Dime / Quarter VDI Error In New 6” Concentric Coil

Recommended Posts

An error in VDI number and quarter/dime reporting has been noted in the early version of the new 6” concentric coil for the White’s MX series. I can’t imagine not digging anything reading in this range anyway, but it is something to be aware of. If nothing else it could affect resale value on the coils so if you have one and this is a problem it can be addressed under warranty once a fix is applied. Stay tuned.

You know how to make a guys day. I hadn’t had my 6” coil maybe two weeks at the most when like said before a frying sound.

I sent that coil in with my ever so sick Sport. Just maybe while they have both in there hope both get fixed.

Tom from White’s over on Findmall states that the problem with the 6” shooter coil is a easy fix and should be complete by two weeks.

I’m just relaying what was said on the above forum.

Well I got a email from UPS stating my MX Sport with my 6” coil should be here tomorrow. Need to check out the Sport with the problem that sent it back to White’s. The odd thing when I sent in the 6” coil with the Sport I didn’t know it had a ID problem. That’s another thing I’ll need to check out.

Well I got my Sport back then Tom had stated two days after it was shipped that the 6” coil problem was fixed.

Today I put back in the mail and White’s will receive it Wednesday. I’d think the latest I should receive it back is the last of next week.

I can see I got a new Sport back being this one is liking a serial number inside the battery compartment.

Anyone on here have any idea what’s involved to correct the problem the six shooter coil is having with the ID.

My reason for asking this question is White’s received my coil on the morning of May 9 th and haven’t received or heard back a word on it.

Maybe my thinking is wrong in that the coil I sent would be all or part be trashed. Due to that I’d receive another one sooner than 9 days come tomorrow.

      Both the MX Sport and the Equinox 800 are waterproof and that’s about where the two are alike ends.
       Now if we want to put the detectors that have the option to run in different frequencies then how would you place them in price? I speaking about the ones that have other frequencies but still run only one at a time .
       Now remember the Equinox is at the top with a price of 899.00 and a true multi frequency.
        Would you want to slip it in between the Sport and the Equinox in price? Maybe we could lower the price of the Sport and place the ones we’ve been talking about in it’s spot..
       Just thinking out loud but everyone has their own opinion.

      I need to know the type and size of the screws in the Sport ? Do you know if it can take a higher voltage without smoking it ?
      If anyone else knows the answer please do reply.
      When I get finish with my Sport we both may not know it.

      Hello
      I read somewhere that relic mode is the best to find all items at iron filled sites, as coin and Jewerly and Trash mode, can mask out keepers
      also how important is Manual ground balance?, as i was told the machine just takes care of it when you turn it on
       
      any help is great
       
      Thanks

      I finally got to use my MX Sport today for the first time. In relics mode it was bouncing all over the place, switched to coin and jewelry and the machine performed better for me. Any advice for the relics mode would be appreciated.
