I have the above pointer and it has worked fine for the time I have had it which is about 8 months.
Lately it has become unpredictable. Sometimes, when in use it sounds off as if there is metal but there is nothing!
Other times it sounds constantly as if found metal but the sound is like you would hear in an ambulance!
Has anybody had any similar problems and if so how do you repair it?

Faulty or low battery
Faulty switch. High resistance lowering the volts
Fairly common for the switch to fail.
6 x 6 x 10 latching. ,6 pin for through hole. 4.5 mm spacing between rows and 2mm pin to pin.
You might get away in the short term by removing the rubber cover and a small squirt of contact cleaner
