    Same problem as the above. I have the SD600 for about two weeks and it will not turn on.

    I have the exact same problem as above, and I already cleaned the battery cap with no success.

    I have the same problem. Just quit working. Has not been used that much. Cleaned contacts, changed batteries, no flash, no sound, nuttin'.

    Had just three months. Will not turn on! Just stop working! Changed batteries, cleaned contacts as suggested and stil nothing! Seems this is common problem with this product, from what I see on this site. The Nikon SB 600 seems to be a poor quality product.

Batteries may have leaked. Open battery chamber and clean ---especially the contacts situated at the bottom -- with pencil erazor. Blow out any loose bits and with new batteries try to switch the unit on.

Changed batteries because some had corrision on them and now flash won't work at all?


Did you clean the contacts in the SB-600 when you discovered the corroded batteries? I use a pencil eraser followed by alcohol on a Q-tip. Make sure that all of the contacts are shinny and there is no remaining sulfate residue. If that does not solve the problem, there are other issues.

SB 600 wont turn on


Did you overheat it?
I know this is basic, but are you sure the batteries are good and installed correctly?

My sb 600 fires with the camera but it seems not illuminate


Definately a settings problem. The camera will only syncronize on one specific speed. Youe best bet is to use auto. For manual, you'll have to set the shutter speed at the sync speed.

Flash Sync Speed
  • up to 1/250 X-Sync Speed
  • up to 1/8000 FP High Speed Sync
  • Red-eye reduction
    Red-eye reduction with slow sync
    Rear-curtain sync
    Slow sync
    Front-curtain sync (normal) Flash Sync Modes
  • 1) i-TTL: TTL flash control by 1,005-pixel RGB sensor, built-in flash, SB-800, SB-600, SB-400: i-TTL balanced fill-flash and standard i-TTL flash
    2) AA (Auto Aperture-type) flash: Available with SB-800 used with CPU lens
    3) Non-TTL Auto: Available with Speedlights such as SB-800, 28, 27, and 22S
    4) Range-priority manual flash; available with SB-800 Flash Control

    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.

    Sb 600 under exposure.


    You probably haven't changed the camera and/or flash back to TTL mode from wireless mode.  Make sure they are both set to TTL, not commander mode and you should be fine.  Note that the LCD on the flash will indicate which mode it is with a little graphic.  On the D70 you had to switch between TTL and Commander mode to set it up to work using the built in flash as the commander, so you just have to switch back.

    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.
