Constant low battery

Post by MetalHead28 » Mon Mar 16, 2015 6:22 pm

Hi all,

Has anyone had any problems with the battery indicator? Despite changing batteries several times the display is constantly showing the battery icon with a cross through it. It's getting sent off this week sometime, but i'm just curious..

Cheers,

Steve

If you have tried some good batteries and the contacts are clean it sounds like a small fault with the machine. If it's an old machine and it's the only fault it would not bother me and just carry on using it. The battery indicator is only a guide.

If all else fails you could also try a full factory reset.

It's a Garrett 150.

Thanks for your replies, guys. Like I said, it's getting sent off tomorrow to have it looked at. I did actually find an old post on the forum where someone else had described a similar fault.

Fingers crossed it's repaired and returned soon - I've got the bug.

I take it you are not using rechargeables as these are only 1.2 volt instead of 1.5 volt

Will work fine though

Just heard from the engineer - it was down to faulty electronics and would have been in excess of £150, if it wasn't under warranty :-SS
