I had the same problem. I have sent my D200 to Nikon France for repair and they solved the problem.

SOURCE: SB600 Works Erratically...

If red light on flash is blinking, flash is charging. In shooting rapidly, sometimes flash will go off even though it isnt fully charged. This can give dark shots. Flash eats batteries like crazy, best to always use fresh batteries for each shoot.

SOURCE: sb600 wireless mode not working...

Remember that even though sb-600 is wireless, it is based on infrared. This usually means having a clear line-of-sight between flash commander and remote flash. Any object that gets in way can block signal from flash commander. Weak batteries in flash will also cause remote operation to be sporadic.

SOURCE: Nikon SB600.

The flash unit is very compact and the high voltage is at 330volts .
NIKON uses strink warap onn the ends of the tube also and the trigger lead will
pull out of the trigger coil if not careful .

If you need repair contact.

SOURCE: Nikon Sb600 does not fire every time

I know you mentioned rechargeable batteries, but you did not say was what kind. I have had my -600 now for more than two years and suddenly I started to experience flash failures, and the ready light would not come on to indicate flash is ready. I called Nikon 24/7 tech support and they recommended NiMH rechargeable batteries. (I was using regular alkaylines). Instantly my problems were solved, flash after flash it recycled instantly. In the manual they list the recycle times and the NiMH are the fastest. The tech said they were very good on power.I was skeptical, but he was right, it turnes out.

So, if you are not using NiMH for rechargeables, that could well be your problem. NiCads won't cut it!

Did not flash fire


Have you tried the SB600 flashgun on another Nikon Camera, if not do so, and if it doesn't fire for you, then you should send it to a Nikon Service Centre.

How to set up Nikon ML-L3 on D700


You don't need to do anything on the ML-L3. You need to set the release mode on the D700 to the remote mode. Press the release mode dial lock release and turn the release mode dial (pages 27, 77, and 80 in my copy of the manual). If you need a manual, you can download one at

My nikon flash will fire randomly when connected to camera. I have both a sb600 and and sb 400 and both do the same thing. is this a connection problem?


Sounds like a short in the hot shoe. If it fires randomly, but especially when turned on its side then yes its a short.

If it was just dirty contact then the flash wouldn't fire at all so I dont think it is a connection problem. Make sure he camera is compatible with those flahses, but most Nikon cameras back to the FG should work fine with those.

My Nikon D700 fires my SB900 flash uncontrollably. It drives me nuts!


This may be due to something loose or internal damage in the camera's printed circuit. Also this can be due to settings. Try to go to the menus and reset all to factory default. Later you can pick the settings you want, if it works.

My new Nikon D700 is loading double images...two images of the same on the memory card...it takes up twice the space and i have to selct every other picture when uploading them into my Mac.


Sounds like you have it set on Bracketing. Go into your menu setting and turn off Bracketing.

Or you might be on NEF and JPG mode, taking a NEF and a JPG with each shot. Review the read-out on the top of the camera to see if it shows that. It it does go to QUAL on top of camera and change the setting to show one image, either NEF (RAW) or JPG.

One of those should fix ya.

ML-L3 Remote control


Sadly, the ML-L3 does not work with the D700. You need to buy the much clumsier and much more expensive ML-3, which has a wireless receiver you hook to the camera and a wireless transmitter you use to fire the camera.

Lame, but true.

Sb600 doesn't fire well off the sb800


The sb600 needs to be able to see the preflashes of the sb800, so this is probably caused by one of two things.  The first thing I'd check is whether or not the light sensor on the side of the sb600 was covered, blocked, or facing away from the sb800.  I've had problems outdoors when I forgot to have the light sensor face the camera.
If the sensor was facing the camera, it is possible that the flashes didn't have a good line of sight to each other.  That normally shouldn't matter, but if there is a high ceiling and lots of people, it could be the case.  I don't know if it will help, but in any case I would recommend using a StoFen Omnibounce on the sb800 to increase the likelihood that the light finds a direction where a surface to bounce off of is found.  
Good luck.

Nikon SB600 flash behaving strangely


I have sent my SB-600 to Nikon twice in the past 6 months to resolve this problem. They have fixed it both times, but never told me what the problem was. I've had it back for exactly 1 day now, and it's started back up again already. If I receive a solution (or replacement), I'll let you know!
