Frequently Asked Questions
1. I CANNOT GROUND BALANCE MY DEVICE. I TURN THE GROUND BALANCE KNOB TO MAXIMUM (10), DROP SENSITIVITY TO HALF-WAY BUT NO SUCCESS. WHY?
You cannot ground balance because the ground you are on has high iron mineralization. First, turn the GB knob to the ideal level 6 -7 and sensitivity to maximum. Then, turn the Iron Audio to minimum and select Search 2 mode. If during your search, you want to detect ferrous metals, after switching to Search 2 mode, turn the Iron Audio to maximum first and then start lowering it gradually until the iron tone is not heard.
2. MY DEVICE GROUND BALANCES AT LEVEL 8. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
You can search this way but you should keep in mind that as you turn the ground balance setting towards the maximum (10), the device will start losing depth for some non-ferrous metals except for gold. If you are looking for non-ferrous metals such as silver, copper, bronze, brass etc. it is recommended that you leave the GB knob at the ideal level 6-7 and then gradually lower sensitivity to eliminate noise. When searching for gold or iron, the level of the GB setting will not affect depth so you can turn the GB knob towards the maximum if needed instead of lowering sensitivity.
3. THE DEVICE RECEIVES A LOT OF NOISE DURING SEARCHING. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
If the ground balance is at the ideal level of 6-7, first try eliminating the noise by lowering the sensitivity. If you lose too much depth, it means that the ground you are on has high mineralization. In such a case, you can eliminate the noise by using the Search 2 mode.
4. THERE IS NOISE - OTHER THAN TARGET SIGNAL OR INTERFERENCE -COMING FROM THE DEVICE. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
You may not have not tightened the shaft completely during assembly. Check the shaft and the connection points.
5. HOW WILL I DECIDE WHETHER THE GROUND I AM ON HAS IRON MINERALIZATION OR NOT?
First, you will not be able to ground balance. Even if you lower sensitivity, the device will continue to receive ground noise. In such a case, turn the iron audio to maximum and listen to the ground noise. If the noise is a low, ferrous tone we can say that the ground is iron mineralized.
