Repair Services in London?!

Post by aaalex2014 » Wed Jun 01, 2016 10:41 am

Good morning everyone!
I have a problem with my Garrett 2500 Gti
It has stopped detecting while i was hunting and i don't know what is wrong with it.
It shows empty batteries even after i changed two sets of brand new ones.
I tried changing all the settings but nothing made any difference.

Right now i'm looking for someone to fix it for me but i couldn't find any repair shop in London area (used google)

All i could find was very far from me and they require to send the detector by post. The thing is i don't feel comfortable to send £1000 detector to someone i don't know..i might not get it back.

Can anyone please direct me to a place where i can get it fixed?

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Alex

Hello Alex

There are two repair centres for Garrett in UK, us & Pentechnic, we handle all warranty & Pentechnic handle out of warranty, speak to Dave on 01785 714373, he should be able to help you but it will mean sending him your control box/handle plus coil, he's safe !

Thanks alot for the reply Nigel. It is very weird that in a such big city like London you cannot find a repair center.

One big business opportunity here :)

I will give Dave a call right now...

Thanks again!

Alex

Hello Alex, Hopefully you've checked this but if not, check the battery connections for uniform tightness/fitting. I had a 'Ground-Hog' that relied upon a series of 'pin' connectors on the battery box which caused this type of problem. Hope you get it sorted out ::g Regards ss47
