My Trx Bullseye Pin-pointer Is On The Fritz

Recommended Posts

I normally run my pin pointers on vibrate only.   At some point in the past 3 months I managed to change my TRX to beep and vibrate.     When I got tired of it I found my instructions to change it back to Vibrate only and low and behold, the current option is the only option it will give me.    When I try to cycle through the target response options it only cycles through the beep and vibrate mode.   Will not cycle through all the options.   I thought it might be low batteries but a battery change out made no difference.

I've never submerged it so water wouldn't be a issue.   Any ideas?   

Guess I'll have to cough up some money and send it off to Whites to get fixed.

Bummed me out, I can tell you.    I had to leave it at home and start using my Tek-Point which I don't like to use for jewelry hunting as it isn't as sensitive as the TRX on the small gold items.

I don't know how to overcome this issue, but White's might.  I wonder if there is a (hidden) factory reset sequence.  (If you leave the battery out long enough would that effectively be a reset?)  You were going to need to call them to get a return authorization anyway.  Maybe talking to a tech or engineer first would save all concerned a lot of effort/expense.

Hey Mike, best bet is to call the factory and ask to talk to a repair tech - 541-367-6121.

For reference here is a YouTube video that goes through the menu system -

The video was what I needed.   Thanks Tom.

Evidently I was experiencing an ID.10T error.   I didn't know what I was doing.   I'm now back on vibrate and good to go.   the TRX is working fine, its the operator that has the problem.  HA.

Hello.

Good to know Mike Hillis problem is solved and good to know the TRX is working as it should.

Very good help from the users here, thank you. To bad the links Tnsharpshooter mentioned aint working anymore.

When the TRX arrived I had a www search for files about the TRX and down loaded a extended user manual for the TRX,

but cann't remember where?? But for those who are interested I'll attach this here. (hope this is legal !?)

May be it will help some other users, too.

      According to this thread.Link deleted since Findmall Forum update broke all old links
      I have looked at Xp's site, no update posted, still Feb 2017 version.
      This link here may be related to the why behind update.

      It may be the only thing Xp needs to do is change the date of the manual on their sites.
      I could be wrong though.

      Hi all,
      I'm from France, working with a GPX4500 of 2003.
      Yesterday when I started this old guy, I was affraid by this problem :
      - Sound when the treshold start is strange.
      - The autotune (research for free frequency) is a stable sound, with no variation.
      - And no power ! about 5 inch max for my metal digging pickaxe.
      I tried some factory resets, but the problem is always the same...
      I tried this one with another disc, trakking button, cable, headphone, battery, the problem come from the main box...
      Anyone knows this problem ?
      Thank you and have a nice day.
      Luis

      Today I went to the beach to take advantage of the super tides.  I got there and as luck would have it there was no one on the beach in my spots!
      I turned on the detector as I normally do by pressing in the on/off switch on the left side of the control housing.  It turned on properly but I can remember I felt a 'give' that I hadn't noticed before.  It was working so I just went about my detecting looking for targets.  There were not that many either high or low today.
      When I went to take a break I got past the dry sand and tried to turn off the detector as I had turned it on.  I pressed the button and all I felt was it 'give' without stopping.  I tried repeatedly but no luck.  I turned off the headphones and that didn't help, it just made it so everyone could hear.  Now I know I've got a problem but what do I do?  I unscrewed the connector to the coil and a message came on the screen that I think said 'Cd' and then the power went off.
      Now the power will not go back on.  It was just before 5 PM in Chicago but I've left a message for Minelab.  It will probably be Monday before I hear from them now.  It looks like the 3030 will get some use or the SE Pro if I use a detector in the next couple of weeks.
      Anyone had a bad switch yet?
