Gold Bug Pro problem

Recommended Posts

I have a problem with my GB Pro and I can't figure it out. The problem manifested itself once before but I don't remember just how it was remedied (age does this). Seems that when I push the RCA jack from the ear phones all the way in the detector slot the sound cuts out. If I pull the jack out one notch the detector wotks perfectly. I checked the wireing inside and all is intact. It's not the ear phones acting up as I swapped them out with my sons set and the problen persists. I'd like to hear if anyone else has had this problem and if there is anything that I can do to solve it.

tom if you have old style mono phones your jack is not making the correct contact...if they are monos buy a mono to stero adaptor at r-shack...sometimes there is excess plastic on the rim of the jack that can keep your jack from seating properly...sometimes it is a problem with internal wiring of the detector...
