Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash

1 Answer

Flash failure due to dome use.

I saw your response to jshade66 on Jan 15th. I was not aware of the problem with using the dome. Do you know of any other way to get a soft bounce, economically, and not blow the flash?
And, yes I am a wedding photographer.

Doam light stays on

Hi. I don't know exactly what kind of vehicle you are dealing with so I can give you an answer but it may be generic in content. Usually, if a dome light stays on, it is due to a malfunctioning door jamb switch. It could also be due to a interior switch position on the dome light itself not turning off or stuck in the wrong position even if it has been switched to turn off. The last idea I have maybe a crossed wire or short causing the light to stay on due to a alternate power source that could be battery powered with key off. In any case, you are going to need a wiring diagram of the vehicle circuit involved with the dome light to help you better find all the components and what power and ground should be present. Check out the chilton's books in the library or, if you would like to send me a response with the year, make and model, I may be able to send a pic of the wiring diagram. If you happen to own a Ford Ranger.... the most common cause for this problem is the drivers door jamb switch. It is located inside the drivers door attached to the door lock actuator. They tend to get sticky and eventually stop working altogether. Good luck and let me know if theres any more help needed.

I have 14 camera's plugged in to this system, when I plug the 15th in, I loose a camera, it doesn't matter what port I plug this camera in, nor does it matter ho many camera's are plugged in....

Hello mrfredlockey,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question:
Running these units on passive video power is what is killing the last camera.
The system is rated to run 15 cameras on passive power, so long as you have a true 110vac on a 25 amp circuit.
If you are running 110vac on a 15amp and truely only get 105vac from the circuit; it will dump one of the cameras due to power loss.
Pick one of the cameras that is close to a seperate power source, and wire it to independant power. That should give you the power you need to wire up the 15th camera. Another idea is to switch them all over to a 25amp circuit instead of a 15amp.

Have a great day!

KE850CP40-7-V10i-JAN-19-2008 solve Deat Problem. But how to use it?

To enable the connection between the pc software and your phone, you need to first go to settings on the KE850, Connectivity (scroll down to see this option), USB Connection - and change this setting to Data Service. For simple upload of files, eg. mp3 or jpg, set this option to mass storage.

Installing the downloads in xp home edition

The only thing that comes to mind is you have some antiviirus/firewall software that will not allow it to load.
Depending on what type is is it can be blocking it without telling you or allowing you to pass the program.
This is a common issue with this type of software.
you can disable it but how depends on what it is.
if you can disable it then run the update manually.
start/windows update

Same Problem Again - Mega Raid.... Unknown Error


The title of your post suggests that you have "Maga RAID" errors. Maga RAID messages would be in line with issues on the LSI PERC sub-system.

However, the extract posted in your suggests network problems.

Any number of physical to driver and configuration issues can result in network problems.

Try the basic checks;
1. Change or try a known patch cable
2. Run "ping" test to a known good system connected to same network switch or direct connect with a "cross-over" cable and check for dropped connections.
3. Is the NIC and switch set to Auto-Negotiation or static at 10, 100 or 1000Mbps speed
4. Can you try another switch
5. Check and load correct or latest manufacture's drivers
