    Kaput !

    Anyone know the symptoms of a bad coil ? My symptom is everything works normal but nothing gets detected. I can hear the buzz, work all the menus. Did a reset no joy. There is also a long vertical line about mid display & no coin-ring-cap etc icons. It ran fine last week but was dead today...

    Anyone have an old GTA500 that can ohm out the search coil connector ? I think I may have an open coil but want to be sure. Alternative is the interconnects between the PCB's or dried up electrolytics. Beyond that its retirement time:cry: HH Tom LFOD !

Of note was ground balance. She said zero unless you are on very hot ground. Noise cancel every change in modes. If you know...

    U tube

    Now that EQ's are out there should be U tubes soon. PLEASE if you post one be sure it will hit on a " Minelab Equinox" search. I know nothing about such things but I would imagine if its in the subject line that would work. TYVM Tom in cold NH LFOD !

    New Safari

    First off thanks to all on the forum. It was VERY helpful in deciding on the Safari. I have no regrets. I got the Safari to replace an old Garret GTA500 which is now a back up. I have a few comments after going through a set of batteries. 1) Safari IS a turn on & go detector. Only thing is I...
