Default Fatuba 6XAs help

I am new at this computerized radio stuff and am having great difficulty in understanding the instruction booklet on this Futaba 6XAs transmitter. I have tried to input the percentage sign on my elevator and ailerons. After putting the amount of percentage in the radio, I turn it off and then go back in to see if the settings are still there. They not only are no longer there, but only one aileron works too. So I start all over only to find out that after I have done it all again, I still end up with the same results.
I am sure that it is not a problem with this brand new transmitter. The problem is me in not quite understanding where I am going wrong.
After I put the percentage sign in the computer radio, am I to lock it in by pressing both data buttons or both mode buttons or what?
This is really beginning to try my patience and am getting very discouraged. Any help would certainly be appreciated.

Try exiting out of the menu system or programming mode (or whatever you may call it) before turning the power off. I don't have any first hand experience with the 6x but I do have a 9c, and I alway exit out of programming before powering off. Good luck!

Once you are done with your programming you have to push the 2 mode buttons at the same time to finalize the changes.

ptgarcia and beardking,
Thank you very much for your help. I did exactly what you said, I came out of the program first by hitting both mode buttons after my inputs and then I shut it down.
That did the trick. When I powered back on and went into the controls, everything was just as I had programed it. Now I'm tickled pink!
Thank you.

Just so you know, you don't have to power off to keep the settings. Getting out of the program functions by hitting the 2 mode buttons at the same time locks them in for you.
