The weird noises could signal that the charge system is going bad, the very long warm up is not a good thing.. The flash may need to be repaired, but the cost of repairing an old SB-50 as compaired to buying a new SB-400 or Sb-600 has to be weighed. Take the flash to a local camera shop that sells nion and let them look at it.

Can i use the nikon sb50dx flash with the nikon d5100


Yes, you can use the SB50DX on the D5100, however not in the TTL modes. It will only work in the manual or rear-curtain sync modes. For more information, look on page 204 of your camera's manual. You can download it for free at this link: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/17325

Can I use Speedlight SB-50DX with Canon EOS Rebel Xti


It is not possible to use the Nikon SB-50DX directly on a Canon EOS Rebel camera. The Nikon flash gun hot shoe contacts do not match the Canon hot shoe contacts.
You can use the Nikon as a slave flash gun with a PC flash cord that matches the Nikon's flash contacts then connect the end of this flash cord to a flash trigger. The Canon's flash can then trigger the Nikon flash gun via the flash trigger.

Underexposure with Nikon SB-600 flash


1 - Make sure you don't have your diffuser screen pulled down. This is easy to overlook and will produce that effect.
2 - Reset your flash - hold down the "Mode" and "On/off" button together for a few seconds. This gets you out of any funky mode you could have accidently put yourself in
3 - Put camera in fully auto mode. That clears any weird modes you could have gotten into there
4 - Clean the contacts on the flash and camera. I use a pencil eraser and wipe with alcohol and paper towel. Dirty contacts can cause flash misfire or cause full flash during the preflash mode, which gives you dim or dark photos or sporatic flash operation.

SB flash does not synk with d90


Are you waiting for the flash to be ready before you fire the first photo?
What shutter speed are you using? Are you trying to sync at too high a shutter speed?

Sb-600 not beeping, images completely black (underexposed)


Series of images is the KEY. If the Power you set the SB-600 is HIGH it will take a LONGER time to recycle than the SB-800. If you try to take a photo before the SB-600 is ready you will get a dark image. The randomness you get is due to the time between shots. In general try to run remote flashes at a lower power so they recycle faster.

I like the SB-800 because it can take 5 cells. 5 cells can really make a difference in the recycle time (faster) The SB-600 only takes 4 cells so it is slower.

Noise while zooming with sb-600


sb-600/800 make a distinct motor-spinning noise when zooming, this is normal. Any grinding/clicking noises are not normal.
