IF YOU HAVE THE BATTERIES , YOU CAN SEND THE UNIT TO THE BATTERY MANUFACTURE FOR REPAIR .
BE SURE TO GET THE ADDRESS OFF THE WEB SITE AND ALSO ENCLOSE THE BATTERIES WITHTHE UNIT TO SHOW THEIR BATTERIES DID THE DAMAGE .

A new main circuit will have to be re programed and you have to sent it to NIKON

Are the sb-900 and the sb-800 heads the same? I have a sb-800 and I want to buy teh coco ring flash with the sb-900 adapter, are both the same, will it fit the sb-800?


No it is not the same. the SB 900 is 25% bigger.
I just got a Coco ring for my SB 800 (I bougth the one for the SB 900) and it is big. But I just filled the empty space with hard foam and works wonders. I can post a photo if you want.
By the way I have a D 700. It migth fit different in other cameras.

Why is my sb-800 melting my batteries?


Thre is a non-repairable short in the capacitor charge circuit that puts a big amp load on the batteries.

May be repaired by Nikon service... but the electronics contain high voltage. Do not attempt to repair yourself and I wouldn't trust it even if Nikon repairs it. Why risk burning your camera and equipment!?!

--sorry--

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

    Battery damage


    No choice but to send it back to Nikon. Same thing happened to me (note to self: NEVER NEVER NEVER use Costco/Kirkland brand batteries again). It ran about $90 to fix it. Cheaper than a new one, though.
