Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-600 TTL Flash
My flash does not turn on and I have tried to reset and unlock. I'm not if I am doing it correctly, so any help would be great.
I had the same issue, the unit would not turn on.
The issue was coming from the battery compartment. the battery were a bit lose and I had to bend out the contact at the bottom of the unit to make it work again.
The 2 battery with the + facing up were the problem.
I have inserted a small screwdriver to bend the contact upward a bit and the unit is now working fine.
The batteries don't make noise anymore when I shake the unit, it was make a bit of noise before.
Hope this help to fix your issue.

Use Fine Grit Sand Paper and rub all the shiny contact points including the battery. Works magic!

Remove the batteries. This will reset everything. Re-insert, Turn the unit on, wait for the ready light, then select your flash setting option. Test flash it a few times. Be sure the flash head and diffuser is capable of sliding with the zoom lens focal length and not blocked by anything like tape or a diffuser.
