    Does anyone out there still fix flashes? Or would I have to send it in to Nikon?

The capacitor may be weak, or there is a problem at the component level that is not allowing the inverter to reach full voltage.

The flash will need shop service.

I have a sb-600 flash. It works fine but it has


Try doing a reset - press the "Mode" and "On/off" buttons together for a few seconds and you go back to factory settings. Sounds like you got into some funky mode, assuming everything else is working ok.

Ready light does not come on. Unit will not flash from camera or flash button on SB-600. No visible damage to flash tube


Looks like the condenser is not charging. Oscillator section, transformer, transistor has to be checked.

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

Sb-600 not beeping, images completely black (underexposed)


Series of images is the KEY. If the Power you set the SB-600 is HIGH it will take a LONGER time to recycle than the SB-800. If you try to take a photo before the SB-600 is ready you will get a dark image. The randomness you get is due to the time between shots. In general try to run remote flashes at a lower power so they recycle faster.

I like the SB-800 because it can take 5 cells. 5 cells can really make a difference in the recycle time (faster) The SB-600 only takes 4 cells so it is slower.

Sb 600 under exposure.


You probably haven't changed the camera and/or flash back to TTL mode from wireless mode.  Make sure they are both set to TTL, not commander mode and you should be fine.  Note that the LCD on the flash will indicate which mode it is with a little graphic.  On the D70 you had to switch between TTL and Commander mode to set it up to work using the built in flash as the commander, so you just have to switch back.

Check that all the batteries are functioning properly, and that they have been inserted in the proper direction.
