  1. Thank you all. I misspoke: the red LEDs are solid (not blinking) for a few minutes and then go out; which, according to the headphone user guide, indicates a full charge. I will attempt to find another cord to use to charge them. I have attempted both an AC adapter on the USB charging cord and directly connecting it to both a computer and a power-strip USB port, all with the same result. I will continue my attempts to contact ML and the Dealer. Thanks again, all
  2. Last week, I attempted to power on the ML 80 headphones I use with the Equinox 800. I purchased these new in March 2019. They would not power on. I charged them: the 3 red LEDs flash for about 10 minutes and then turn off, as if headphones were charged. But, the headphones still will not power on. I attempted to contact my dealer and ML, but neither have yet responded. Does anybody have any novel ideas to try, or troubleshooting, remedies? I would greatly appreciate the help! Thanks,
  3. Somebody get them a virtual server with backups. Ha ha. I can't concieve a reason this would be intentional.....
  4. Didn't know that was a relative of the tdi...guess I've had my head in the sand. thank you and sorry. It has piqued my interest. I had already written that detector off....but not anymore.
  5. Where? Maybe I need to research more? Is it obvious and I have missed it?
  6. This is my go to detector forum. I rarely visit others! Too bad White's doesn't seem to maintain theirs. In my opinion, anybody that uses active server pages for a website (like White's) will have issues anyway. Ha ha.
  7. Harvest them from a non-functional laptop battery. There are some good articles online with instructions. In my experience ~50% of "dead" laptop lithium ion cells are still a-okay.
  8. Are the tones similar to what one hears with the BBS Excalibur or Sovereign? I remember being able to “hear” rings and multi-metallic objects. I assume maybe the tones might be even more telling with the advanced tech in the Equinox!?
  9. Great job. Would you be willing to share the file so others may print? Thank you!
  10. I too have resisted Facebook and other nonsense social media. Social media seems to fall short with meaningful information, unlike a forum. This forum is my mainstay detecting forum and hopefully sites like these continue when fad sites like Facebook wane.
  11. Very sad indeed. I doubt the threads are truly erased from the server, but they are not accessible; I tried. ?
  12. ....Depends on coil size and even the area in Oregon. Some spots are more mineralized than others!
  13. With the existence of a manual, a webpage and a video I’m of the opinion it’s not a lie; however, it is a puzzling marketing strategy.
