    I have an SB-600 that will not fire either. LCD works fine, but ready light does not come on, and no test flash or regular ttl flash. I have changed batteries, cleaned contacts, and I am hoping someone else has a clue what might be wrong?

ok,
try to set the menu item for Auto FP to ON (it works in P,S, A, and M modes only) that will activate the Highspeed Sync when you are using the SB-600 flash unit, set the flash mode so the indicator shows the off position (the line thru the lightning bolt symbol) on the top inidcator menu in the its next to the red eye redution icon that will keep the built-in flash off even if you need it in low light. hope that works for you.

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.

Bought a Nikon Speedlight SB-600 in August. Tested the flash and it fired ok. I took out the flash a few days ago to use at a graduation and the "ready" light did not come on. Consequently it did...


Hi grwcamp, Sorry to hear about it not working at the graduation. Are in the correct position (I am sure you did but, we must start someplace). Look inside, see if there is battery acid in there.
If with new/fresh batteries it still does not work call Nikon. You have a warranty on it so it should be covered.

Try doing a reset - press the "Mode" and "On/off" buttons together for a few seconds and you go back to factory settings. Sounds like you got into some funky mode, assuming everything else is working ok.

seems like the batteries have gone dead. Replace the batteries. Get a set of good capacity rechargeable NiMH batteries (I recommend Sanyo Eneloop). Also try cleaning the battery and flash contact points with an eraser.

SB-600 will never be on ready


The capacitor may be weak, or there is a problem at the component level that is not allowing the inverter to reach full voltage.

The flash will need shop service.

Check in the user guid for your camera about their recomended shutter speed setting for the flash.

Try using the camera and the flash in "A" (automatic) to start with.
