  1. I was one minute into the day when the 7000 lost sound to the WM12`s. This has happened before but restarting the detector always fixed it, but this time the detector wont power off either. The only way I can turn it off is to unplug the battery. Tried everything, turned off the GPS, plugged in 2 sets of headphones, did a full detector reset- Still no sound and wont power off. I phoned Minelab, they seem to know what`s wrong with it and only want the back end of the detector back, not the coil or shafts or battery Thank goodness there is still 5 months of warranty on my detector.
  2. I recently lost sound whilst detecting. The detector was working just fine. I turned it off after finding 3 small pieces of gold to have some lunch. After i turned it back on and went through the quick start process it just dropped sound. Only noise i got was turning the wireless off and on. Then the detector would shut down without removing the battery. I tried to reset, also didn't work. Very frustrating as i was on a good area and had driven 560km. Please advise as im at a loss. The detector hasn't been used more than 20 times, ie brand new.
  3. Published on Sep 30, 2018 by Nuggethunting (Rob Allison). “Here is a series of 3 short videos filmed in Arizona. Not all targets are gold, but at least one was a small gold nugget. I was using the Minelab GPZ 7000 Metal Detector.”
  4. Hii Good afternoon! would you help me regarding minelab Gpz 7000, whether it can detect other metals like silver, bronze, iron, relics, coins antiques other than gold?
  5. Published on Apr 12, 2018 by steelPHASE In this video I talk about the settings on detectors, aiming mainly at the Minelab GPX, SDC and GPZ series. My aim is not to tell you what settings to run, but rather give you the knowledge to make informed decisions on settings out in the goldfields. Now I am no Einstein so I do stumble and fluster in a few spots but I have edited in some text to make things clearer (hopefully).
  6. You have a new brother in the family. Special thanks to each of you that gave me advise on this decision. Extra call out to Brian for checking the Zed out for me in person. Lot of respect for the tight group we have here. Feel free to drop tips and hints in here or pm. I have read so many threads my eyes are bleeding lol. Come on 1 oz Nug. JW looking forward to nugget find sharing with you. Fred low and slow, Check! Nenad hit me up with more of those tips, so I can pay for this thing lol lol.
  7. Ok I am just passing this link on, as I found it of interest I feel others on DP perhaps may be interested. This is the first I`ve heard of such thus have no idea if it is for real but I hope it is so, we want lighter, smaller, even bigger coils for our Zs. and as we`ve experienced, with the aftermarket coils for SD-GPX series, increased finds, why not for the Z? http://golddetecting.forumotion.net/t25940p60-aftermarket-for-gpz
  8. Is there anyone out there who is willing to explain a little more in depth about the Sensitivity setting in the GPZ7000 and how works in relation to the other settings? Or perhaps point me to an existing discussion? I don’t feel I know enough to use it correctly and I know it's obviously important. Thank you in advance. David
  9. Evening, I hope this makes sense. I have a GPZ and an SDC and they seem to work pretty good near power lines. Plenty of auto channels to try and find a quiet one. As these are the only detectors I have ever owned I am wondering if other detectors - older minelab and other brands - are as quiet around power lines? Especially the really big trans-country lines. The reason I ask is that I found a nice looking area today that has been worked 'in the olden days' and in the short time available (20 minutes) this evening I found quite a few shallow rust nuggets, small/nice sounding
  10. This might have already been posted I figured it would be faster to ask. I have a potential client who is thinking of upgrading from a 5000 to a 7000. The concern is his knees and he thinks he'll have both knees replaced next Spring. I know a 5000 can be used with long shaft (I have customers with titanium knees), but the 7000 is a different beast. Anyone know for a fact if it is possible or should he stick with the 5000? It would be nice to hear from those who know from experience and have tried it.
