    Same problem - can't open battery compartment. Finger depression way too small, plusit must be stuck or stripped. My 6'5" son-in-law couldn't budge it either.

    I had to gently pry it off with a razor blade. Minor scratches but very hard to see them.

Had same problem. Try pressing the heel of your hand on the battery compartment lid and rotate. Worked for me.

    Try a balanced pressure, not too hard, not too light. I practiced several times and now can open the compartment easily.

This is ridiculous. How can RCA be so ignorant? That, my friends, is why Apple is a kick company. And (most of) the others are just jackasses.

I couldn't open the battery compartment because it stacked. I put around all the compartment groove a little bit of machine oil and left for 10 min. After this I managed to shift the compartment cover and taken it off with help of my swiss knife blade (just touch).

Rear Compartment Lid
The rear compartment lid can be opened by operating the rear compartment lid release switch, located on the instrument panel, or by using the manual release located on the rear compartment lid. Battery voltage is supplied to the rear compartment lid release relay through the Main Power fuse. The roof and door module (RDM) receives the rear compartment lid release request via the rear compartment lid release switch signal circuit. The RDM grounds the rear compartment lid release relay coil when a release input is received through the instrument panel (I/P) switch. Grounding the coil causes the rear compartment lid release relay to energize, providing power to the rear compartment lid latch assembly through the rear compartment lid release actuator supply voltage circuit.
As an alternate method of operating the rear compartment, an emergency release handle is accessible from within the rear compartment. When the handle is slightly pulled, it will provide a ground for the bed cover release relay which will cause the actuator to operate and open the rear compartment lid. If the handle is pulled further, it will mechanically open the lid, so even if the battery is discharged or there is an electrical concern, the emergency release handle will mechanically open the lid.

As an alternate method of operating the rear compartment, an emergency release handle is accessible from within the rear compartment.

Open battery compartment

Spray WD-40 around the compartment door and try to let it trickle inside the compartment. That should break the acid corrosion buildup that holds the door from opening.

Cannot open battery compartment on Sony Cybershot rmt-dsc1 remote

@ Frans Bedford-Visser
On the right side of the battery compartment you can see some vertical plastic lines. Pull those towards the compartment. Simultaneously open the compartment as indicated by the arrow. It will open. Took me a while to figure it out but it works.

Cannot open the battery compartment on my suunto x6 without breaking it....any ideas?

  • Turn the Suunto over to view the backside. Insert the quarter in the coin slot located on the battery compartment cover. Turn the coin counterclockwise to the "Open" position marked on the back of the case.
  • Remove the battery compartment cover. Remove the old battery from the battery compartment. Make sure the o-ring and all surfaces are clean, dry and not damaged. Do not stretch the o-ring!
  • Place the new battery into the battery compartment (negative side down, positive side up). Make sure the o-ring is in its place, as to keep the Suunto waterproof. Place the battery compartment cover back onto the backside of the watch.
  • Insert the quarter back into the coin slot and turn the coin clockwise to the "Close" position marked on the back of the case.

  • If this doesnt work take to a jeweler who has tools.

    To unload the videocassette from the cassette compartment, the camcorder needs to be connected to a power source (either an electrical outlet or a charged battery). Please refer to the following instructions. Connect the camcorder to the power source or insert the fully charged battery pack, and then slide the EJECT switch to open the cassette compartment cover.
