Hey ljthomp6_30,
I would just reset the flash back to the manufacturers default setting, which is done by pressing the mode button and the on/off button simultaneously for about 2 seconds. Keep in mind this will also reset any custom settings you have. In case you have lost your manual I have included a link to a PDF download of it, and directions on how to reset your flash are on page 12. I hope this helps!

Why does my sb-800 doesn't show the meter and ft. and doesn't have a guide GN menu?


Since SB-800 is a dedicated TTL flash, it doesn't need you to manually set the values. The flash can communicate with the Nikon cameras automatically in TTL mode.

I dropped my camera now the flash is broken,


Sure. Nikon makes a line of what they call Speedlights. The SB-400, SB-600, SB-800, and SB-900 will give you full capabilities. Older models will give you somewhat less capabilities.

Third-party vendors also make flash units compatible with the D60.

External flash units tend to be more powerful than built-in flashes, which makes sense considering their size and additional batteries. They also move the light source further from the lens axis, reducing red-eye, improving shadows, etc. They also may allow bounce flash, which further softens the light.

I have a new D3000 and a nikon SB-600 flash. I


From the Nikon site, do you have one of these flash units.
Support for the Nikon Creative Lighting System when using SB-900, SB-600, or SB-400 Speedlights, or the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander
If so You set the flash mode to "comander" the pop up flash must be UP

This Video by Nikon shows how but you will have to read the manual to get a full description go to the flash section http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d300s/index.html

Then look at them all :)

I am using a Speedlight sb-800 on a Nikon D200. I cannot get the Zoom M function to change to Zoom. Any ideas?


Take flash out from hotshoe.
Can you set flash zoom manually?
When using Nikon Nikkor zoom & zooming, does flash zoom or hear motor sounds from head?

I want to know how to use the 952AF/Nik with the nikon d200 using multi flash units with the commander mode set to channel 1


The vivtar 952AF flash is not compatible with the D200 in commander mode. Only the Nikon SB600, SB-800, SB-900 will work with that camera wirelessly.
