Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash
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.
