2500 and sticking buttons!


New member
Hi, I have had my 2500 for a little over a month now. I am experiencing the little yellow buttons sticking in the "pushed-in" position. It is easy to un-stick the buttons, but is this an issue I should take-up with Garrett? Thanks for the input.......Martin.


Sticking buttons on the 2500 plagued me for a while also, and I am sure this has bothered a number of other people as well. I called Garrett about the problem and the response was

[size=medium]When I first got my 2500 and took it on the first hunt I got my pin-point button stuck and it took me a few minutes to figure out what went wrong. I did it a couple more times later on but I quickly figured out that with my machine if I push straight down on the center of the button instead of down and forward, there was no problem[/size]. I've heard of the sticking buttom problem before but think it's more of when the buttom is pushed down and the top of the button gets slid under the faceplate. If it's pushed directly straight down , it comes back up every time. At least on my machine.

After some use, well alot of use, mine quit doing that. They must wear in or something before they don't stick. Big pain in the rump but you take the good with the bad.... Todd

I hunt with light leather gloves on, and it can be a problem. After you use it awhile, you'll get used to it, and the problem will cease. In some ways, sticking the Pin Point down can be of help when the signal is elusive.

Had the same thing happen to me. Thought right from the beginning it could be a problem, if you didn't keep the buttons clean. So I keep a small brush with me in the car and after every hunt I clean around the buttons and edges. Seems to help some.
