SOURCE: Camera flash problem (Nikon)
try to set the menu item for Auto FP to ON (it works in P,S, A, and M modes only) that will activate the Highspeed Sync when you are using the SB-600 flash unit, set the flash mode so the indicator shows the off position (the line thru the lightning bolt symbol) on the top inidcator menu in the its next to the red eye redution icon that will keep the built-in flash off even if you need it in low light. hope that works for you.

My camera's shutter will not depress all the way due to a red flash light coming up all the time in the Flash-Ready indicator lamp (refer to pag 28 in the Nikon manual). It can be full sun outside but it will not work due to the red flash light coming on.
A work around is to select a flash mode of 'cancel'.
There is a button toward the front of your camera called the flash mode button. Click that until you see strike mark on the flash icon of your monitor screen (see page 32 in the Nikon manual).
The camera must have a malfunction of determining the lighting so it always thinks you need to have a flash on the picture. Of course this is not 'fixing' the flash/lighting issue but you can take typical day pictures for now with this work around.

In commander mode, the onboard flash must flash. How else would it communicate with your slave flash(es)? Depending on your settings, almost all of the communications can be done before the picture is taken.
Is the onboard flash negatively impacting your photos?

From the Nikon site, do you have one of these flash units.
Support for the Nikon Creative Lighting System when using SB-900, SB-600, or SB-400 Speedlights, or the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander
If so You set the flash mode to "comander" the pop up flash must be UP
This Video by Nikon shows how but you will have to read the manual to get a full description go to the flash section http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d300s/index.html
Then look at them all :)

If the problem is that the flash won't stay locked down (ie. it's not popping up because the camera thinks it needs more light) then have a look at http://dieselpic.wordpress.com/2010/07/14/d90-flash-wont-stay-down-how-to-fix/ - this is what I did to fix mine.
