 Cry Hello. Does anybody know how to repair my Compass detector? It won't turn on, no sounds no smells, just dead as a door knob. Ugh. It takes 3 9V batteries, and kills two of them in just a couple of hours. (The third stays good, just kills 2 of the batteries). I'm a rookie, anybody can chat this a bit? Thanks Smedley

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Oh, man, you couldn't have picked a worse spot. Normally, I know people everywhere who can help with troubleshooting but not in that area. Eugene52 is up in Oregon.

It's just so difficult to troubleshoot a problem long distance by forum posts.

   Two batteries for the Detection circuit and one for Audio.  Have you checked out the Battery Wires ?  Connectors.   Photo's are good.

Yes, I meant Gold Scanner Pro...  Embarrassed

Hello thanks for the response. Yes, I've checked out the battery connections - no obvious shorts, no corrosion, doesn't smell bad or burned inside. Drains 2 of the 3 batteries pow, pretty fast. I imagine it's the 2 batteries for the detection circuit... just a guess.

I don't know of any detector repair guys around here either. Good gold and historical sites for detecting though in my area. ...
