    Nikonos V battery compartment?

    Haven't used my Nikonos in years and am trying to open the bottom battery compartment without damage. The compartment loosens, but I can't get the cover to raise high enough above the baseplate to remove the battery holder. I'd guess the seal is holding it in place. Any suggestions? Thanks--jonpaul.

    Not familar with the V, however, the other models, you have to remove the lens first.

    This is how I did it.

    Couldn't find anything that addressed this problem; So: I placed a cold pack against the battery compartment screw-off cover, and after some time, the seal contractred enough and I could them screw off the cover and grasp it with my fingers, No damage, just patients. By the way: I had a difficult time finding a CR-1/3N battery locally; Amazon has them. - -Jonpaul.
    The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.
