SOURCE: Camera flash problem (Nikon)

ok,
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.

SOURCE: When shutter depressed "AF" and "SB" LED's flash

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.

SOURCE: cannot stop on board flash from flashing in

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 :)

SOURCE: DSLR D90 Built in Flash Will not Stay down..

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.

Speedlight SB-600 TTL Flash: When I set my SB600 (mounted on D70) to TTL or TTL...


the sync speed for the sb-600 is onlt 1/200 on most cameras i think so if your shutter is faster then that then all you will see is black/ the curtans behind the shutter.

basicly just try again with a slower shutter speed

D90-Sb600 help


The on-camera flash has to flash if you want it to be in commander mode. That's how it sends commands to slave flashes. Set to "--", that's all it does, the flash will not affect the picture.

If you want to operate remote flashes without any flash from the camera, you'll need to invest in a third-party wireless commander and triggers.

My sb 600 fires with the camera but it seems not illuminate


Definately a settings problem. The camera will only syncronize on one specific speed. Youe best bet is to use auto. For manual, you'll have to set the shutter speed at the sync speed.

Flash Sync Speed
  • up to 1/250 X-Sync Speed
  • up to 1/8000 FP High Speed Sync
  • Red-eye reduction
    Red-eye reduction with slow sync
    Rear-curtain sync
    Slow sync
    Front-curtain sync (normal) Flash Sync Modes
  • 1) i-TTL: TTL flash control by 1,005-pixel RGB sensor, built-in flash, SB-800, SB-600, SB-400: i-TTL balanced fill-flash and standard i-TTL flash
    2) AA (Auto Aperture-type) flash: Available with SB-800 used with CPU lens
    3) Non-TTL Auto: Available with Speedlights such as SB-800, 28, 27, and 22S
    4) Range-priority manual flash; available with SB-800 Flash Control

    Sb-600 and d80 sync, connecting, off camera..


    1. On the SB 600, activate the custom settings menu by pressing the ZOOM and '-' buttons simultaneously for a few seconds.
    2. In the custom settings menu, set the Wireless Remote Flash option (indicated by a curled arrowhead) to 'ON' (use + and - buttons to toggle between options)
    3. Set the flash mode to Master (do not set it as AA or A)
    4. Press Mode button and select one of the four channels available (ensure that you set the camera also on this channel)
    5. On the D80, from custom settings menu, select Built-in-flash
    6. Set the built-in-flash to '--' if you do not want the flash to show up in the scene
    7. Set the mode of the group to i-TTL (this menu can be used to control multiple flashes in different groups. since you are using only one remote flash, select the group you have set in the SB600)
    8. Set the channel to the same as in step 4
    Now you are ready to use the remote off-camera flash.

    How do I make my Nikon SB-600 flash work remotely


    You need something to act as a commander. SB-800, SB-900, and the SU-800 all do this. Some cameras, such as the D300 and the D90 can also do this.
