Detector was running fine but yesterday went out and it was noisey. Turned it on done normal start up, ground balanced, but every time i swing it screams no matter where i am. every swing it screams.
any suggestions on what it could be.
checked all the leads, is there some thing that can go wrong all of a sudden in the dectector.
any help would be great thanks

Try a different coil, at least that can help to isolate the problem if a different coil runs ok, if it still does it, try changing the power lead from detector to battery, if it still does it you may need to send it in for a health checkup.

That's good at least it's not the machine, what coil? ML, NF, or CT, sometimes the maybe repairable. Is the coil sill under warranty, if so send it manufacture for repair or replacement.

I had a brand new coil which exhibited a similar fault.

It turned out to be a single strand of wire in the plug into the detector which had escaped solder allowing it to make intermittent contact with its neighbour.
An annoying fault, but in the end, an easy fix.

I think faulty coil plugs and wiring can be the major cause of detector problems. I have noticed many people when changing coils simply unscrew the knurled keeper nut then "yank" the lead to unplug.......can't do the wiring any good.
