    Default Help needed fox LXR's

    Hi all my 1st message on here so be gentle ....
    I recently bought some 2nd hand Micron LXR's.
    I've used them several times and they are superb but i'm looking for a copy of the operating instructions. I've looked online and can't find any to down load...
    So if anyone has a set of instructions they don't need or could somehow e-mail me a copy or if you know a site where i can download them from that would be superb... regards Steve


    I'm Of course happy to pay any costs ....

    If it stays on that long its got a fault im afraid. The timings of the latching led are set electronically by the components on the pcb and are not adjustable by the user. It probably has a faulty capacitor.Darren at Specialist tackle at Romford MAY be able to repair it but the pcbs are covered in resin making repairs very difficult. By all means try a new battery first but it is unlikely that a low battery is causing the fault you describe. Good luck.
    For cheap Bosch Professional powertools pm me.

    what kind of instructions are you looking for exactly?

    TBH chuck out, put rod on buzzer, turn on with switch, sit back and await noise!

    Ok, my idiots guide to Lxr's part 1

    (firstly before anybody asks, the mark on the speaker was made by a mad woman with a knife not me!)



    Starting clockwise from the On / Off switch :

    L.E.D - these come in 4 different colours Red, Green, Yellow, Blue. Latches solid on forward motion of the wheel (i.e. a take) then flashes latched for 20 seconds after the last beep occurs. In the event of a drop-back the L.E.D will flash latched for 20 seconds and the tone of the buzzer will be in a lower octave.

    V - is for Volume Control, quietest at the 12 o'clock position through to it's loudest output setting at the 10 o'clock position.

    T - is for Tone control, lowest octave at the 12 o'clock position through to it's highest octave output at the 10 o'clock position.

    S (1) - is for Sensitivity Control, this adjust's how sensitive the alarm is in relation to how much the roller has rotated. It has 5 setting postions, at it's most sensitive (12 o'clock or position 1) it will sound the alarm once for every 10mm of line movement. At it's least sensitive (6 o'clock or position 5) it will sound the alarm once for approximately every 60mm of line movement. So each "click" round from position 1 adds roughly 10mm of line movement needed in order to make the buzzer sound.

    S (2) - is for Sensitivity Control, this adjust's how sensitive the alarm is to line vibration. The 12 o'clock position is it's least sensitive, round to the 10 o'clock position being it's most sensitive.

    So basically, if you have S (1) at 12 c'clock & S (2) at 10 o'clock and a Carp farts near your rig 100 meters away you'll know about it. I tend not to bother with the S (2) vibration setting too much as i find it pretty annoying esepcially if it's windy.

    I hope this is of some help to you, if i've missed anything out i apologise!

    Cheers lee ...it was the 2nd S that was confusing me ... so its a vibration sensitive switch thats why leaves hitting the line are driving me mad ... thats now switched to off....
    You did forget to mention give the 1st sensitivity button a rotation over half way and it gives a different tone for drop backs .... seriously thought a big thanks ...
