A coil discharged & XP Deus doesn’t see it. What is to be done?

There are cases when the XP Deus doesn’t see the coil. For example, if the latter was completely discharged before. What is to be done if the XP Deus doesn’t see the coil.

I will provide an example. The XP Deus of my friend had been lying around for a long time. The remote control and coil had been fully discharged. But we successfully charged them, switched the XP Deus on and… the detector didn’t see its coil!


We turned the machine on and off (many times) – no result. We deleted the coil and reentered its serial number. The remote control didn’t see the coil, as if it hadn’t been present at all.

The XP Deus has no hard reset – neither on the coil nor in the remote control. We tried to reinstall the software (version 3.2). The result was the same: the coil in standby mode and the machine didn’t see it.
The solution came by chance… We put the coil on charge and switched the remote control on. And the XP Deus saw its coil at once! We took the coil off the charger and then it was operating as usual.

The XP Deus is an excellent device. By the way, do you know how to make two detectors from one XP Deus? Have you seen an impressive fake of the latest XP products? But what I like the most is one photo of the XP Deus where the metal detector shaft is made of wood. Great! Good finds to everyone!

  • Bought a 5 year old used xp deus with a 9″ and 11″ coil that had being left uncharged. Charged every thing up , ws5 headset the remote and 11″coil worked great. 9″ the coil no so. The ws5 showed 2/3 charged on coil but would give sound when passed over metal. The remote showed no coil. Did what was suggested. Boom the remote picked up the coil. Shut every thing off turn it back on the remote connected with coil again. Whaa I now have a 9″ coil. Thanks sooo Much for the great info.

  • I have an ORX XP and today I update version 1.0 to 1.1 and after I finish updating my RC it does not turn on. Is there a way to restore factory settings? On the other hand, I also can’t get the USB port of my CPU to recognize the RC. I hope to solve it with your help.

  • Hello Juan Ricardo… I had today the same problem. You were able to solve? If you solve
    can you tell me how please?

  • Thank you for this. I got out in the field and switched my Deus in but ‘no coil’ message. I tried everything – deleting coil, then adding coil, switching on/off etc but nothing. Luckily I had my Nokta Simplex with me as a backup machine.

    I got home and read this article. Plugged my charger into the coil and switched on the remote. It said ‘no coil’ for a couple of seconds before connecting straight away! I then unplugged the charger and turned the remote off. I then switched the remote on and it all connected. Thank you – you saved me sending my Deus off to get looked at. Much appreciated, John Taylor.
