Follow this link to see how to move the plate that is blocking the release lever:

This solution is moving the plate which is blocking the lever with a thin screwdriver, thus enabling the lever to be pulled...it will ALWAYS work once you understand it.
It does not depend on the cable or charging the battery.

However, it is tricky and you kind of have to do it by feel...so it can be frustrating if you don't have an idea of what you are trying to achieve.

I've drawn the diagram the best I could, but it could be clearer...good luck!!!
