Are you shooting those 20 pictures in rapid succession? If so the flash is saving itself by shutting down. If that is not the case, check your batteries with a battery charger to see if one may be weak causing a strain on the others. Call Nikon 1-800-645-6689

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.
