Hello! Pleasecleanthecontacts onthe hot shoeand shoe foot, and confirmthat there iscommunication between thecameraandflash. We aretalking aboutaSBthat workswelluntilyouput ontheshoe. Did not understandyourexplanation. Theflashwill notturn onthedisplay,andtheready lightnotlit. Send to Nikon service.
Remove disc brake caliper from mounting bracket and support with a length of wire or remove sleeve bolt and rotate caliper up and out of the way to remove shoes. Do not allow caliper to hang by the brake line unsupported.
Remove outboard shoe and lining. Use a suitable tool to disengage shoe springs from holes in caliper housing.
Remove inboard shoe and lining, unsnapping shoe spring from piston.
If installing new shoe and linings, bottom piston in caliper bore using large pliers. Take care not to damage piston or piston boot.
Remove bushings from mounting bolt holes in bracket.
Install new bushings to mounting bolt holes in bracket. Lubricate bushings with silicone grease before installation.
Install inboard shoe and lining by snapping shoe retainer spring into piston. Shoe retainer spring is already staked to the inboard shoe. Shoe must lay flat against piston.
Install outboard shoe and lining by snapping shoe springs into holes in caliper housing. Wear sensor should be at the trailing edge of shoe during forward wheel rotation. Back of shoe must lay flat against caliper.
Apply approximately 175 lbs. (778 N) of force 3 times to brake pedal to seat linings.
There is only one pin that engages the shoe - the rest are simply pressure contacts. The pin that engages the shoe is strictly for locking the flash to the show, and is operated by the lever on the back of the flash - directly above the shoe.
Look closely at this area to find the lever. Slide it fully away from the "LOCK" position. This causes the pin to retract from engaging the hole in the shoe and return into the flash. Simply slide the flash towards the rear of the camera to remove.
Short shoe goes towards front. Also: check for any contamination on shoes or hardware from either axle seal or wheel cyls. Any contamination will make vehicle pull when brake applied. Technically, if contaminated shoes need replacement but if not heavy, on new shoes I usually just give a light sanding on friction material and the remainder will usually burn off.
It could be a communication error between the flash and the camera. Check the shoe foot for any damage or stuck pins. All of them must make proper contact with the hot shoe on the camera to get full auto/TTL, same for the shoe of the camera, bent? dirty contacts?
