Contact  problems. The + (positive)  tab for the right side battery bends backwards when changing batteries. Any suggestions on a fix?

Bounty Hunter is the manufacturer and yes I contacted them. I would have too ship the detector back to them. I wanted to reach out to see if anyone had any ideas on a fix before sending it out. No luck so far. Thanks for the reply!!

The metal tab is probably mounted in a plastic slot on the chassis and the slot has become loose.  Might be able to bend it back with some long needle nose pliers???  You maybe able to open the case and super glue the tab back into position but if something goes awry you may void the warranty???  The best option is to send it to the manufacturer if it’s still covered by warranty.  That way you won’t have any worries about ruining it permanently.

      White’s you have maybe a month to three months to come out with a new detector line , That’s if you want to keep up with the Jones better known as Minelab and Makro .
       Hope to see the lineup real soon. I know you don’t spend money on flashy videos and beautiful girls and that’s okay with me.
       What I want to see is American made on the housing somewhere and White’s number one detector company again.
       You make it I’ll buy it! ( I’ve been doing it since 1966 )

      Around here in the Klamaths bedrock is at lest 2 feel down and often much deeper.  Digging through several feet of boulders and cobbles is serious hard work.  Then there is sand sliding in from the sides making progress very slow.  To beat that, I need to set the sides of the hole far apart or I get a hole with a hand-sized bottom continually filled with sand from the sides.  That is a lot of work.  Historically the creek was a huge gold producer.  I see little or no gold in the upper material.  Have I just not found the right spot, or is sluicing here hopeless?  Should I spend more time prospecting for productive material near the surface, or give it up?

      I just received a new to me SDC2300 and wanted to verify it using the Minelab security check on their website. I did not receive the viewer that was originally included with the detector so what worked for me was a coolant leak detector flashlight ( black light or UV light) It works well enough for me to read the hidden code and I was able to verify my machine.

      I had a couple lead test targets for calibrating in the field but lost them on my last Western expedition.  This is the main reason I don't use gold test targets!  I'm ready to make a new set.  I'd like to hear your advice on what size and shape of lead I should be using, for both LF and PI detectors.

      I apologize to all my weak English
       A few days ago I was on a journey to look for a gpz 700 golden device when I came across a large quartz rock I passed the device on the rock and issued the device indicating a clear target and the device was as follows
       General
       Allergy 9
       I switched the settings to make sure the target was metal and not an imaginary target
       Difficult
       Allergy 2
       .  It also gave me a clear target signal.  I broke the rock into parts and it took me a great effort.  I reached the desired part and the crystal was in the heart of the rock
       Suddenly after I took out the desired part, I broke the piece in half and found that this material resembles mud and strange when I passed the device on the piece after I broke it the target signal disappeared and the device did not make any sound I tried to change the settings but to no avail the device kept silent
       A question.  Do any of you know these crystalline materials
       And what is your interpretation of what happened
      Thanks to all

      So this has been a yard orndimat  for many years and I'm sick of not really knowing what it is. How can one find out what something is and what's its value. Its none magnetic and very heavy for its size.
