Default imax b6 charger help

so i have the imax b6 charger to charge my lipo batteries. it works great but i have a problem.

i have a 8000 mah lipo battery but the charger has a capacity limit of 5000mah
so when the battery reaches 5000 mah it stops charging.

is there any way to change this setting so i can fully charge the battery?

i have searched google and the owners manual with no luck

Default

In User Set Program, there's a capacity cutoff. 5000mah is the default, Navigate to that parameter and increase it as needed.

It's covered in the manual, I found a copy here (was slow to dnload) -
