Have White MX Sport Problems Been Fixed?

Recommended Posts

fishersari    5

Hi there, new member here :smile:, First off all, English is not my 1st language, learnt it through online gaming and professor google translator.

OK I'm from Malaysia and I would like to buy the MX sports. After doing some research, its seems that the detector has some problem that need to be rectify via sending back to factory. This will be a problem for me if I needed to send the detector back to US, money and time wise. I read from various, sites and forum that some of the detectors are going great but some or not due to the software and crack issues. 

In other word, Is there any guarantee that I will get the latest version of the detector if I buy now or should I wait?

Hope forumers understand on what I'm talking about. I try to explain more as best as I could if needed. Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the forum.

The only way I know to be sure you are getting the latest version of the MX Sport is to buy one direct from the factory. People appear to be happy with the latest version. Buying a used MX Sport could easily get you one with problems that would require a return to the factory. Even buying one from a dealer could present a problem since you have no idea how long the dealer has had the unit on the shelf.

Hi Fishersari

 Steve told you what's best on buying MX Sport and I'll tell you what a great buy you're going to make.

I see you be the lucky one being you didn't have to ride the trouble out like I and others did. I have all three coils White's make for the MX Sport and everyone was talking about how great Detech coils are on the MXS. Well it wasn't but one way I'd ever know so I put money down for the 7 in.DD coil.

I don't know if you remember when you were a kid and you'd get a new toy but get sick about the same time. The kid is bigger now but it still happen about the same time my Detech coil came in. I really after all that waiting just got out to hunt this old place that I'd call trash city and yet my MX Sport picked out three coins among all that trash. I found this little 7 in.DD coil has great depth and does a great job in a high trash area.

I could sit here telling you just how great the MX Sport is. But that would take all the fun of you finding out for yourself. I say one thing and that is you will have your first fun day when you buy it plus more to come as time goes by.

The Best to You

Chuck

Hi Steve and Chuck,

Thank you for the reply, In all my research to collect the good, the bad and the ugly of the MX sports, I followed your journey and Steve comment/review? on MX Sports very closely. At first its was 50-50 decision on to buy or not to buy the MX sports until chuck was satisfied with his MX Sport performance. Ill be contacting White to see either they doing international shipping and other things that need to be address before purchase. Thank you again :smile:

Hot Dog Tom you are on the ball ! You were always there when I was in need and I'm glad your here too for others when in need.

I think we have a one on one with more Detector Companies than other forums do.

I don't think I need to say more.

They are a brand new distributor - we have only shipped them the latest units.

The thing about forums is that people go to them when they have a problem. Then, when the problem is fixed, they are too busy enjoying the product to bother posting anything but finds...

Generally speaking "no news is good news" if people are buying your product and not returning it. But it is good to see solid reports from the field every once in a while. I keep my eye on the big MD forums, and the MX Sport is racking up a lot of kudos and finds. A quick search on findmall or other spots will show what I mean...

Shelton I don't speak Polish,but I do speak detectorspeak and I would agree with you that your MXS has a problem. With a display such as that one would not know anything except beep and dig. Hope you get it fixed.

      What a weekend! I had the opportunity to head out to Idaho for an event put on by Spud Diggers/Ultimate Metal Detectors and meet some members of this forum who attended. Great group of guys on an old Chinese gold mine with an old townsite. Many layers of history going back from the 1870s to the 1930s, and lots of tin - yuck!
      I followed the Oregon Trail out there, and planned to represent the White's factory at the event since we were sponsoring the event. My fingers were crossed for relics, but I knew that since it was an active mine years ago there was a chance at finding some other types metal. So I brought it all - TDI SL, GMT, V3i, TreasurePro, and of course my go-to the MX Sport. Pretty quickly after running the TDI and GMT I realized that I would need a good discriminator and a strong magnet to get through the tin.
      The first thrill I got was seeing a newbie (Maddie) dig her first signal with an MX Sport - a 1940 Merc on the side of the road by camp. She was shaking when I caught up with her after hearing her holler out loud! Oregon Gregg was hitting IHP's and everyone was finding relics left and right with a few coins thrown in.
      Even I was finding some buttons, bullets, and a nice little pewter teacup from a child's play set.

