Pentax 645 battery holder

Scott Pickering "25 ASA" , Jul 10, 2006; 01:07 p.m.

I'd thought some 6x7 owners in here would also have a 645. Anyways does anyone get frustrated replacing batteries in the original Pentax 645? They are easy enough to get out, but putting the 2 back in that go in the inner most slot drives me nuts. I had to use a wooden dowel to push in the battery to go onto the contact button. I used quite a bit of force. If I was out in the field doing this I would never get the inner most batteries in. That contact button seems to keep the battery from slotting in like its supposed to. Does anyone else have this problem?

Hi Scott:

I take the batteries out and put them in frequently and have never had any difficulty, so I'm mysteried as to the source of your problem; but here's my procedure, hope it helps: the first battery is inserted at an angle so that the tip of the battery can be used to depress the fexible metal contact, then push in at he other end of the battery -that does it for me.

I've never had problems of this sort. Strange.
