Hello;

I have used a MXT PRO almost 5 yrs. I normally run the Gain at 2 or 2.5. I have developed a periodic issue where after hunting for a couple hours, the detector will go into overloaded and not stop; as if you are holding the coil close to an object. I raise the coil but no stoppage. I turn it off and pause before turning it back on. As I increase the gain the overload will come on again around 1 - 1.5. I have then left that area and even tried to hunt miles away. The overload will come back on. This situation is very infrequent, even several weeks apart. The batteries show they are still strong.

Has anyone heard or experience this situation?

Thank you for any input,

Jimbola


I would start with a couple things.

First, take off the coil cover and make sure black sand / debris hasn't accumulated in the space between the cover and coil. Or a buddy hasn't slipped a zincoln penny in there just to be funny.

Second, if you have a spare coil of any type, try using that for a while and see if the trouble clears. Which model coil are you using when this happens ?
