When I first got mine, I inadvertently changed the settings without realising it. I still don't know how I managed to do it though.
As with all pin-pointers, make sure that you have a spare battery. My Carrot just sounds off all the time as the battery gets low and there is no prior warning. It went from good to useless almost instantly.
A good piece of kit that has worked well for me, with no faults.

Great bit of kit! Good choice
4 silver hammered coins - and still searching for more
Not everything is as young as it looks
Just switch it on from the box ?
Should I mess around with settings to start with

Yes it is easy to inadvertently change the settings when you're just trying to switch the thing off, but that's usually because you're too preoccupied with identifying what you've just dug, instead of concentrating on the button press. It only takes a few seconds to re-set it anyway.
If it starts getting too excited for no reason, as Bargeman says, just ground balance it and all will be well. But like any detector, do the ground balance in a 'clean' area with no signals.
The battery will also last much longer if you set it on vibrate only - you really don't need to make all that noise.
