Handheld rotary lasers of all brands read the rotating laser beam as a flashing light. Since flashing lights (common on construction sights, airports, hospitals, or other areas) flash at a fixed rate, the flashing lights often trick the laser detectors. In this case detectors will often display random signals and/or tones, depending on the frequency and position of the flashing light relative to the detector. If you are operating the laser in an environment that will expose the detector to other flashing lights as described above, set the laser up in a location where the detector will not see the offending light. Rest assured that this behavior is common to all lasers and is not in any way exclusive to DeWALT units and is no way an indication of a quality issue with the DeWALT lasers.
