There is no harm getting it looked at
it may be something as simple as the bulb is broken and needs replacing rather then spending however much for a brand new flash

D90 dropped and caused a seal crack at front cover (cracked above lens mount). Build-in flash does not popup. It works well without flash. Do I have to replace the front cover? What should I do with...


The SB600 isn't made any more. I would recommend the SB700. Before you buy an external flash however, make sure that the hot shoe on you camera is still fully functional. An external flash is superior to the pop-up flash under almost any circumstances. Where your pop-up flash limits your shooting distance substantially, I have take pictures at night using an SB700 almost 100 feet from the subject and gotten correct exposure with my D90. Now there is one thing you will not be able to do without the pop-up flash, but I suspect it will never matter to you. You will not be able to use the pop-up flash to trigger the SB700 off camera.

Canon d60 - Built-in flash will not pop up


There may be something obstructing it from popping open. Inspect the flash area carefully. You could remove the battery and put it back in to see if it corrects the problem. Also, check the flash settings in the menu to make sure that the flash is set to operate. If all of those fail then take the camera in for warranty repair. If the warranty has expired and nothing else works I would suggest getting an external flash for you camera. You will be amazed how much better your photos come out using an external flash. If you go that route then I would suggest going to a camera shop or department to make sure the flash will work for you before purchasing. If you just want a small flash a little better than the built-in, get the SB400. It's only around $125. The SB600 is much better, but will cost almost twice as much (but I think it's worth it).

They work beautifully in auto, but the SB600 will reach much farther and give you less red eye. Good Luck you have a great camera!

Auto Flash DOESN'T WORK


if the camera still takes photos with no additional issues, i suggest you buy an external flash like a sb400 or an sb600. getting the flash serviced will fetch you around 100-150 usd which is about the price of the sb600.

Nikon SB600.


The flash unit is very compact and the high voltage is at 330volts .
NIKON uses strink warap onn the ends of the tube also and the trigger lead will
pull out of the trigger coil if not careful .

SB600 Works Erratically...


If red light on flash is blinking, flash is charging. In shooting rapidly, sometimes flash will go off even though it isnt fully charged. This can give dark shots. Flash eats batteries like crazy, best to always use fresh batteries for each shoot.

Sb600 wireless mode not working...


Remember that even though sb-600 is wireless, it is based on infrared. This usually means having a clear line-of-sight between flash commander and remote flash. Any object that gets in way can block signal from flash commander. Weak batteries in flash will also cause remote operation to be sporadic.
