Please help - New Meter on GT - It doesn't read 0?

Post by David&Beverley » Wed May 03, 2017 3:10 pm

Hi i've just got a minelab sovereign XS-2 meter installed on the GT after buying second hand online.

When i switch on the machine it seems to sit at 125 out of the 180 scale - is it me as i was expecting it to read 0?

There is the calibration dial at the back that drops it a bit or increases it to 138 again without passing anything infront of the coil. Obviously when i do pass something infront of the coil it reacts however and increases etc?

I've heard about trying it on noise cancel 2, no real change. Noticed the sensitivity switching off and out of auto can flick it to minus 500 briefly?

Really confused can anyone help or provide some input.

Many thanks,
