I am using a nikon D200 with a sb800. The flash is firing ok on TTL and the camera is set on 'P' however I am getting a dark picture every tme. The built in flash works OK It appears the flash/camera...

This is an excellent flash, very powerful and compact and actually more flash then what was available when the D200 first cam on the market. The two will work nicely together and I think the problem is that the SB-800 can be programmed within itself. This meaning with some cameras you program the camera for the flash output with the SB-800 you can program the flash as well. It has some excellent features like Flash value lock (which I think is set to slightly underexpose from what your question is asking) it also has Flash color information and a built in Flash compensation. Possibly the compensation or value lock are set to underexposure. I'm saying this over the camera setting because you stated that the internal flash appeared to be okay, check your SB-800 settings

Dropped it. Doesn't turn on, and hear a rattling noise when I shake it gently. Is there a most likely broken part? Is self-repair possible? What does Nikon charge for repairs

At best you have probably broken the flash tube itself. If you are confident you can fix these yourself, nikon will sell you the replacement tube, cost is around £20 for the part and a couple of hours work. However there is a serious risk to your health due to very large voltages in the capacitor in the flash so unless you know how to handle this I wouldn't bother. Nikon will charge around £150 to replace the tube and service the flash. All of this assumes its the tube, if its something else then Nikon will not sell you the part because they say it goes against their health and safety guidelines, i.e. due to the high voltages, however I could never figure out why they sell the tubes because you have to open the flash to repair? Go figure...
I would be interested in buying it you decide not to reapir. Thanks Mark
