Help??? Wireless Module Not Connecting

Recommended Posts

Apparently, my wireless pairing button does not work...

I have tried every combination to get the thing to show...but, it won't.

Detector on...

WM on

wm rapid blink on

PUSH the wireless, water-proof button-NOTHING

several Factory resets done also....

The trouble shooting guide says to ….CONFIRM the wireless setting is set to on"...??? where is this setting?

Fred the button has 2 modes.  A single press of the button simply turns on the radio and you should see either a wifi symbol or bluetooth (bt) symbol or bt+ symbol flashing in the upper right corner of the display as it tries to connect to the last device it was paired to (presumably your WM08).  If you want to put it in pairing mode, you have to hold down on the button for 2 seconds and then place the wm08 in pairing mode too.  Since you reset your detector, you will have to re-"pair" the wm08 as I just described: turn on detector, hold down radio button for 2 sec (wifi wm sumbol shoukd flash in upper right hand of display), turn on wm08, press pairing button on wm08.  It should lock in and pair within 30 seconds.  If you are getting no wifi or bluetooth flashing symbol after holding tge radio button for 2 seconds, then the button or radio are likely broken.  Good Luck.

Thanks, Chase;

I expect a trip to Minelab will be in order...

I can never find where on their site I e-registered...do you know the secret?

Since no Equinoxes can be out of warranty at this point, they should accommodate you as long as you have a valid serial number.

Mollie at Minelab has connected with me...I sent the detector module and wm back per her request.

I am hopeful.

Thank you Mollie!

btw; email seems more efficient than the telephone, if one needs to chat with them. Apparently they are very busy....

      I've been detecting for awhile now and have in the last couple of years started to use headphones, I always like to hear things around me. So my Question is who makes a quality single muff headphone ???? Or can you macgyver one,  The headset can be designed for metal detecting or for audio use, I don't care, I Just want a good quality headphone. Any help would be much appreciated (cost is not an issue) durability is. Hopefully this is not a dead horse. I'm new to the site so I apologize if this has been discussed before.

      I will be taking the Simplex swimming this summer, and looked into some underwater headphones.  N/M makes UW phones for the Kruzer and Anfibio,
      and they will also work on the Simplex.  On some of the forums some of the owners of the N/M  UW phones mentioned they are not loud enough.
      I ran into the same issue with the nox phones from Minelab.  Too quiet for my 60 yr old ears. I ended up getting some LS Pelso phones and they had nice volume.
      But I sold them along with the nox last year.   I checked with kellyco who is a distributor for Pelso, and they did not know if Pelso made the UW phones for 
      The Simplex, Kruzer and Anfibio.  I went on Ebay. and sure enough there was one set for the Simplex that the manufacturer in Hungary had listed. 
      Cost $94 with one week shipping.  Well they arrived today.  I plugged them into the Simplex, turned it on, still had the volume in the machine cranked up to 4, swept a quarter past the coil, and my head almost exploded. 🤢!!  I turned the volume down in the Simplex to 1, and the volume is just right for me now.
      If you need a louder set of UW phones, check out the Pelso brand. A nice snug fit, good quality as well.   HH & Swimming.

      Using Wi Stream module is helping me vs Bluetooth wireless headphones.
      Like to hear some other folks reports using Wi Stream with Nox in difficult sites.

      Just ordered these:

      and paired with one of these portable chargers (for example)::
      am wondering if it will work prospecting in the US Southwest desert.  (If not it won't be the first time I've wasted $10, even this month.)  I'll report back when they arrive, but given it's Christmas rush for shippers it may not be until after Christmas.
      Here's a link to a Google Search which shows several places to buy the above speakers.  And just one choice of the USB charger/power-pack of many on the market.

      The Minelab ML-80 headphone is made by another company and sold under other brand names. The Miccus Stealth SR-71 has been a popular alternative. Unfortunately an update has possibly made the latest version of these headphones incompatible with the Minelab Equinox. From this ad:
      "IMPORTANT NOTE FOR METAL DETECTOR USE: The current SR-71 Bluetooth 5.0 release DOES NOT work with metal detecting equipment. The reviews are citing earlier 4.2 versions of the headphones."
      This also for the Miccus website:
      "Are different brands of Bluetooth products compatible? Yes. Bluetooth manufacturers are required to make their Bluetooth products compatible with all other Bluetooth devices; failure to meet this requirement means products cannot legally display the Bluetooth logo. Just because a device is Bluetooth enabled, however, does not mean it supports the A2DP stereo music profile. All Miccus Bluetooth products support A2DP and will only work with other Bluetooth devices that support the A2DP profile as well."
