  • help with new seesnake and scout

    We purchased a seesnake and scout a few months ago. Just opened box to use on a job. We tried it to practice but could not locate the head/camera even above the ground. Do seesnakes have a sconde included or do I need to turn it on or ???? Camera and DVD work fine but could not locate with the scout set to 512. Just seems like no signal. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You need to turn the sonde on when you are ready to locate. Which SeeSnake and monitor are you using?

      On the Mini/Pelican case monitor that Utah/Mark has so graceously let me use I would have to activate the sounde by switching the camera off.

        My sonde is controlled with the camera head light control knob on the monitor unit.

          The one Adam is using does as well. I'm sure he meant he turns the light to off to turn the transmitter on. Once the transmitter is turned on there should be an icon on the screen. If it is an older SeeSnake it may not have built in Sonde. If it is the Standard SeeSnake (pre SeeSnake plus) which had a Sonde added I think the power is always on and there would be no icon.

            Turning the sonde on and off is done by turning the light control all the way to the right (or was it left) anyways... whichever way it is you will feel a little click on the knob. You will also notice some wavy lines on the monitor.

            That should do it. Congratz on the purchase.

                By the way, welcome to the site. There are a bunch of us in Southern California that network here. Maybe we will see you at the PHCC-GLAA trade show next month.

                  From page 9 of your owners manual:

                  Activating the SeeSnake In-Line Transmitter
                  When using a SeeSnake In-Line Transmitter with the
                  LCD Monitor+DVD, the In-Line Transmitter is not always
                  activated when the system is ON.



                  1. When you are ready to activate the In-Line Transmitter,
                  rotate the Dimmer/Transmitter Knob counterclockwise
                  until it snaps into the transmitter position


                  NOTE! When the Transmitter is activated you will notice
                  lines of interference on the monitor and
                  the LED on the power supply will flash with a steady pattern.


                  2. When you are finished with the locate, turn the Dimmer/
                  Transmitter Knob clockwise to resume normal
                  camera operation.
