SB-29 speedlight overflash

I have the SB-29 speedlight. Until about 1 week ago it worked fine. Now, whenever I use it in the Macro setting, it overflashes and the picture is white. Any suggestions?

DOES IT WORK WITH NIKON D300S


Yes, though it's an older flash unit and cannot be used in the iTTL mode. The "Other Flash Units" section of the D300s manual (page 350 in my copy) lists the modes in which the flash may be used. Another concern is that the flash may not work well with certain lenses. The "Usable lenses and cameras" section of the SB-29 manual (page 5) discusses this.

If you need manual, you can download the D300s manual from
http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16525/kw/D300S/r_id/116678
and the SB-29 manual from

I have a Nikon D40x with a Nikon Speedlight SB-800. The speedlight is not working. I have the camera on, new batteries in the speedlight and speedlight on. Not powering up. Is there some secret battery...


With new batteries in the flash, and it being off camera what happens when you press the test button. If still it does not flash call Nikon 1-800-645-6689

Will this work with D2X


The SB-29 was made to work with film cameras. It will work on your D2X, but only in manual mode.

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

    Nikon Speedlight SB-27 TTL... Problem


    This flash unit will flash the red light until the capacitor is charge. Also the mode your shooting will flash. What exactly is flashing?

    Ready light on my SB-800 speedlight


    put in a fresh set of batteries. The ready light won't turn on until the flash capacitor is fully charged. And if your battery is weak, it can take very long (minutes!) to fill the capacitor. You still can fire the flash even it is not ready, it will just dump whatever power it stored in the capacitor.

    Nikon SB-29s macro speedlight


    Trigger coil or a flash tube. Flash tube is easier to replace so try to replace that first. Caution before you do anything else when you open the unit locate the main 330v capacitor and discharge it before you work on the unit !

    Built-In Speedlight (Flash) will not retract


    I haven't heard of this problem but compliments of velocityreviews I came up with this. Follow the instructions below to attach an external Speedlight. Refer to your Speedlight manual for detailed instructions regarding Speedlight operation. 1 Make sure that both the camera and the external Speedlight are turned off. 2 Attach the Speedlight to the camera accessory shoe. 3 Turn both the camera and the Speedlight on. 4 Set the external Speedlight zoom head to an angle wider than 28 mm. If you are using a Speedlight with Auto Power Zoom, set the zoom head angle manually. The COOLPIX5700 does not support power zoom. 5 Set the external Speedlight flash mode to TTL. At this setting, the amount of light produced by the external Speedlight is measured by the camera?s photocell, and the flash shooting range adjusted automatically to ensure optimal exposure. D-TTL flash control (available with the SB-80DX, SB-50DX and SB-28DX) is not supported. 6 Take the picture If the Speedlight Options: Speedlight Control option in the SET-UP menu is set to Auto, only the external Speedlight will fire. If this option is set to Int & Ext Active then the external Speedlight and the builtin Speedlight will fire at the same time. The COOLPIX5700 does not support AF-assist illumination, or red-eye reduction using the red-eye reduction lamp on the external Speedlight. At a setting of STBY (standby), the Speedlight will turn on automatically whenever the camera turns on but will not turn off automatically when the camera turns off. Exact functionality varies with the Speedlight in use. Refer to your Speedlight manual for details. I hope it's of some help BMW
