    My LCD flashes consistently. The flash seems to work, but I have had some problems with overexposure recently.

    Same thing, getting random flash discharges (full power) as well.

    Same thing, getting random flash discharges as well but I believe the discharge is because the shoe mount is flexible on my D-50.

I have a sb-600 flash. It works fine but it has


Try doing a reset - press the "Mode" and "On/off" buttons together for a few seconds and you go back to factory settings. Sounds like you got into some funky mode, assuming everything else is working ok.

My SB-600 Just quit firing... :(


It maybe because it overheated he flash tube, nikon flash guns use a thermal cutout, to prevent overheating, usually after approximately 30 / 40 shots, in quick succession.  It should start working again after it cools down.
If not you may need to get it checked at Nikon Service Centre. Cheers Ian

Using SB 800 flash Master with 2 SB 600 as slave


Hi Frank, I use the same combination of the exact three flashguns you have. Works beautifully. I mount the sb-800 on my camera and set it to Master Mode (press and hold the center button till the menu comes up, select the master). Set the other two sb600s as slave. Please make sure the channel is set the same in all three flashes... when positioning the slave flashes, make sure that sensors on the remote will recieve the light from the main flash. For maximum coverage I use the sb-800 with a diffuser in bounce mode. You will be amazed at the quality of interior phots you can get with a 3 flash combo.

My sb 600 fires with the camera but it seems not illuminate


Definately a settings problem. The camera will only syncronize on one specific speed. Youe best bet is to use auto. For manual, you'll have to set the shutter speed at the sync speed.

Flash Sync Speed
  • up to 1/250 X-Sync Speed
  • up to 1/8000 FP High Speed Sync
  • Red-eye reduction
    Red-eye reduction with slow sync
    Rear-curtain sync
    Slow sync
    Front-curtain sync (normal) Flash Sync Modes
  • 1) i-TTL: TTL flash control by 1,005-pixel RGB sensor, built-in flash, SB-800, SB-600, SB-400: i-TTL balanced fill-flash and standard i-TTL flash
    2) AA (Auto Aperture-type) flash: Available with SB-800 used with CPU lens
    3) Non-TTL Auto: Available with Speedlights such as SB-800, 28, 27, and 22S
    4) Range-priority manual flash; available with SB-800 Flash Control

    D80 and SB-600 FV Lock doesn't work anymore


    In whacky situations like this it is always best to re-set your camera and flash settings. Somewhere on your D80 you will find two function buttons with small green dots next to them. These are the resets. Push both in at the same time until the display LCD flashes.. The camera is now reset to default settings.You will now have to re-set your FV button to the custom setting you had it at before.

    Also, reset you flash by turning on the power and removing the batteries and re-install them.

    SB-600 will never be on ready


    The capacitor may be weak, or there is a problem at the component level that is not allowing the inverter to reach full voltage.

    The flash will need shop service.

    Sb 600 under exposure.


    You probably haven't changed the camera and/or flash back to TTL mode from wireless mode.  Make sure they are both set to TTL, not commander mode and you should be fine.  Note that the LCD on the flash will indicate which mode it is with a little graphic.  On the D70 you had to switch between TTL and Commander mode to set it up to work using the built in flash as the commander, so you just have to switch back.

    Speedlight SB-600 Display flashing.


    My SB 600 is doing the exact same thing. I used Nikon's online support service and this is the response I got: "I would try doing the 2 button reset on the flash and then see if that helps. Also disconnect any battery packs you may have connected especially if its a third party battery pack. If none of the above work then please service the speedlight" Sounds like they don't know what it is, either. I tried the reset to no avail. I'm not sure I want to send it in to have it fixed, since it does seem to be working. But you're right, it's annoying.
