My Nikon SB600 flash will only flash once nomatter the kind of battery.

Please clean the contacts on the hot shoe and shoe foot, and confirm that there is communication between the camera and flash.
We are talking about a SB that works well until you put on the shoe.

Did not understand your explanation.
The flash will not turn on the display, and the ready light not lit.
Send to Nikon service.

My camera´s flash doesn´t work :/ and it says E:91:01 what does that mean? can I fix it? or my camera is useless


The E:91:XX error code appearing on the Camera screen is due to an Internal Hardware malfunction.
The E:91:01 error code may be due to the issue with the flash unit in the Camera. This can be resolved by checking or replacing the Flash unit.

Before that try the normal troubleshooting steps like power resetting and factory resetting. If the issue persists, it would be better to get the unit serviced at the Sony Authorized service center.

If you call Kodak, they will have you talk with a customer service person who will tell you how to completely reset your camera. Resets fix more digital cameras than you might think. Give them a try! ~p

Have you tried to reset the camera to the factory defaults? To do this: have the camera in shooting mode - go to Menu - left arrow to reset - press ok - Highlight Yes and press ok. This will reset the camera to factory settings. See if flash works now.

DSC W55 Error code E:91:01

I've had the camera for about 2 years. Have had this problem twice. All I've done is follow the manual to reset/initialize the camera's original settings. After that it works pretty good.

Cannot turn date stamp off and date keeps resetting

Try removing battery from camera then wait 10 seconds before installing. This action resets camera.

If no work, locate your camera software version. Procedure should be in manual, else could probably find it in a google search. Then locate latest version with a google search, or panasonic camera website, or call to customer service and ask.

It you do not have latest version, ask customer service how to download it.
