****, SR5 issues

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Davidoc, Sep 17, 2004.

  1. So, I figured I'd change the battery in my stingray5, so I turned the bass over, and pryed vigorously at the battery release tab... ****, something's wrong, it's supposed to open easily... I can't get the durn thing open! Help!! The tab is jammed! oh no! It used to not be this hard!!!
  2. maybe you're weak? just kidding.

    ...since it's plastic don't try to force it(duh),wiggle it around a bit and than try,whatever you do don't put so much force that it cracks,cause than it'd be...cracked.
  3. On a related note, when the battery compartment got damaged on my (now gone)SR4, EB sent a replacement for free.....give em an e-mail :)
