I have the dowsing machine, I've had it for a while now. And every time I turn it on, it doesn't do anything. No screens change, no green lights appear, nothing. What am I doing wrong?

It's not on the bottom.

You hold it in your hand and lasers shoot out if there's something nearby.

He's holding it, but it doesn't do anything. Isn't there meant to be a display with a red light or something?

It's just as terrible as it sounds. Your character holds these 2 tiny magnetic rods in his hands and runs around until you see a Green or Red laser right in front of him.

If you go back to the beach where you first got it, then run around a bit you should see it light up. There was three or four items there, good place to learn how it works.

If there's no hidden items around, nothing happens.

Lights only happen when there's a hidden item somewhere.

Hmm, I'll try keeping it out for a while and see if anything happens. Probably user error. I just assumed it would have the bottom screen like the old ones.

Little light beams shoot out of it and it makes noise when you are near something.
It changes from white to green to yellow to red with an X pattern when you're getting closest to it.
It looks like he/she is holding two little guns on the TOP screen.

No bottom screen business with the dowsing machine.
