Hi,

Can anyone suggest where I can obtain a copy of the user manual for a
very ancient Micronta 4001 metal detector that was sold in the UK many
years ago by Tandy stores?

Yes, I know it's out of the Ark but at least it'll be useful for
keeping the grandchildren quiet for a few hours. ;-)

TIA - Dave

You might want to have a look at;

http://support.radioshack.com/productinfo/ProductResults.asp?Name=Metal_
Detectors&ID=009003

See if it's one of the manuals listed.

Thanks Sean, but that was the first place that I looked, without
success, hence my posting.

Forgive me for asking Dave but what is it about this particular model

that needs a manual to use it? Most of the cheaper end models I have
seen seem pretty intuitive.

Yes, it seems to be working OK but I'd like to get clarification of
the function of a red push-button mounted on the carrying handle. This
seems to set the detection threshold and affects the adjustment of the
'Discriminator' control.

Quite simply, I'd rather like to RTFM. ;-)

There's a manual for the Micronta 3001 and 3003/4003 here
http://website.lineone.net/~johngl1/page9.html

They might be similar enough to the 4001 to help you.

Dave-

If you search by the catalog number instead of just the "4001", you may
find more information.

As others suggested, the 4003 manual might help if you can't find the 4001.

I have the Micronta 4003, catalog number 63-3003. The red button is for
"auto tune", used to return the meter to zero when it drifts. It is first
set to zero with the coil in mid-air, using the Tune contol.

I have one. The most useful thing about the manual is the Complete circuit diagram. Ill try to get it scanned in the next few days and archive it somewhere.

It's likely after 11 years (original post) to be buried in landfill, so
perhaps if you post this, someone can build a replica and use it to find
the original (and fix it).

Hi Dave,

Did you manage to get a copy of the manual? My children have just bought the same medal detector from a charity shop and we have no idea how to use it.. Could you send me a copy of the manual of you have one? Or give me a few pointers for how to work it? We turn it on and it just makes a loud noise! Thanks, Pam

Are you still looking? My son had one about 25-30 years ago and it is
still used very occasionally for hunting pipes in concrete floors etc.!
I could have a look for the manual, we normally keep them all, but
finding one so old is the problem! The red button on the handle is the
key control for zeroing the sound as I recall. C+

Charlie and Pam-

You may be more likely to find a manual for the Micronta 4003. It is
probably close enough to the 4001.

The 4003 is a 63-3003 part number. I assumed the 4001 might be a
63-3001, but the manual I found did not have the red button used for
auto-zeroing.
