I just received two of these today. One is fine. The other shows LOW BATTERY indicator, even though I've tried 2 new sets of batteries. Any suggestions?  :'(

Never mind. Weird. I think the problem were the 2 new sets of batteries. I tried another set and it's fine. I think it was the batteries. Whew!

exactly the same issue here with 600EX (1st gen). got 3 of those, 2 are fine, one is bad ... refuses to work and just shows "low battery indicator" most of the time. i can get over it by opening/closing and re-inserting batteries multiple times. it is definitely an issue with that flash unit/electronics or contact-problem ... not battery-related. no idea what it really is and out of warranty by now. :-(

If it requires a set of batteries that are super fresh, don't discount that there is a problem, and then miss your return window.  I have a battery tester that tests at various loads to see how good my batteries actually are.  Even the lower voltage Eneloop batteries drive a flash very well, so your batteries would need to be pretty weak to get that error.
