Check that the wide angle pull out filter is pushed in proberly until it clicks in place also in custom menu check that M ZOOM is set to OFF. (hold zoom and - buttons together for a couple of seconds to enter and exit custom menu)

Re: Stuck in manual mode

What I did was put the flash on the camera, go to the menu on the camera and reselect TTL mode and press ok. The "M" disappeared.

The zoom on the sb600 wont adjust accordingly to the zoom of my lens

Three things come to mind.
First, make sure that you are in fully automatic mode - easily done by reset (holding down "Mode" and "On/Off" at the same time. If you hit the "zoom" button it takes it out of automatic zoom and cycles through manual zoom settings until you get to auto again.
Second - make sure the camera is in an auto mode - manual mode could stop it from zooming.
Third - make sure that you don't have the diffuser pulled down. That can keep it from zooming also.
Good luck!

Zoom--mm blinking and can't change mode

Your zoom motor is probably stuck. Remove the two screws on the front side of the tiltable head. Pry off the two tilt caps using a small flat head screwdriver (they are glued on). Remove the 4 screws found under each cap. Now you can separate the two sides of the head and take out the two lenses (remember exactly how the lenses were positioned). Try pushing the flash in or out (it should move with a little force). See if the flash now responds before reassembling.

Sb600 flash has no communication with d70 camera

Have you tried using the wireless mode? Even if there is a problem with the hot shoe interface, it might still work using the wireless mode. To do this you have to set both the camera and the flash. On the D70, under the menu with the icon that looks like a pencil, select Flash Mode|Commander Mode|TTL|OK. On the flash, hold down the Zoom and [-] buttons to get the CSM menu. When you see the zigzag arrow, push the Mode button to turn on the wireless mode.You may have to use the [+] or [-] buttons to cycle through the menu to find the zigzag arrow.

Now you should be able to use the flash detached from the camera. Just pop up the D70 flash, which will tell the SB-600 what to do via light pulses. There are other settings that may be required (channel and group settings must match between camera and flash) and be careful not to block the light sensor on the side of the SB-600. If the wireless system is still working, you may find you like it better than hot shoe operation.

LCD Stuck

Did you unlock the control keys? If you see an icon of a padlock on the screen you have locked out the buttons and need to unlock it. Look at the buttons and you will see the buttons have lines drawn from one to another. That means when those two buttons are pressed together, they perform a special function. To unlock the buttons you have to press two of the buttons that have the lock symbol drawn to them.

Canon Speedlite 430EX zoom issue

You're gonna kick yourself, but here goes, you know that clear plastic wide beam shield on the front, make sure it's fully inserted or else the auto zoom won't work while it's in use, (or the flash thinks it's in use)

Turn on flash while pressing some of those buttons with good batteries

Try switching from Meter to Standard Mode and move head around.

Try move the flash head(flash tube) in Manual mode.

It's in electronic locked up because you're moving that flash tube zoom too much. 98% of photographers use that mode:-(

Power zoom function

If you have the difuser on the zoom does not work as it assumes you are at close range. Remove the defuser and try again, good luck , Bob.
