Have White MX Sport Problems Been Fixed?

Recommended Posts

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.

      Hi all
      Just joined and would like some help.I detect in Cornwall UK and Spain’s Costa Blanca.
      Owned quite a few detectors over the years inc CTX 3030. The old Whites Spectrum (great detector) Thinking  of buying a used MX Sport but really want to know if all the bugs have been sorted re the firmware upgrades,and is the warranty (2yrs ? )Transferable.
      Would appreciate any help

      This specification comparison chart is derived from the White's MX7 Owner's Manual and the White's MX Sport Owner's Manual. Everything is pretty straight forward. The asterisks note that the MX7 weight with batteries is derived from the manual. The MX Sport manual is unclear on whether batteries are included in the weight and my personally weighing the MX Sport with batteries suggests the answer is no. The MX Sport with batteries weighs 4.23 lbs. as weighed on my postal scales. I can't vouch for the MX7 weight as listed in the manual. Current internet price for MX Sport is $749.00 and MX7 $549.90
      I think it is fair to say looking at the specifications that this is a MX Sport in a lighter weight, better balanced and less expensive package. The only real operational difference is the MX Sport comes with a 10" round DD epoxy filled coil and the MX7 a 9.5" round lightweight concentric. This would make the MX Sport out of the box better configured for water hunting and severe mineralization. The MX7 is better configured for park and other dry land detecting in mild to moderate mineralization. Both units can use the same coils.

      hello fellow detectorist out there,    Hi from a land far far away, my maxy have problem which when i turn it off , i cant turn it back on. The only way to get it to turn on is to pull out the battery altogether. Even when its on, it will turn off randomly. The way its shut down is like something pressed the on/off button ( what im trying to say is its turn off randomly with beeps like proper shutdown. Sorry cant describe it properly since english is not native. )  I have already done the factory reset and change new batteries, but the problem are still there.    Is there any way i can rectify this problem on my own, if possible. Sending back to Whites will cost me money ( which i can add a little bit more money  and buy new coil 😥)  and time. Thank you for your time and suggestion. Below is the findings for an hour of detecting before the problem arise 😣😣

      White's may have created a prospecting detector with both Prospecting mode and Relic mode without even knowing it, thus comes the MX Sport Prospecting mode.
      Remember several of us wanting a GMT with a Relic mode, same detector only have a Relic machine with a high khz. Relic hunting with GMT sensitivity, maybe giving it an edge with separation. Then, flip back to Prospecting mode for nugget zip zip hunting if the user chooses to nugget hunt or detect mineralized fresh water sand with prospecting mode.
      With the MX Sport, White's did it with prospecting mode. A simple switch of turning off or on VCO is all it takes, plus having a SAT now the user can adjust recovery according to ground conditions for Relic 2-tone MXT performance. Iron grunt is locked, for the serious Relic hunter MX Prospecting mode with VCO off transforms the MX Sport into a high end contender.
      So it can be done, White's did it with the MX Sport Prospecting mode. Now, When will White's bring out the GMT Sport with with the added MXT mode using the GMT khz. I see a bright future for White's, it's coming!

       I just wanted you to know I ordered your 7 in. DD coil for my MX Sport last week and I got it today. It looks finer than fog hair and solid as a rock. I had to put it on right away and fire up my MXS. I had to check the sen and depth with both looking great. Hope to get in the field soon but now it's colder than a well diggers butt and until it warms up I won't be going out. Just too young and tender !haha
      Thanks for a great coil and White's also sent me their calendar for 2017.

      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
