SB 600 Flash pre fire

Why does my flash pre fire before it takes the picture?

The only thing I could think of is that when you use the red-eye on the camera or flash it will flash several times before taking a shot.

My nikon d90 doesn't works when i put the flash sb-600


Could you provide some details? How does it not work? Does the D90 not turn on? Does it take a picture but the flash doesn't go off? What exposure mode(s) are you using?

Why does the flash on my Nikon Speedlight Sb-600 flash twice before it takes the actual picture?


It's called a pre-flash. It's so the camera can judge the settings needed for proper exposure.

D90-Sb600 help


The on-camera flash has to flash if you want it to be in commander mode. That's how it sends commands to slave flashes. Set to "--", that's all it does, the flash will not affect the picture.

If you want to operate remote flashes without any flash from the camera, you'll need to invest in a third-party wireless commander and triggers.

The flash is not in sync with my nikon d40 anymore. It fires first. Pictures come out dark. The camera itself takes great flash pictures


It sounds like you're trying to use the SB-600 off camera, as a slave flash. While the SB-600 does indeed have slave capability, the D40 does not have the ability to function as a commander. Thus, the SB-600 is being triggered by the D40's pre-flash.

As stated above, the D40 does not function in commander mode. You can mount an SB-800 or SB-900 flash unit, which will function as a commander as well as a flash. Or you can mount an SU-800 commander unit.

Alternatively, you can switch the D40 to manual flash mode so as to eliminiate the preflash. However, you will then have to calculate the proper exposure yourself.

My SB-600 Just quit firing... :(


It maybe because it overheated he flash tube, nikon flash guns use a thermal cutout, to prevent overheating, usually after approximately 30 / 40 shots, in quick succession.  It should start working again after it cools down.
If not you may need to get it checked at Nikon Service Centre. Cheers Ian

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?

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