      I found a flat area that looked like a prime spot where two creeks met. The area had been hydraulic mined, as well as dredged, with hard-rock mines in the area. I got a bunch of strange lower-conducting signals with the MX Sport and decided to dig one. They were about 6-7 inches down and rang up in the foil/nickel range on the MX Sport. My newly purchased HoeDag made quick work and the TRX helped me out since the targets were pretty small.
      What came out looked like a crusty booger. Underneath the crust it had a dull yellow shine. 

      The mining report I read mentioned several different types of processes the miners used throughout the 80 years of active work, so I kept three pieces I dug from the same hole for examination later. There were other signals in that area to investigate but I had high hopes for a Chinese coin so I moved on. The rest of the hunt was awesome - lots of miles on my boots, awesome company, great food, and memories to last!
      After I got home I was too curious to wait, so I broke out the peroxide and a brush and got to work. Somewhere I lost the small BB-sized piece in the field photo between my fingers. But the bigger pieces made it home. Here's the finished product:

      I will admit I got a little shaky when I saw them start to shine in the peroxide. 

      I got to meet Gerry from Boise on my trip, great guy and I figured I owed him this shot with the 2.5 grammer.

      Every time I find something new I get more and more hooked by this hobby. Thanks to forums like this, Ultimate Metal Detector, and of course WHITE'S ELECTRONICS, I can mark this off my bucket list. It took me over a year... but it was totally worth it! I was getting pretty frustrated at all of the skunks, and to find this much gold with the MX Sport, well, I feel pretty damn lucky!
      I need to do a little more digging to see what the crud on the outside was, but there was a lot of sulphide-bearing quartz in the area. I would guess that these nuggets were a result of some kind of refinement and processing and they were just missed by the old-timers. But I know where I'm going the next time I'm in Idaho...

      Hello there, 
       After few months of heavy used at waterfall, beach and dirt, I'm happy that the MX sport didn't have crack, leakage issue . I'm still learning the language of the MX sports.. Still didn't understand about the threshold, what it use for, what does it tell me when the hum disappear in a brief of time especially at high mineralized ground like beach. And I still not confident using the relic mode, too much information its giving out for me . Thank you very much. HH

      Been thinking about picking up a 7" or 9.5" coil for the MXS. I've seen one review on YT on the 9.5 but nothing on the 7"
      They said the 9.5 looses very little depth over the stock 10" and pin points better.
      How much depth loss would the 7" have over the 10" and how well does the pin pointing work with the 7"?
      I've been detecting the fresh water lakes with a lot of trash and cant seem to hone in on my pin pointing.
       Thanks in advance.
      Sod.

      The White's MX Sport is now one of the only "all terrain" metal detectors that comes standard with waterproof headphones. Most waterproof to 10 feet detectors do not come with the waterproof headphones required to make them truly submersible. The MX Sport is now ready for mask and snorkel work right out of the box.

      Sure could use some help on this one.
       This is NOT a post to bash my new found family member. She is very sensitive and goes deeper then I care to dig (all day)
      My first Sport didn't take to the water all that well so I called that sweet lady at Whites and she had a new machine out that day. ( God Bless Her )
      When the new machine arrived I was a little under the weather and wasn't able to unbox her and run but that gave me time to do a some research on an old overgrow park.
      The first four hours she was finding coins, jewelry, Junk and of cores my favorite pull tabs like you wouldn't believe when all of a sudden she went bonkers and every target I hit sounded like someone ripping cloth over the PA system in all modes.  I wanted to do a restore but the manual was sitting at home so I got the Safari outta  the truck and followed the trail in the sand where I was dragging my butt and was back to finding pull tabs?
      This morning I did a restore and she's back?  What did I do wrong to cause my girl to act this way so I can avoid it?
      It was a sunny 71* day. She rode over to the park in the front  seat of the truck with my hat pulled over her face so's not to over heat?
      Battery's fully charged. Coil wire wrapped snug but not to tight. Ground read 64. No overhead power lines and from the looks of the park
      I don't think anything was buried and I did clean the sand outta the coil cover.?
      This will be one sweet baby as soon as I learn how to burp her.
       Thanks in advance.
