FK919 - metal detector (2853 views)

I've assembled and soldered circuit and have checked and all components appear to be correct, however when powered the LED and buzzer go on, as manual states, however turning VR1 does nothing. LED and buzzer remain on.
Any ideas of what could be wrong?

Hi, I am experiencing the same problem with my metal detector kit as vin. The metal detector keeps buzzing and the LED remains on with no change no matter how I try to turn the VR1 potentiometer. Bring any metal near the induction loop does not change the tone or the loudness of the buzzer. I have checked the copper wire connections between the loop and the board with the multimeter and all the components values and placement, which are correct. The only possible explaination why the kit does not work is due to a flawed circuit. Any ideas on what could have gone wrong with the metal detector kit?

Any update to this? I just built one and I am experiencing the same error. Light on and buzzing. I checked the wire configuration and made sure the magnet wire was clean at the solder point. Diodes going the right way, all resistors in their proper locations... etc. Not working.

Well, it's kind of working, but the buzzer and light never go completely out. When you dial down VR1, the pitch changes, and it will go up in pitch when brought near metal. Noisy all the time though. I would prefer if it went quiet unless there was metal detection. Any ideas?

Some progress with the problem, I am interested to know if the metal detector is already functional, some pictures of the device would be grateful. I hope you have solved it and will soon respond positively.
