What would it cost to get the foot replaced on a Nikon SB 28 DX speedlight

Hi Richard,

About $47.00.

Best suggestion:
Have a Nikon SB-80DX with modified battery cable for $150.00.
Faster recycle time and less weight.

SB 800 Speedlight AF red lamp not function

The problem is probably caused by a fault in the main power circuit board, if the red light doesn't come on then you also probably won't hear the high pitched noise as the capacitor charges. Will be expensive to repair as you will need a new circuit board.

Nikon SB-80DX doesn't work

The symptoms and sounds you describe (pop, now rattling) point to the flashtube being blown. Sorry. You can get a repair estimate, but you may find it cheaper to buy a used on on eBay or craigslist. Around $100-110 on eBay if you are patient.

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?
