Question about Nikon DSLR D90 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon D90 flash will not pop.

After a 30-40 cm drop on it's head (right on the hot shoe), the pop up flash won't pop up anymore. Flas button seems to work fine, I can change flash settings, but the flash comes up only if i pry it open with my fingernail. Also when open, it works fine. How can I fix the problem?

    the thing is, they charge from 100 USD upwards, and the whole body, new, costs around 300. It's ridiculous when you consider my problem, i think you get my point.

T3 built in flash won't pop up. Says I have an external flash attached, but I don't.


There is a small flat leaf spring under the hot shoe rail where an eternal flash slides in. If an external flash is mounted the leaf spring is pressed against a small button telling the camera that there is an external flash mounted. Take a toothpick and rub under the hot shoe rail gently to more the leaf spring or unjam the leaf spring. You may even see the button depressed, poke at it a time or two with a toothpick, even a drop of rubbing alcohol may unstick this button if a sticky beverage sprayed on it.

How to get vivitar pro 548 series 1 to work on nikon d90


The TTL contacts on the Nikon are different to the Vivitar.
You can put a remote flash trigger in the Vivitar and use the Nikon's built-in flash to trigger the Vivitar flash using the remote flash trigger.

I have a nikon d90 camera having so guide me for brought a Flash For it. I use it in Marriage photography work. please replay me the answar in my mail id-- raby987@gmail.com


That's a decision only you can make. Do you just want one shoe-mounted flash? Do you want a flash on the shoe controlling other flashes? Do you want just a remote controller on the camera controlling other flashes? With remote flashes, do you want radio or IR control?You can get information about Nikon's flash units here.

My nikon D90 felldown from my hand and now the flsh not working ; i mean it pup up but no liting


Assuming you don't have the flash turned off, the most likely scenario is that the drop broke something. It could be a loose or broken wire, or a damaged flash tube. Without an actual examination it's impossible to diagnose the exact problem.
If you know how to repair cameras, you can order a replacement flash head here. Otherwise, take the camera in to an authorized Nikon shop and have them take a look at it.
Yes, I know either option will cost money. But if the flash is broken, it's broken.

D90 dropped and caused a seal crack at front cover (cracked above lens mount). Build-in flash does not popup. It works well without flash. Do I have to replace the front cover? What should I do with...


The SB600 isn't made any more. I would recommend the SB700. Before you buy an external flash however, make sure that the hot shoe on you camera is still fully functional. An external flash is superior to the pop-up flash under almost any circumstances. Where your pop-up flash limits your shooting distance substantially, I have take pictures at night using an SB700 almost 100 feet from the subject and gotten correct exposure with my D90. Now there is one thing you will not be able to do without the pop-up flash, but I suspect it will never matter to you. You will not be able to use the pop-up flash to trigger the SB700 off camera.

My nikon d90 pop up flash is not working but the pup up is poping up


Hi Reggie,

Usually the pop up flash will extend when the program calls for it or the user has manually turned it on, and it will fire without an issue. Page 70 of the manual goes into detail how it is set up and uses graphics which won't work very well here. Unless you have the "circle with a line though it" over the lightning bolt "flash" symbol, the flash should fire when needed.

It is possible that the flash lamp has failed, and may need to be replaced. Contact Nikon Service & Support or other reputable camera shop to help you with that.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Which adapter do Ineed to connect my nikon d90 with metz 45 cl-4 (non digital )


What do you mean by adaptor?! You will need to by a hotshoe adaptor with a hole that talkes the old style cable plug from your Metz lead and away you go! Try jessops. (As long as you have the lead from your Metz!?

Metz mecablitz 45 ct 1 and Nikon D-90


The trigger voltage of the 45CL-1 is about 12V, so it should be safe to connect directly to the hot shoe with an adaptor, or to the pc soclet, if the D90 has one. If the D90 is anything like my Canon 40D, which can stand about 30V on the hot shoe, then all the 45CL series will be ok, as they have trigger voltages between 9V and 12V. The 45CT-5 has a trigger voltage of 15V and works well on the 40D. I use 3 different Metz 45 models with my 40D and all work well on automatic, where the flash sensor itself controls the light output.