  11. What ground balancing mode does everyone use? Only reason I ask, is I recently saw a video with Johnathan Porter on Facebook, , where he got a faint signal, that ended up being a nugget. He mentions if he was in auto, passing over the target 3-4 times, more than likely the signal would have went away. Now I hunt in auto, and I can't count how many times I've come across a faint target, and it went away after a few swipes of the coil. Now I wonder how much gold I've missed....? Dave
  12. I have noticed since I have been detecting in semi auto tracking, at the start of the day when I drop the ferrite ring on the ground, I can never hear the ferrite, but I do the thing with the quick track button anyway. My question is: Once I have set up the detector to the ferrite ring in semi auto tracking, if I NEVER touch the quick track button ever again, and never take the detector out of semi auto, do I ever have to use the ferrite ring again? It seems to me if you dont touch the quick track button in semi auto the detector always has the correct ferrite balance regardle
  13. What would the difference be on mineralized rocks and hot bedrock between these two detectors? Took out my 3k and had a hard time detecting due to these two factors. Hoping a new 7k would solve that issue. Thanks.
  14. Ok to kick this off i have just purchased a gpz 7000 spent my time with a sd 2000, gpx 4000 and a gpx 5000 all good machines if you ask me! But tryin to get a steady rewiew on a zed and bloody hell there seems to be two sides to this argument, A. The people who are dealers and trying to sell and in that case the thing has been sent from the gods to find gold!! B. Those who cant afford one and use the trusty 5000 and rag it down it doesnt perform aswell bad in hot ground misses nuggets just garbage bla bla What i want to know is a unbiased opinion on this machine from
  15. I used the GPZ 7000 in the Summer of 2016 (with yellow ferrite ring) but it had so much ground feedback in my detecting area that I sold it. I found that the ground noise on the GPZ was masking targets over the GPX-5000 running in fine or enhance gold timings. (Damp & salty highly mineralized ground.) Question: Has the latest software update with Locate Patch & Semi-Auto Ground balance helped significantly to handle this type of bad ground feedback? I am considering buying another GPZ 7000 this Summer to try again. Also, I found that the 5000 can match or beat the 7000 on larg
  16. What's the current feedback on the GPZ-19 coil? Good to have? Thanks.
  17. Heading to Rye Patch, NV next week with new detector. Very little mineralization out there and far away from any type of EMI. Looking to go as deep as possible. Reading the manual cover-to-cover but thought you all could provide some guidance on the initial settings. Thanks!
  18. Been wearing headphones while detecting for years. Now that we’re running the GPZ I see some respected GPZ users on here that run without them. Would love to ditch the ‘phones... Thoughts?
  19. I`ve been going back and re reading all the stuff I can find that JP has written about the 7000. One of his articles about going for bigger stuff he recommends General/ Difficult over High Yield/Difficult, and for the last few weeks that`s the setting I`ve been using. Still not setting the world on fire but got a funny one yesterday. This piece came through as that lovely electronic warbly signal I like and before I disturbed the ground I tried High Yield and could just barely hear it. Switched back to General and could hear it no probs. It only goes 0.35 g and it amazed me that General
  20. Just got a new GPZ-7000. Anyone use the GA-10 Guide Arm? Thanks.
  21. I have two WM 12's, purchased the second some time after the getting the first. The second WM, when turned, on will not work without the original being turned on, is this normal? do I need to do something different to make it work like the original?
  22. Hi all does anybody ground balance there machine as per instructions then leave the machine on the ground with ferrite under the plate ? I did this while i was getting the rest of my gear ready and it really made it quieter , in very hot ground. The machine was sitting there for about 5 to 8 min approximately.
  23. Does anyone think about going back to the first firmware update for the GPZ? Has anyone felt the audio is different and better results were had with the first update? The upgrade works good but I can't seem to get the audio where it used to be even though I wrote the exact settings down. Just curious if someone out there experienced the same thing. No problems finding gold, just doesn't sound right.
  24. I have audio problem with gpz 7000 and has failed to resolve even after updating the software... the problem started on its own and I resolved to update hoping it will go away but this far nothing is coming
  25. I posted about 6 weeks ago that my GPZ 7000 lost its threshold I sent it in and they replace the control box and that didn't fix it so I sent it back in and they replace the whole thing now. In the meantime I thought why don't I use the SDC 2300 and I found some gold with the backup
