I have not seen that message.

It may be that you have a short on the output.

The V8 Finder is based on the V7Hd so you can load channel lists for the V7 range into the Finder.
You can set up favorites lists on your V7HD and then load that into the finder and access those Fav lists by pressing the OK button and while the channel list is displayed press the blue button to access the sat / Fav lists.

Use an old firmware and do a flash.bin recovery

To do a flash restore:
Place a copy of the software on your USB stick and rename it "flash.bin".
With the usb in , power on while repeat pressing "Menu" on the remote control (you will need a V7 or Freesat RC).
The unit should reload the software.

Just press "Menu" on the finder key pad.

There is no remote for the Finder.

My finder does the same with newer firmwares. So - like cpr43 said - flash it with an older firmware, and all is well.

Do the same process using the file version you have when you did the DB backup

Since this is a signal finder I dont see why you need to load channels DB?? Can you re-scan your sats again?

Do you have a Freesat V8 Finder or a clone.

See the post on this at the top of the V8 forum.
