Will not detect

Turns on with fresh batteries and does the usual series of beeps. All the buttons work and the settings can be changed but does not detect anything at all on any setting.

Re: will not detect

It sounds like you could have a bad coil if you know of anyone with a Bounty Hunter detector than just try swapping out the coils and see if it takes care of the problem. If you need to you can order a new coil from the manufacturer or on eBay. If this is not the problem than you should contact the factory (First Texas Products) about repairing it. If it is less than 5 years old they will repair it for FREE, even if you are not sure how old it is they have no serial numbers on their products so they can not tell how old they are so they will still repair it for free if you tell them it is less than 5 yrs old. Call them first before sending it in, 915-633-8354

I hope this helps, Dutch

We need 2 know what 4 m o a means

MOA is the abbreviation for Minute of Angle, which measures 1/60 of 1 degree. If you want all the technical jargon and math that involves, this link explains it all:

But when you're talking about rifle scopes, here's what you need to know:
Adjusting the angle of your scope by 1 MOA will change the point of impact by about 1 inch at a distance of 100 yards. So 4 MOA is roughly 4 inches over on an object viewed at 100 yards.

Usually, the windage and elevation adjustments on a scope will be about 1/4 MOA, or about a 0.25 inch change over 100 yards.

The circuit board that holds the batteries for my ETX is corroded and I need a new one. How can I get one?

Is the problem that you left the batteries in the battery compartment? (a no-no, BTW.)

If so, you might get away by cleaning the board--if the circuit traces and components haven't been damaged.

Try mixing a tablespoon of backing soda with a cup of warm water. Using whatever applicator seems appropriate--a Q-tip, or small brush--clean the corrosion from the board with this solution. Wipe and dry thoroughly.

Inspect the board for broken circuit traces and damaged components.

If nothing is obvious, put fresh batteries in and try it--it will work, or it won't.

If it does, congratulations. If it doesn't contact Meade customer support at this link:

Good Luck!

Wont detect

IT COULD be a few things:
1) check all connections.
2) You may just live in an area w/ lots of electric/magnetic interference, this is not rare...have you tried bring it somewhere a distance away from your home?
3) These machines DO NOT operate correctly on any batteries other then alkalines...if u use even a Heavy Duty battery, you will get the same chatter, slightly or non detecting results...U MUST USE ALKALINES, my reccomendation is only duracell or the bunny rabbit that doesnt stop alkalines.

Nikon az1 auto level

There are 2 allen screws on the fish eye bubble that can be adjusted to correct that problem.

First level the instrument;

Then turn 180 degrees

Adjust the vial until the bubble is half way from where it is back towards the inner circle.

Relevel the level using the foot screws

Then turn 180 degrees again (back to where you started)

It should be mostly fixed, however if it is not just repeat the steps above; it gets exponentially better everytime until you can no longer detect the error.

How to cahnge the battery on a sentry safe

There is a small opening on the front number panel of safe. Use a small hex screwdriver or pin to insert into opening. It will open up the front panel (slide panel to right to take off) showing you 4 AA batteries. Just replace and close panel. Very simple to do. I wish the manual show me how. Instead of trying to figure it out for hours.
