at it for you.

    HH Pulse wire came loose. Where does it go?

    If this yellow wire were the shield the detector would still work with it disconnected. Does it?

    GP/GPX coil experiment risk?

    I tried the TDI Beach Hog on my Extreme. Worked great but when it overloaded because getting to near my scoop there was a nasty sounding low frequency oscillation dounfing like the front end frying. Turned everything off and back on and all is good. I’m using a nuggetfinder amp and a buck...

    So while beach hunting, always getting stopped for questions about machines and detecting.

    Some of the people I’ve met and talked with are much more memorable than the targets I found that day...

    Whites closing their plant.

    At least you can buy parts from them and they remain priced decently. Just got a pod backpiece for my XLT $10.

    Spectrum XLT rear display cover broken

    I discovered the rear of my Spectrum XLT's display pod cover is broken and the rest hanging from a ribbon cable. I don't see an obvious way to separate the cover from the front cover piece. Are there hidden screws, or do I pry and snap if off - what's the trick? Also I you know of a spare rear...

    Excalibur running down batteries too fast

    You might have a poor battery connection somewhere that creates a voltage drop. Measure the current to see if it is normal. If so, measure the voltage right at the board to see if it is the same as across the battery.

    Cleansweep coil

    I have a Tejon that is in such great shape, with 3 coils. I mainly beach hunt though so I got other detectors for the beach. But now the beaches have been lacking targets and the best shot is the dry. I wonder if it is worth searching for a Cleansweep for it for the dry. Would be a lighter setup...
