V Grip Servicing & Battery removal tip's

Postby eddie122 » Thu Jan 17, 2013 9:19 pm

Hi can anyone let me know if there is a servicer for the V-Grip in the UK for a quick turn-a-round. I just can't seem to get battery out without taking off the tripod and removing from body to give it a shake to release it. Any tip's much appreciated.

Eddie,
V-Grips can only be serviced in Denmark or Japan.
The description sounds like the spring in the unit may be exhausted or somehow hung up on itself. Have a look with a Pen Light, you may be able to fix it yourself.
