Question about Nikon Cameras
When you dial in negative EV values, you're asking the flash to provide less light than the meter thinks it should. Since you're asking for less light on the subject, the same amount of light produced by the flash can reach a subject farther away.
Conversely, when you dial in positive EV values, you're asking the flash to provide more light. This reduces the maximum distance at which the flash can provide that much light.

I had the same problem. You locked your flash by mistake if you have a lock symbol on your LCD. Press the ON/OFF & Sel buttons simultaneously & the lock symbol will disappear. Then reset your unit by pressing Mode & ON/OFF simultaneously for 3 second & you are good to go!

I believe that there is a safety feature built in that if the voltage in the capacitor gets too large the flash will fire, to prevent damage, could be this that is faulty, if it is a new main circuit board is required.
