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:-(

I have four SB800 are the leds screens suppose to be the same brightness even after checking settings ?? One is quite a bit dimmer than the rest


When they are new, the LCD screens should be the same. As LCDs age, they can deteriorate and get dimmer. That is normal. As long as everything is functional, I would not worry. When it goes completely, which may be sooner or later, you can have it repaired.

The other possibility is that the LCD is not at fault. If that is the case, the problem could be in the voltage regulator circuit that controls brightness.

Sb800 firing without pressing shutter release


sounds like a short in one of the circuit boards, most likely one or seveal of the ribbons and boards will need to be replaced to correct the problem. Send in for repair expect to pay up to $200 for a Nikon factory overhaul

Nikon SB 800 fires but pictures reamain dark


I have 2 SB-800s. When batteries leaked in one Nikon took forever to fix it, so they eventually sent me a refurb. Then they sent my original back. Which was great, until recently it developed this problem.

Another possibly related side effect is the modeling flash does not burst -- it only fires a single (very bright) flash.

The capacitor argument sounds likely. Coincidentally I also had a problem where the flash would fire sporadically -- but that was due to scuz buildup on the contacts.

Sorry I don't have a real solution for you.

SB800 firing but not syncing??


I had that same problem with the SB600 and the SB 800. Solutions; get a new one. After about a year of usage the sb600 started giving me that problem. It flashes but it does not sync. It still works as a remote unit, but not mounted on the camera. The SB800 just went to a coma last weekend. No sync at all, not even as remote unit, no strobe function, just a bright flash, when triggering the test button with new fresh batteries, it flashes at max power once and takes around 7 seconds to recycle. No multiple flashes at all. I had to buy a new one.
