Hi all.

I have been using a borrowed 5000 and have always noticed that when the detector tips on its side the sound starts to warble and become erratic until I place the detector right way up again.

Do all 5000s have this problem or is it just this one?

Thanks.

Axtyr.

Well i know if you lift a coil as well then sure might have some warble.
Tipping or moving it on a sides should have no difference whatsoever.
Check lead which goes to the box.maybe it moves little and hence the unwanted result.

Mine doesn't produce any warble at all regardless what position i moved it.

Axtyr, if your talking about using a monoloop coil just off the horizontal axis, then yes, this is normal for them to carry on some....not just on the GPX models. Monoloops love being completely horizontal at all times.

If your placing the detector on the ground to retrieve your target, and the coil is not completely horizontal, it will carry on....flatten the coil out and you'll find it becomes better behaved.

Narrawa and Golden.

Thanks for your input. I only ever use the mono coils on this machine so I will try it next time with a DD and see if there is a problem. I have also noticed when I raise it to waist level, which I usually do when AUTO TUNEing, that it warbles. I re-read the auto tune instructions and will follow them now, I have been doing it differently.

Regards Axtyr.

Good idea as it could simply be EMI
