Profind 35 Self Calibration Question

Recommended Posts

My Profind 35 seems to sound off on nothing and seems to be getting worse. 

If I turn it on away from anything facing upward it will sound off if I turn it facing down. If I turn it on facing down it seems to be ok but will start sounding off sometimes sideways. I have cut the sensitivity to halfway but that makes no difference. I have a fresh 9v in it.

Has anyone else run into this?

(note it is a replacement unit, previous unit the speaker died but would run pretty stable)

kac, yes, same with my 35. I'll pull it out of a dig hole and it will continue to beep. Sometimes just starts beeping by itself, I have to turn it off then back on for it to work, not very reliable. I have purchased a carrot and given up on the 35. Not sure what is up with Minelab pin pointers but my 25 did the same thing.

If I turn it on facing down at a 45 it does better but there are time I feel like just leaving in the hole I just dug and burry the bugger.

So I guess that random loss of calibration is a "Feature" and does not warrant an RMA from Minelab.

Thanks for the reply.

My Profind 35 also gets "stuck" on occasionally also but so does my Garrett pinpointer.  I have to turn it off and back on to get it to function properly.

I noticed my Pro Find 35 acting odd also. It interfered with my ORX and also Tekentics T2. It's a nice pinpointer that has great depth but due to it acting weird and interfering with my detectors it is not used anymore. The Mars pinpointer I bought is not as bad about interfering. I can run my ORX at the lower end of the frequencies now without the interference. I've been pleased with the Mars pinpointer. It seems to be more focused on the tip end than the Pro Find 35.

      Got sick of buying 9v batteries for my Profind pp. Blackube just came out with rechargeable 9v lithium batters that have the same voltage as an alkaline. A little pricey at $25 for 2 but the PP no longer falses out when put on it's side then turned back up. This used to drive me crazy. Batteries put out near full power until they run out instead of fading in power like alkalines do.
      IMO worth the few extra bucks.

      Yes the old saying is true most of the time.  Well pump goes out and you miss the convenience of water when you are thirsty.   Well my F-Pulse started acting up with erratic beeping.  Put a fresh set of batteries in and still it was not acting right.  Decided to leave the batteries out overnight and the pointer actually started working but within a few minutes the same thing.  Thinking oh no, I bet the warranty has expired, I frantically searched until I found my paperwork and it looks like I have 3 weeks until the 2 year warranty expires. Contacted customer support, via email and Felix emailed me back with the needed RMA number and instructions for repair etc of the unit.  He also stated, that they were not doing any hobby repairs due to the city being closed down but he assured me that my warranty would be honored regardless of when they actually get to check my pinpointer. 
      Now I will say, I never missed this pointer until I had to start using my backup.  The F-Pulse gave me a lot better performance in the bad ground areas where I hunt.  I sure miss it a lot.

      I've seen videos of the Simplex and some pinpointers interfering with each other. Is this still a problem? I didn't assume a software update could fix this because 12khz is really close to most pinpointers. I own a Garrett carrot that I use with the Nox and a XP MI-6 with the Deus. I didn't want to buy the Simplex and then have to buy a new pinpointer also because of the interference.

      Have any of you long-timers used this machine? I cant seem to find a review on forum, but didnt dig too hard.
      I was thinking abt taping probe to stick to poke in holes in creek, at least down to that 4ft. range. perhaps idenify some areas to dredge next month.

      I saw this posted on an instagram account. Dwight has done promo stuff for NokMak so it shouldn’t be a hoax. Sent him a message as to a time frame and I will report back if he has any info unless Dilek has some info coming too.  
       I had thought about getting one of the Pulse Dives for super hot summer snorkeling before but the option of a larger coil definitely adds to the appeal.
