Re: my 45CL-1 AA battery polarity not marked on the...
I am not acquainted with the 45CL-1, but as a general rule, if the contacts for one side of a battery is a spring and the other end a solid piece of metal, the negative (-) end of the cell should contact the spring and the post (+) end of the cell should go to the solid metal contact.

v Notes on continuous fl ash photography • To prevent the SB-700 from overheating, allow it to cool down for at least 10 minutes after 15 times of continuous firing. • When continuous flash firing is repeated in quick succession, the internal safety function adjusts the recycling time by up to 15 seconds. If flash firing continues, the thermal cut-out indicator appears on the LCD and all operations are suspended. (0E-31) Allow it to cool down for several minutes to disable this function. • The conditions under which the internal safety function is activated differ depending on the temperature and the SB-700 flash output level. Operation B B-8 Slide the battery chamber cover open while pressing the battery chamber cover lock release. Insert the batteries following the [+] and [-] marks. Close the battery chamber cover. STEP 1 Inserting the batteries Operation B B-9 1.5 V alkaline AA battery 1.5 V lithium AA battery Rechargeable 1.2 V NiMH AA battery Suitable batteries When replacing batteries, use four fresh AA-type batteries of the same brand from any of the following types: • For minimum recycling time and number of flashes for each battery type, refer to "Specifications." (0H-27) • Alkaline battery performance may vary greatly depending on the manufacturer. • 1.5 V carbon-zinc AA batteries are not recommended. v Additional precautions regarding batteries • Read and follow battery warnings and cautions (0A-19 - A-22). • Be sure to read and follow the warnings for the battery on the section, "Notes on Batteries" (0H-9), before using the battery. • The recycling time can be longer when lithium AA batteries are used because they incorporate a function that suppresses the output current when heat is generated in the batteries.
on most devices the negative of the battery goes against the springs and the positive goes against a metal plate some times the negative goes agains a sping loaded plate and the positive goes on the fixed plate I hope this helps
Metz 45-40 consist of 6 nos of NiCd - AA size batteries connected in series.
These battery packs can be rechanged by resoldering new set of AA size rechargable Nicd battries.
Care should be taken not to short circuit the cells when disassembling and assembling the cells.
Keep a note (sketch) of the connections of the cells, specially the longer connecting metal strip and the polarities of cells.
re-solder the new set of AA size NiCd Batteries.
If the old wires were corroded, use new wires'
If the connecting terminals also corroded' clean it.
If it is severely corroded, get it plated prior to fixing for better performance..
There is an charging indicating lamp which also control the charging current of the batteries.
check its connections and solder it if required.
I wish you got the answer for your problem.
I have a circuit diagram for the 45CT-5 and the flash unit as well. The voltage is 360V DC, which goes straight across the flash tube. The top pin is positive, when the notch in the socket is on the right hand side, i.e. towards the back of the flash.
I'm also looking for a circuit diagram for a 45CL-4, if you know anyone who has one.
Originally the 45CT1 had high trigger voltage. In the production period Metz improved it to a much lower voltage release circuit. Metz homepage (metz.de) holds the information, from which serial number on have 45-CT1s low trigger voltage. However, even the high trigger voltage was lower than 200 volts, thus safe for your Fuji.
