The Volume control changes the loudness of target signals. Use the Volume button to adjust the Volume Level. Each press of the Volume button will advance to the next Volume Level from low to high. Once maximum Volume is reached, pressing the Volume button will return to the lowest Volume Level. The Volume Level indicator on the display shows the current Volume Level. Each bar represents one level.

The Sensitivity button The VANQUISH Series detectors are highly sensitive and have adjustable sensitivity. Setting the correct sensitivity level for individual detecting conditions will maximize detection depth. Always choose the highest stable Sensitivity setting to ensure optimum performance. Use the Sensitivity button to adjust the Sensitivity Level. Each press of the Sensitivity button will advance to the next Sensitivity Level from low to high. Once maximum Sensitivity is reached, pressing the Sensitivity button will return to the lowest Sensitivity Level. The Sensitivity Level indicator on the display shows the current Sensitivity Level. Each bar represents one level.

To Adjust the Sensitivity Level
1. Hold the coil stationary, then use the Sensitivity button to increase the sensitivity until false signals begin to occur. 2. Reduce the Sensitivity Level just enough that the false signals disappear, by pressing the Sensitivity button (if Level 2, 3, or 4 is selected, press three times to reduce the sensitivity by one level). 3. Sweep the coil over a clear patch of ground, and reduce the Sensitivity Level further if any ground noise is encountered.
Sometimes, excessive noise is encountered whilst detecting. This can be caused by environmental electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources such as power lines, mobile phone towers, or other metal detectors. If noise is a problem, try the following steps in order until the noise is eliminated. 1. Move away from local sources of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI). 2. Restart the detector, and wait for the automatic Noise Cancel process to complete. 3. If restarting the detector does not eliminate the excessive noise, then try reducing the Sensitivity Level
Automatic Noise Cancel
VANQUISH Series detectors have an automatic Noise Cancel process that occurs every time the detector is powered on. It calibrates the detector so that excessive noise is not experienced. For best results, the coil should be held stationary just above the ground until Automatic Noise Cancel is complete (indicated by two large dashes displayed on the Target ID Number field).
