Any One Have This Problem With A Ctx?

Thank you Steve and everyone else that has attempted to help me. I will call my dealer and Minelab Americas and will keep you informed of how it was handled.

Norm;

since the detector is brand new I would ask for a shipping tag...you should not have to pay when the thing has hardly been used...worst case they can say...are you #$%^ kidding!

Update

 I took Steve's advice. Talked to my dealer, then Minelab service. Minelab service (Kelleyco) said it should be treated as an out of box failure. I then called my dealer back with to info I had. He then called Minelab Americas. Between my dealer and Minelab, my defective detector is on its way back and a new one on its way back to me tomorrow. Minelab is paying the freight both ways. I am happy to say, I think I have a great dealer and Minelab made it happen.

Norm,

I have had great service from Minelab in the past on my 5000.  I had an intermittent display problem and when I spoke with them they replaced the board and sent it back to me at no charge.

I'm glad yours worked out the same way.

      I don't get to the desert as often as I would like and it seems lately my results haven't been what I like either.  When I do get out several times a week it is here at the beach where I live.
      Last night I went out with my wife in the weeeee hours of the morning when the tide was low and we had a good night.  These are my finds.
      I use my 3030 with the large coil.  This lets me cover some ground but also find coins in the wet sand down to 14 inches or so.  Most are not that deep.  My best target last night was a moonshiner (on the surface) and didn't need any digging.
      The ring is 14k/7.5dwt with 3 puma type cats on it.  The more I look at it the more I like it but it doesn't fit except on the pinky.
      You guys post so many of your gold nugget finds it was time that I show you what I find.
      Happy Hunting on the Beach or in the Desert.

      So I was out today for a couple of hours detecting, haven't even used the first set of batteries yet since I received my detector. After a couple hours the threshold all the sudden stopped working. Replace the batteries and still nothing. Sounds off on some targets but no threshold. Makes a crackling sound when I turn the detector off.... anyone know what the heck's going on with this thing?
