Problem with my MD3040

Post by Pantaguello » Fri Sep 13, 2019 1:32 am

Hi all, I recently got the md 3040. Only one big issue with this, it's shuts off when I plug the coul in. So it doesn"t work at all. Sometimes it shuts on but then while it works it shuts off again. All of this with new and tested batteries. It doesn't do anything when coi
l is inserted before startup. Any solution or idea anyone??? Bought an tx 850 and and a All sun ts180 too...still waiting for customs to release.

These cheaper Chinese machines are a case where (sadly) reliability and usability are severely limited.

We strongly recommend that if you are starting off in the hobby that you buy a well known detecting brand. If you can’t buy it from one of the specialist detecting retailers then it probably isn’t worth buying. There are lots of cheaper brands but the purchaser is highly likely to end up very frustrated with the ability of the machine. Sorry :(
