There are ways to get into the backdoor of the computer on the M8....but it may be as simple as the battery needs replacing. The batt for the computer part of the radio.

Hi Neptunes,

I posted a request about a problem similar to yours earlier, and i found out both after dissasembling the transmitter and from the folks in the forum there is no battery inside the transmitter.

If you found out other information please let me know i am also interested to fix my error.

"Back Up Err"

Thanks and Regards

Sorry about that.....It's been a long time since I read that info, somewhere, maybe it was the older versions of the M8...
It was a long time ago...
