Set the ISO to a higher number and put the camera on a tripod because the shutter will remain open for an extended period of time. You may have to experiment with the ISO setting and also exposure compensation to get the exact result you're looking for.

My nikon d3000 is great. but now when i view my pics there is a flashing in certain areas of the pic. also my flash won't flash. is there something i can do to fix it


This flashing is often an indication that those areas are 'over exposed'. This could be because you have manual settings such as 'EV +1'etc., or 'spot metering' when you took the picture centred on a dark part of the scene. You could check this by setting the camera to automatic to see if it solves the problem. If it does, have a good look through the menus and user guide to see what the various manual settings are.

The flash settings include one where the flash is off, and there is usually a button to toggle between the automatic/off/forced flash/red eye suppression etc.

REAR FLASH PRB ON NIKON D300


If your doing what I think you are then, It sounds like the flash is set too act as a commander for the off-camera CLS flash setup. Check setting e3 and put it in TTL mode. It's called rear or 2nd curtain flash sync.

Shutter is lagging with sb-800 flash attached. flash goes off, 3 sec later shutter goes


Have you checked the flash mode?
I have no problems with the combination D300 SB-800.
I assume you don't have a picture if the flash goes off before the shutter open(?)
If you do check the menu e2 Flash shutter speed you can set it at a few seconds in spite of the fact that the flash sync (e1) is something reasonable like 1/250
The flash shutter speed is set to 1/60 in my camera...

Nikon D60 is suddenly taking very dark pictures


I have had "dark pictures" from each of my Nikon DSLR (D70, D80, D200, D300) cameras usually when taking pictures from a tripod and/or the self timer. Situations where you take your eye away from the viewfinder which allows stray light to enter thru the viewfinder and throw the auto exposure way off. Not sure if this is what is happening to you.
