You have to order parts from the Nikon authorized service rep for your area. Call Nikon tech support for information. In some areas, Nikon will sell direct.

Sb 600 not able to get out of standby


If you cannot release Standby from within the menu options, here is one thing I did: removed all batteries then pumped the on/off button numerous times. Upon replacing the batteries the issue is solved. If that does not work then it may need to go to Nikon. The SB600 seems to have more issues than the SB800 and up.

This flash was made in the 1990's for use on nikon film cameras. It wont work in TTL mode on current nikon models, and it has no infrared remote capability like the sb600/800 speedlights, but it can still be fired in manual mode by even the newest nikon cameras. I wouldnt throw it away, but I probably wouldnt use it that much either.

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.

Sb600 doesn't fire well off the sb800


The sb600 needs to be able to see the preflashes of the sb800, so this is probably caused by one of two things.  The first thing I'd check is whether or not the light sensor on the side of the sb600 was covered, blocked, or facing away from the sb800.  I've had problems outdoors when I forgot to have the light sensor face the camera.
If the sensor was facing the camera, it is possible that the flashes didn't have a good line of sight to each other.  That normally shouldn't matter, but if there is a high ceiling and lots of people, it could be the case.  I don't know if it will help, but in any case I would recommend using a StoFen Omnibounce on the sb800 to increase the likelihood that the light finds a direction where a surface to bounce off of is found.  
Good luck.

SB800 firing but not syncing??


I had that same problem with the SB600 and the SB 800. Solutions; get a new one. After about a year of usage the sb600 started giving me that problem. It flashes but it does not sync. It still works as a remote unit, but not mounted on the camera. The SB800 just went to a coma last weekend. No sync at all, not even as remote unit, no strobe function, just a bright flash, when triggering the test button with new fresh batteries, it flashes at max power once and takes around 7 seconds to recycle. No multiple flashes at all. I had to buy a new one.
