Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash

1 Answer

SB-800 Going Crazy

Hi.  My unit (shelved for several months) is not working.  When initially turned on, nothing works.  Then it won't turn off w/o removing batteries.  When turned on again and mounted onto my D40, it keeps flashing continiously.  Tried resetting everything.  Tried unlocking.  Nothing works.  Will not sync/talk with camera when remounting and it is not flashing continiously. Unit is almost new having shot about 200 frames.  Time to send for servicing?  Can you help me please. Thank you. Jay

    I got the SB-800 and I got the same problem. The moment I shake it softly when it's attached to my D200 the flash and infrared fire.
    I don't know what to do.
    It would be helpful if someone came with a solution that does not require bringing the flash to a servicecenter. :)

Trimble juno sb won't turn on


I have the same problem with my Trimble Juno SB. It just happened today. But when I plug mine in to a power source the LED is green. But when I hit the power button it flashes red one time. I have tried soft and hard resetting it. And I even tried the 'restore factory settings' reset. Nothing works, It just stays off. The screen never comes on.

Did no one else read the question? It isn't for a laptop. It is for a Trimble Juno SB.

Sound like to me you got a problem with the capcitor inside the unit, if its under warrenty it will need to be serviced. If its not I ould be checking capcitors inside to make sure there not bulging leaking or otherwisen ot wroking correctly.

Speedlight SB-600 Display flashing.


My SB 600 is doing the exact same thing. I used Nikon's online support service and this is the response I got: "I would try doing the 2 button reset on the flash and then see if that helps. Also disconnect any battery packs you may have connected especially if its a third party battery pack. If none of the above work then please service the speedlight" Sounds like they don't know what it is, either. I tried the reset to no avail. I'm not sure I want to send it in to have it fixed, since it does seem to be working. But you're right, it's annoying.
