When I turn on my camera the blinking icon for the battery keeps coming on. I've changed the batteries, so I know its not because of the batteries. What else could it be?

Some batteries can emit caustic fumes when discharging heavily that can attack battery contacts in the camera. Try using a pencil eraser to scrub any metallic contacts you can reach in the camera and the battery terminals too.

Removing the top cover on my pentax 645n

The Pentax 645N is not a modular camera it has interchangeable lenses and uses film inserts. Removing the "top cover" should only be done by an accomplished repair person. I doubt anyone here would talk you through the procegure of dismantling a 645n. The Pentax 645 series of cameras is unlike a Mamiya, Hasselblad or Bronica which are modular cameras.

Camera suddenly stopped responding, maked grating noise and shows HI in window. wil not turn off.

If the 'H' disappears when the zoom lever is moved the camera is ready for use. If the 'H' appears often, it should be taken to the service.

If there is enough ambient light then the flash doesn't need to be at full power. The noise could be the lens focussing.
