Can't get cap battery cover off to replace the batteries

I have slid back the battery cover so I can replace the batteries and I get it about 1/3 of the way open exposing about 3/4 of the first set of two batteries only to have the battery cover stop. It is most likely catching on the remaining two batteries that it hasn't passed over yet. I haven't looked insided of it mainly again because I can't get the battery cover off, but I'm guessing there is too much upward pressure on the batteries and they are in the way of the battery cover coming off.

Any solutions?

My SB 700 shows temperature after few shuts and when it's twisted


From the SB 700 manual page b8:

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.

Closed mobile


Reem Elife, try these options;
1) Remove the battery from the phone, then put it back and try to open the phone.
2) The phone battery might be discharged completely. Charge it for 30 minutes and then try to turn on the phone.
3) Maybe the battery is dead and need to be replaced.

1 Does it give the normal little charge up whine when you turn it on?

2 Are the battery terminals clean?

3. Double check with new out of the packet top quality Duracel or Energiser batteries. Don't waste your time testing anything like this with mediocre or average batteries.

4. If you have to ask if you could fit new capacitors yourself, the answer is DEFINITELY NOT. These caps are not like on a computer motherboard: These can stop your heart.

5 Some of the big camera shops can give you a free repair quote, or if not will deduct the cost of a declined quote from the price of a new flash.

Anyway, good luck.

Nikon sb-600


Does the flash turn on when you push the battery door down? By push it, I mean HARD... If so, you might be able to cure this by getting some jewelry screwdrivers and flexing IN the metal contacts in the battery compartment door to increase the battery contact.. just be careful not to break the metal (but if you do, a replacement battery cover is about $16)
