    I have done this all (with teh Batteries) but the problem still exists.

    It is not possible (by pressing the "Zoom" switch) to change to the automatic mode.

  • hoiram Jan 23, 2009

    I am unable to activate the power zoom function.  Pressing zoom does not make the "M" disappear. The focal length remains at 14.

    Same as jimdadma: the power zoom is stuck at 14mm and I cant get the M to go away

  • jimdadma Feb 19, 2009

    Thanks...it worked...the wide angle adapter was down and fooling the lense

  • gramdinah Mar 07, 2009

    I can manually zoom but can't turn off the M so that auto zoom will work. I don't even see that on the CSM. This is all I see on the CSM. Wireless remote flash mode, Sound monitor, Auxiliary ready-light, LCD Power Illumininator. I do not see menu choices for Wide-Area AF-Assist Illuminator, Standy function or Poiwer zoom function. Holding down the zoom button does nothing.

I struggled with this one but then, on the basis that if all else fails read the manual I found the answer. It's soooo simple. The wide-flash adapter is set. That's the little pull-out screen at the top of the flash which folds down over the flash-head. If it's pulled forward it activates the wide angle setting automatically. Push it back in and you'll be fine. tony k

    I had tried that and it didn't help...I then went to the manuel and saw that I should put my camera on P mode and then reset the flash using the buttons noted in the manuel. It worked!

Just spent 2 hours trying to resolve this problem so top marks to the guy who said:
"Simply push the Wide Flash Adaptor fully back into the flash head until it clicks and BINGO. That's was all that was causing it to remain on the 14mm wide angle setting.

You can re-set your flash by turning on its power then remove the batteries for a few seconds and replace them. Also, if have not done so switch to NiMH rechargeable batteries. Costco=20 bucks

Shooting with a Nikon zoom such as 18-200 with a Nikon SB800 flash on a Nikon D300 body. I make an exposure of a person and the result is exceptable and then I zoom to the whole group of five people and it...


Depends on the zoom length. If you check exposure at zoom 18 mm then zoom to (lets say) 100 for the final picture the flash will zoom concentrating the flash power as well; the flash gets stronger. This is all explained in the SB-800 manual. On a zoom such as the 18-200 the more you zoom the smaller the f/stop. You are better off with a zoom that maintains its f/stop through the entire zoom range. That way when you check exposure at 18 mm lets say f/2.8 then zoom in it will maintain the same f/stop. Myself I am not a big fan of zooms especially ones when zoomed change to a smaller f/stop.

I am using a Speedlight sb-800 on a Nikon D200. I cannot get the Zoom M function to change to Zoom. Any ideas?


Take flash out from hotshoe.
Can you set flash zoom manually?
When using Nikon Nikkor zoom & zooming, does flash zoom or hear motor sounds from head?

Auto zoom only works when on the hot shoe of the camera. You also need to make sure that its in the righht mode (make sure that above the word Zoom on the display it doesn't have a "m").

Oh and of course you have to have a CLS (Creative LIghting System) compatible camera.

Flash is not working for a nikon sb-600 speedlight

Zoom range 14-17mm


make sure the diffusion dome and the built in wide angle adaptor are off. If the diffusion dome is on, it will only work as 14mm and 17mm without the diffuser but with the wide angle panel.
