SOURCE: red light doesn't go off on stanley studfinder

Hi Laurie,

I think you might have confused the calibration set up in the first step of the directions. This must be done each time the unit is powered on, placed on a different wall, or whenever it is providing ambiguous indications. For you convenience, I have pasted the operation manual below. You should download and review the entire manual - free of charge here.

1) Hold the Stud Sensor 50 flat against the surface making firm contact.

2) Press in and hold the activation button. The green
and red LED's will light. When the red LED goes off,
the unit is calibrated
. Keep holding the activation button
during all of the following procedures.
Note: While calibrating, the Stud Sensor 50 must not
be placed directly over a stud, dense material such as
metal, or over a wet or newly painted area, or it will not
properly calibrate. If the Red LED stays lit, move to
a different location and try again.


2) Slide the Stud Sensor 50 slowly across the surface
in a straight line. As it detects a stud edge, the red LED
will go on.
Use the handy pencil notch located at the top of the
unit to mark the stud edge.

3) Repeat the above steps from the other side of
the stud. Coming from the opposite direction, mark
the other edge of the stud. The midpoint of the two
marks indicates the stud center.

Cautions on Operating
The proximity of electrical wiring or pipes to the surface
of the wall may cause the Stud Sensor 50 to detect
them as studs. You should always use caution when
nailing, cutting or drilling in walls, ceilings and floors
that may contain these items. Always remember that
studs or joists are normally spaced 16 inches or 24
inches apart and are 1-1/2 inches in width. To avoid
surprises be aware that anything closer together or of a different width may not be a stud.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Try using a magnet instead. Move the magnet back and forth against the wall, slowly... until it sticks to one of the ferrous screws hidden in the sheetrock. These hidden screws are holding the wall board/sheetrock onto a stud.
Magnets! Free stud finder! and no batteries to replace!

I have a Stanley IntelliSensor Pro. It's worked fine for a couple of months. Now it won't calibrate - it just flashes quickly calibrating, and alternatively flashing the centre (bullseye) ci


I hate to tell you this as you are an electrician but often it is best to look for the simple solution. My Stanley IntelliSensor Pro was doing the same thing here is the answer:

Red light would not go out and beep would not stop when moving finder across wall.


I had this problem as well. The solution was to replace the 9 volt battery that it runs on. The beep was much louder and it calibrated correctly. Apparently the old battery was enough to make the beeping sound but not strong enough to emit the energy required to penetrate the drywall.

Please advise me to how to use and how it work as there are no instructions in english in leaflets enclosed in pack


Hold the unit flat on the wall. Press and hold the side button (you will hear one short beep). Holding it to the wall, slide the sensor left or right, when you get near a wall stud, the lights will begin lighting up, when centered on the stud, the top light will be lit and it will beep continuously.

How to operate the Stanley Stud Finder


Hi Gene,

  • Place the unit flat against the wall.
  • Press and hold the button.
  • The LED will come on for a second or two then go out.
  • Slowly move the unit laterally until the LEDs come on again.
  • When they top out, that is the beginning of the stud.
  • When they start to go back down, that is the end of the stud.
That's about it..

Best regards
Mike
