Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash
At best you have probably broken the flash tube itself. If you are confident you can fix these yourself, nikon will sell you the replacement tube, cost is around £20 for the part and a couple of hours work. However there is a serious risk to your health due to very large voltages in the capacitor in the flash so unless you know how to handle this I wouldn't bother. Nikon will charge around £150 to replace the tube and service the flash. All of this assumes its the tube, if its something else then Nikon will not sell you the part because they say it goes against their health and safety guidelines, i.e. due to the high voltages, however I could never figure out why they sell the tubes because you have to open the flash to repair? Go figure...
I would be interested in buying it you decide not to reapir. Thanks Mark
