Is the modeling flash turned on? It will release a strobe burst before the flash. If it is set to be activated by the button on the front of the camera and you keep hitting it with you finger it will drive you nut and blind everyone around

This may be due to something loose or internal damage in the camera's printed circuit. Also this can be due to settings. Try to go to the menus and reset all to factory default. Later you can pick the settings you want, if it works.

Nikon d700 hotshoe missfire with flash nikon sb900


Probably a loose hotshoe. This is a common problem with the D700 hotshoe and SB900 combo. The weight of the SB900 eventually loosens the hotshoe, meaning the internal screws holding the hotshoe in place loosens.

Nikon SB 800 fires but pictures reamain dark


I have 2 SB-800s. When batteries leaked in one Nikon took forever to fix it, so they eventually sent me a refurb. Then they sent my original back. Which was great, until recently it developed this problem.

Another possibly related side effect is the modeling flash does not burst -- it only fires a single (very bright) flash.

The capacitor argument sounds likely. Coincidentally I also had a problem where the flash would fire sporadically -- but that was due to scuz buildup on the contacts.

Sorry I don't have a real solution for you.
