Nikon D80 using Bower AF 724AFN

I cannot figure out how to get my Bower AF724AFN FLash to work with my Nikon D80. The Flash is in on position, but will not fire when I take a picture. The Flash icon is steadily blinking on my Nikon diplay and no matter how I change the settings it will not fire. PLEASE HELP!

I also purchased a Bower 724AFN to use with my D80, and experience the same problems. Received confirmation from Nikon that this flash unit is not compatible with the camera. I then purchased an SB-600 flash, and haven't looked back. It's worth the extra money for this high quality unit; fully compatible, and compliments the TTL features of the D80. I'll never deviate from original Nikon accessories again.

What flash for Nikon D80


No, the FT1700 is not TTL compatible which is what the camera wants to use. The Promaster 7500EDF is compatible in all modes with the Nikon D80

Nikon SC-29 REMOTE CORD


Hi Kathy,

Are you ready?

1. Make sure the Nikon SC-29's Red Panel's Lock Switch is set to the Left. Pointing at Left Black Screw.
2. Connect the Nikon SC-29's (Red Panel) to your camera's Hotshoe by pushing it as far as it goes.
3. Turn Lock Switch to the Right (turn CW). This locks down to camera.
4. Make sure Nikon SC-29 (other ends) AF-ILL is set to OFF.
5. Make sure your Nikon SB-800's Lock Switch is set to the left side.
6. Attach your Nikon SB-800 into this Hotshoe.
7. Switch the Lock Switch on flash to the right.
8. When you wants to AF from flash, set AF-ILL to "OFF"
9. For the best results, set AF-ILL to "ON".

I teaches, do repairs, services and modifications on all photographic equipments.

I hope they are helpful to you as well as for any Nikon Photographers using the Nikon SC-29 Cable.

Mine has Autofocus, ITTL, Slave and Wireless Radio Remote Flash.

Nikon D80. Vivitar 4600 Flash unit


That particular unit is probably not a good choice for the D80 because the trigger voltage (the electricity which flows from the flash through the camera circuits to fire the flash) is 19.5 volts, according to http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html - this could possibly damage your camera electronics.

You don't have to stick with Nikon brand Speedlights, but get a modern flash which says it is I-TTL compatible for Nikon.

Bower 724AFN


You should talk to the Bower tech support or to professional camera place that sells these flashes.

It is possible that the flash is defective, or there is a non compatibility issue.

You have to remember that these technologies use very sophisticated computerized design. It is very easy to have compatibility issues especially when matching devices from one manufacture to the other. There are some industry standards, but it is impossible to have perfection with all the possible protocols between different types of equipment.

Personally, I stay with the same manufacture for all the options, unless the other devices I choose are known to be compatible.

The 60CT-4 was not made for digital cameras.
