I'm not too familiar with the M8. Is it a electronic "button" that turns the radio on and off? If so, you'll prabably have to send it in. If it's a "mechanical" slider switch, the contact might have become disonnected from the little slider switch thing. I've had this happen to my R1, except it was stuck in the "off" position. If your confortable with taking it apart, it could be a very easy fix. Maybe just requiing the contact to be slipped back into place on the plastic slider, or maybe a small mount of contact cememt to make it stay on the slider. But I would only take it apart if your convortable with doing something like that. And when you do that, talke your batteries out so you don't accidently short something out w/your screw driver if you should have to take out a circuit board.
