    After not using my NIKON SpeedLight SB 800 for a couple of months. it turned on but did not flash. I could change the settings but no flash. Changing the batteries I noticed a white residue on the battery latch. I cleaned it and changed the batteries then it just would not tern on. I have not been able to turn it on since then.

    Sometimes if keep messing with it (shaking, cussing, and holding my mouth in different positions) it will eventually power up. Once the connection is made it works fine. I just dread the next time I have to replace batteries.

    Be sure to check and see if the batteries are in corectly and also if the battery are clean and are not bent down to where they don't make contact.

    If this doesn't fix your probelm then the probelm could be a fuse onn the main board or the cpu is defective .

My sb will power on but i have no flash even when i hit the test button. I noticed it got a little warm then shut down when the problem first occured. Is it fried or fixable?


Are you using fresh batteries? Are they rechargeable batteries if so do a battery test maybe a battery is weak. With fresh batteries it still does the same thing then call Nikon 1-800-645-6689

I have a Nikon D40x with a Nikon Speedlight SB-800. The speedlight is not working. I have the camera on, new batteries in the speedlight and speedlight on. Not powering up. Is there some secret battery...


With new batteries in the flash, and it being off camera what happens when you press the test button. If still it does not flash call Nikon 1-800-645-6689

Nikon Speedlight SB-27 TTL... Problem


This flash unit will flash the red light until the capacitor is charge. Also the mode your shooting will flash. What exactly is flashing?

Ready light on my SB-800 speedlight


put in a fresh set of batteries. The ready light won't turn on until the flash capacitor is fully charged. And if your battery is weak, it can take very long (minutes!) to fill the capacitor. You still can fire the flash even it is not ready, it will just dump whatever power it stored in the capacitor.

Nikon SB-800 Defect


Have you tried other batteries?

If one cell has died, there will be enough power to power up the flash, but not enough to charge it reasonably fast. It may also stop the other cells charging up properly if they are charged together. I've had this problem with poor quality rechargeables before. I think flashguns put pretty heavy demands on batteries.
