  • BORJA

    Do you have stlill elecrtonics from this broken scubatector? Maybe U want sell it?

  • My scuba is constantly bleeping when I turn it on before putting it in water…. Any ideas

  • On assembly they pinched the coil wires. You now have a constant false as the wires have more then likely separated at the pinch when they slid the board and battery in do to all the exes coil line used for assembly.

    The problem is this happens in the tube and you can not easily reach the damaged spot or spots. Take it apart and turn it off and on with the board out you may be able to get it to make a contact while in different positions, like with a set of headphones when the cord starts to fray, get it just right and music again. If you get lucky you may then be able to slide it back in without it losing contact in a different position and you also have to get it back in without pinching the exes line again. They also react differently under LCD/different lights, take it outside and see what it does.

    They do tend to take in water and that could be your issue. might as well clean off the oxidation on the board with deoxit while it is out. Under the black plastic there’s also a gravity switch that if it comes unglued from the angle they have it set at it will jiggle and the solder can brake on the thin legs holding it up. Not much holding it and it already has a tiny BB rolling around in it.

    Last thing I have noticed with these little hand held snorkel detectors is people are lazy and some even fat. yep. it’s true. Let’s say you are not actually underwater with it but on land on your hands and knees when you go to get up while holding the detector on the handle and pushing yourself up from the ground you can crack them. I picked up one from a shady ebay seller that sold a broken one as working and that is exactly what he did. Small cracks on both sides from it flexing.
