Have you looked in there to determine if there are bare wires, or anything that might short out?  If not, remove the back covering and add the backing of your choice.  Mine has had a gaff tape backing for several years...on another I put down double face tape and a business card...let your imagination go wild!!!

It's happened to me plenty of times. I'm so disappointed with the move from the more rugged and serviceable style cup that they used to use. Sorry to say that, in my opinion, these cups are not nearly as worthy of the price being charged. I'm glad you brought this up, Matt. I guess this is something I've wanted to get off my chest for a while. I've actually made a point to snatch up the old-style cups whenever I see one used.

i've had the same problem. recently bought the PSC version of the cup and it appears to be the same as the old-style remote audio ones. the pins don't poke up through the backing and it has no gaff tape on it like all of my remote audio cups.

When were these cups purchased? If the metal covers have been replaced by the stick-on covers, I didn't know about it. I'll find out and report back.

In the last 3 years or so I have two of the newer ones and two that are about 10 years old the older ones are much better quality and have held up much better

I have a few and the newest of mine are fine, but I have one from maybe around 2007 that's doing this. I keep it as the backup, so I don't use it as much. I also use it to power a mixer rig, so the battery lasts all day. Not something like a single NP powering a 788 and some wireless where I need to swap batteries every few hours.

Me too. My NP1 also no longer sticks into the slot and stays. I have to gaff tape that down as well. 

 

The cable that comes with it from my Edirol to Distributor is also broken. 

 

Something's up with the construction of this very expensive battery system. Pretty annoying.
