Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-600 TTL Flash

1 Answer

I have a Nikon SB 600 and it wont turn on any more (I tried new batteries ;-) ) I sent it back to Nikon and they say it needs a new motherboard. Its one month out of warranty and so its gonna cost the same as buying a brand new one to fix :-( has anyone had the same and fixed it ?

I would expect it to cost less than a new one, if not - buy a new one.

When repaired they will replace all the damaged parts and wiring with new, so that should fix it, and you'd have a t least a 60 day warranty to test it.

If you invest in a better flash like the SB-900 you will have more power to use if needed, if not needed you will have a faster flash and recycle rate, greater distance and a more robust flash that has some protection circutry to protect the flash from over heating. Using this larger flash may eliminate you wearing out another SB-600.

MY SB 600 wont fire. I replaced the battery already but If I test fire it, it wont flash.


If you tried multiple batteries that you know are good and the flash will not fire while on the camera or via the test fire button, this unit will have to be returned to Nikon for service and repair.

Bought a Nikon Speedlight SB-600 in August. Tested the flash and it fired ok. I took out the flash a few days ago to use at a graduation and the "ready" light did not come on. Consequently it did...


Hi grwcamp, Sorry to hear about it not working at the graduation. Are in the correct position (I am sure you did but, we must start someplace). Look inside, see if there is battery acid in there.
If with new/fresh batteries it still does not work call Nikon. You have a warranty on it so it should be covered.

Nikon Speedlight SB-600 keeps firing


I believe that there is a safety feature built in that if the voltage in the capacitor gets too large the flash will fire, to prevent damage, could be this that is faulty, if it is a new main circuit board is required.

SB 600 wont turn on


Did you overheat it?
I know this is basic, but are you sure the batteries are good and installed correctly?

Nikon SB600 flash behaving strangely


I have sent my SB-600 to Nikon twice in the past 6 months to resolve this problem. They have fixed it both times, but never told me what the problem was. I've had it back for exactly 1 day now, and it's started back up again already. If I receive a solution (or replacement), I'll let you know!
