Maybe try cleaning the contacts? Check that the contacts on the flash aren't damaged.

There is some annoying noise coming out everytime i use the sb-600 flash!


If it is a whining noise that increases in pitch, that is the capacitor that powers the Xenon strobe that is in the flash. The whine might be a little less with fresh batteries, but it is normal and unavoidable.

You could use flash. Depending on distance, you might want to go with one of Nikon's add on flash units. SB-600 is very cost effective.

You could also buy the excellent f1.8 50mm lens that Nikon makes. It's about $120 new. It's a prime lens (no zoom/telephoto) but it is one of the best lenses Nikon makes. It works very well in low light. There are also some other large aperature lenses, but cost goes up as f goes down!

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

    I have just recently boughta Nikon D60 and currently own a Tamron 28-300 lens and a 90 macro lens. I think that I want to buy a strob after a workshop I went to this past weekend. I want to be able to...


    The SB-600 will probably do everything you want.

    One caution: To use flash off your D60 you're going to need either an external sync cord or a wireless controller. The SB-800 (and the current SB-900) can be used as a controller, the SB-600 can't. But the controller goes on the camera, so you'll end up needing two flashes.

    Sb-600 not beeping, images completely black (underexposed)


    Series of images is the KEY. If the Power you set the SB-600 is HIGH it will take a LONGER time to recycle than the SB-800. If you try to take a photo before the SB-600 is ready you will get a dark image. The randomness you get is due to the time between shots. In general try to run remote flashes at a lower power so they recycle faster.

    I like the SB-800 because it can take 5 cells. 5 cells can really make a difference in the recycle time (faster) The SB-600 only takes 4 cells so it is slower.

    Noise while zooming with sb-600


    sb-600/800 make a distinct motor-spinning noise when zooming, this is normal. Any grinding/clicking noises are not normal.

    Check that all the batteries are functioning properly, and that they have been inserted in the proper direction.

    Nikon SB600 flash behaving strangely


    I have sent my SB-600 to Nikon twice in the past 6 months to resolve this problem. They have fixed it both times, but never told me what the problem was. I've had it back for exactly 1 day now, and it's started back up again already. If I receive a solution (or replacement), I'll let you know!
