Deus coil restarting

Post by topsy » Fri Aug 24, 2018 2:30 pm

Hello Everyone,

Has anybody had any experience of their coil 'restarting' whilst detecting.

My 9" coil started to do this a little while ago, it loses connection with the controller and the headphones, then the blinker light on the coil starts flashing and it re-connects.

At first I thought it was a defective battery in the coil, however I have changed this, and it still happens.

Does it sound like the coil is fried, I am using v5.1, and the Deus is just over 5 years old.

Thank you in advance, Topsy :-/

It happened to me yesterday v5.1 HF elliptical coil. No idea what's going on. It's not all the time it's just random .

Sounds like v5.1 is fried rather than the coil. I'm still on v4 with no issues!👍

Same here, I could see this coming and stated so in public.

Folks always seem to rush in where angels fear to tread.

Happy Hunting,

Jerry.

Could you re-load the V4 program ? I never had any issues with that program.

Hello Again,

Thank you for all the advice, I have re-installed V4.1, and will try it out over the weekend.

I shall update everyone with the outcome later.

Many thanks for the comments, Topsy ::g

My hf round coil did the same, as well as not pairing properly. It was on v4
Now Just back from regtons and on v5. It was a faulty battery, apparently there were a few
It seems ok after 3 hours today.

Thanks I will need to bring it back to the dealer to check if that is the case. Also my coil is on 4.1 (as stated on the box) my detector is 5.1, maybe this could be a problem as well.

Not on V5.1 but the coil restarting happened to me a few times when I first updated to V4.1 which I'm still on, but has been fine ever since. But yesterday the Controller suddenly decided to switch itself off for the first time ever for some unknown reason, I switched it back on and it was fine. Bloody new fan-dangled techno gadgets, never had that problem with the dowsing rods. :D

Ah, right, yes, so he did. Don’t you need the controller to do the up-date ?

Haven’t got mine now but have read some about the up-dates. Remember someone being advised he’d have to borrow one to do it. ?

The shop updated for me the detector, but after that I bought the HF coil which I believe is still on 4.1. Maybe this is the problem. I'll go to the shop tomorrow for a re-update of all the components.

That's called withdrawal symptoms, it's common to many addictive things :D

Hello again,

I went out detecting again today, having re-installed my machine back to V4.1.

I am very pleased to report that the problems I was having with the coil restarting whilst using V5.1, have completely disappeared.

Thank you to everyone for your input over the issues I was having, Topsy ;)

I’m very pleased to hear that Topsy. I’ve heard a couple of similar complaints about the up-date causing problems. They were resolved the same way as yours. Never heard if they tried the V5 again though.

By the way as I know there was a famous Topsy in Uncle Toms Cabin, are you female ?
