    I have the same problem. Everything on the screen of my flash looks completely normal, and the ready light comes on, but when I take the picture or try to test the flash it doesn't flash. I have the SB-600 too.

    Same problem. I've tried changing batteries, modes, settings. After about a hundred attempts to fire the flash with nothing, it finally went off....once. And then back to nothing. All that did was rule out a bulb issue.

Zoom the flash all the way in so you can see if the flash bulb is broke

Have you tried the obvious - the test button??
If the test button doesn't work - either that button is bad - or the flash is bad.

SOURCE: Nikon Speedlight SB-600 keeps firing

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.

My SB-600 Just quit firing... :(


It maybe because it overheated he flash tube, nikon flash guns use a thermal cutout, to prevent overheating, usually after approximately 30 / 40 shots, in quick succession.  It should start working again after it cools down.
If not you may need to get it checked at Nikon Service Centre. Cheers Ian
