    M8 freezes - conventional wisdom

    What is the conventional wisdom to cure an M8 freeze-up? I have had a couple of them, and I just took out the battery, waited a few seconds, popped it back in, and all was fine. A friend just had one, but it is still frozen after removing and replacing the battery.

    Thanks in advance,
    --Mark

    There is an internal battery too, which you can drain by taking out the battery and letting the camera sit overnight, on, with the screen on and auto-off disabled. If that doesn't work, he needs to send the camera in.

    My first M8 suffered the SDS a week after it returned from the update in Solms. I could still take a shot and see it on the LCD, but then could not re-call it or turn the M8 off. Taking out the battery and trying to drain the on-board battery did not rectify it. It had to return to Leica.
