Does it totally power up to the main detection screen or does the display momentarily light up and then go dark. The second scenario is normal depending on the power source. The first scenario isnít.

When it powers up all the way during charging, are you using the same USB to AC power block and the same outlet as when it acts normally?

Powering fully up when you plug in the charging cable happens occasionally, and it's normal. Mine does it about 1 in 10 times. Just turn it off.

The screen momentarily going bright, then dark to the charging screen is also normal.

My first Legend system box would act normally when the charging process started......momentary lighting up of the screen, screen goes dark, the charging icon appears top left of the screen. Sometimes during charging, like an hour later, it would just power on spontaneously....... and I would have to power it off manually. In the middle of the night, that was annoying. That system box was replaced by Nokta Makro under warranty for that issue and two other power management issues.

I just shared what my machine did sometimes.
Is this normal?
Who is to say?
Yeah I turned it off. Duh!

Someone questioned Equinox 800 iron bias etting in video above.. post #264.
So I retested Eqx with default iron bias FE=6 park 1 (which is what was in detector in previous video) and max iron bias in park 1.
Hereís video.

If you happen to have a 15 inch truck rim laying around could you put a mercury dime under it and see if anything you have will pick it up? Lol

TN, that was a good catch you made on that test. Being a legend owner I'm glad your finding the flaws,so they can be addressed and fixed .Thing about these updatable machines is they can fix that.. thanks for the video

Video showing possible problem or glitch.
Having to do with adjusting tone break using 60 tones.
Enjoy.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fU1dsqGs_CY

I checked tone freq setting using 60 tones. Appears to work as advertised in manual.

PS
What I am seeing.
Could this be what is causing some speakers to blow??

This behavior has been confirmed by another Legend user. Youtuber Iffy Signals.

Hereís another video confirming tone pitch option, adjusting works as advertised. This video done to eliminate confusion.

Edited ó Another video coming early tomorrow
Reading around some folks may be confused about tones on detector.
I still have to do a few experiments.
Then I will show some video explaining.
Stay tuned.

Video I have done. Giving recommendation to manufacturer. Concerns use of tone break and being able to hear/not hear ferrous and or nonferrous coming under tone break setting.
