    I have the same problem; just started happening last night.  I know the batteries are good.  The flash ready light comes on, I try to shoot, and the flash goes off, but is really underexposed.  If I wait quite a while, 30 seconds or more, then I can shoot one properly exposed, but if I wait just long enough for the flash ready light, the next 3-4 are going to be underexposed.  I have fresh batteries in it and the the additional battery chamber.  I use Sanyo Eneloop batteries (Love them).  Thanks so much!

    Do you have fresh batteries? I know this can sound like a dumb question to ask but it has to be asked. Sorry, I don't mean to offend.

The problem is typical of not having enough power in the battery. Are the batteries fully charged? Are you using Alkaline batteries? If so, get a good brand of rechargeable NiMH batteries. I recommend Sanyo Eneloop. It costs more, but it's worth the trouble.

Also, I hope you got the 'quick refresh battery adaptor' with the SB800. You can put an additional batery in this chamber and attach it near the main battery chamber after pulling out the cover. This will certainly improve the flash recycling time.

I have a SONY KF-WE50 rear projection tv, a few weeks ago it started to turn the pic and sound off while the green light was flashing around 30 times. After the light finished flashing both the picture and...


the green is the reboot process and is normal.
the red light is an error code indicator.
count the blinks of the red light...it cant be 30 times (I think)
it will blink a sequence, pause, then do it again for a total of three times.
count carefully, it gives you three chances to catch the number it is blinking.

Press Menu button

togle across into sub menu
togle down from four times to Initialize
togle across again to the sub-menu
togle up from cancel to OK
press center button to accept the OK choice
Screen changes and so press okay again
It should restart the camera
Opening on the 'Clock Set' screen
togle down to cancel and use the camera and make sure that you have the camera to flash, if it works try again in the Auto function.
If it is still not working do not worry follow the steps again two or three more times, As this is generally a software error message and not a hardware malfunction.
If it is working then don't forget to set your Clock.
