Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash
My sb-800 melting my batteries, i was just using duracell AA's and i noticed the flash was overheating, so i checked the batteries and they fried.
Thre is a non-repairable short in the capacitor charge circuit that puts a big amp load on the batteries.
May be repaired by Nikon service... but the electronics contain high voltage. Do not attempt to repair yourself and I wouldn't trust it even if Nikon repairs it. Why risk burning your camera and equipment!?!
