Hi, does it have a red triangle in the middle. If it does you must have done a reset, so leave it for a bit as its up dating and can take a while. Sometimes it can freeze, power off and try resetting again. There is a reset button on the side(use a tooth pick) of the box hold this then plug the power back you should get a menu up, clear cache and reboot. See if this works

Hi
No it is a blue circular symbol that is spinning around
The led display also says the word boot on the front of the box

I have tried the restore option but each time I turn it of and back on it comes back up with the same screen

Ok, get a tooth pick unplug the power at the back hold the restore but in and plug the power cable in at the same time. Hold the reset until
The menu comes up the clear cache and reboot it.

Thanks for the advice but even with the restore button held in and powering it of and on I can't get rid of this screen with the android
I have tried it a few times now

Did you unplug the power, how long has it been like this. Normally this reset the box, then you should reboot. Do you have anything plugged in the USB ports, if you have unplug and try again. If you go on YouTube there's videos on this, how to factory reset my T8 droidbox. Good luck and fingers crossed.

No joy I'm
Afraid
It always goes straight to the android loading screen with boot on the front of the box
I shall leave it overnight on this screen and see if it's any different in the morning

Failing that have you any idea who I should be contacting next as I only bought the device two weeks ago !!

Strange, if no joy in the morning use the live chat function on our site(the link is on the front page of this forum). It the little greenish box saying chat or message just click on this and wait.
Can I ask is your Internet on and the router showing no faults....good luck

What new software?
There hasn't been any software update for the t8 model for a few years.
Did this problem just happen or did you do anything prior to it occurring?

Format your sd card to fat32 and extract the recovery image zip to the root of it. Recovery image:- https://1drv.ms/u/s!AlRdlhGu3fjihyDEPDFsxYcuTrgB r c image is from the dbx t8 firmware d/l link on the forum. Then you can format the sd card again and follow the steps to install new firmware from same forum link.
