Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-600 TTL Flash
I have a new sb600 and it does not fire every time. I have changed batteries. I use rechargeables...and when the salesperson told me that it might be my batteries - I bought another brand of batteries. But after 10 or 15 shots in 10 minutes the flash fies only sporadically. What is wrong?
I know you mentioned rechargeable batteries, but you did not say was what kind. I have had my -600 now for more than two years and suddenly I started to experience flash failures, and the ready light would not come on to indicate flash is ready. I called Nikon 24/7 tech support and they recommended NiMH rechargeable batteries. (I was using regular alkaylines). Instantly my problems were solved, flash after flash it recycled instantly. In the manual they list the recycle times and the NiMH are the fastest. The tech said they were very good on power.I was skeptical, but he was right, it turnes out.
So, if you are not using NiMH for rechargeables, that could well be your problem. NiCads won't cut it!
