Defective Vallon

Post by Wigeon »

Having patiently waited to get back on my fen edge Palstave site, I was delighted to receive a Vallon for my birthday in late February. However the fen was still far too wet and rutted, so continued patience was required.

A few weeks ago it all started to come right, so off we went, full of high hopes. Then the problems started.

To cut a very long story short, it would not work in 'Normal' mode but was ok in 'Mineral' mode.
I tried every which way to ensure that it was not operator error, but to no avail.

I then realised that there was a fault with the headset too ;;z . These detectors are designed for use by young soldiers, not grandads with hearing loss, so the headset is essential for me.

The Vallon is so different from other detectors that an experienced user of other detectors but Vallon novice, has a steep learning curve. I was anxious not to be a pain to the retailer by contacting them if it was me that had got it round my neck, so persevered by trial and error in an attempt to eliminate possible causes one by one.

The retailer sent me a replacement headset, which rectified that problem, however the other could not be resolved.

I am particularly grateful to our members Iceni and Jarrett for their patience and help, whilst I tried to resolve the issue.

Bottom line is that the Vallon is defective and has to go back. As I am complying with government advice and STAYING AT HOME, returning it may take some time. Small unimportant problem though.

Fiona at Rays-Tek Surplus Supplies (retailer) has been as good as gold and will replace or refund once I can return it. ::g

The Palstave site has been there for 3,000+ years, so will still be there after next harvest.
