Red light display with SB


The flashing red light indicates that the camera's flash is charging.
Your electronic flash does not work on the low voltage supplied by the camera's battery. Instead, the battery is used to charge a capacitor(s) that are connected in a manner that raises the voltage to a level that will fire the flash. If the batteries are not adequately charged or the capacitor(s) are leaking, which will occur as they age, enough voltage will not be stored to allow the flash to fire.
Make sure your batteries are fully charged. Remember, rechargeable batteries do go bad after time and must periodically be replaced.
If the battery is fully charged and the red light continues to flash, the camera will need to be sent in for repair (probably replacement of the capacitor(s)). Call the Nikon Service Center at 1-800-645-6687 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday, and they can arrange for you to have your camera evaluated and provide you with an estimate without cost. Your camera is rather old and it is possible that it might make more sense to replace it with a new model.

Fast flashing green light when trying to charge


usually fast flashing charge is faulty battery its trying to get volts in to the battery. you see the battery has a charging board on the battery not in the camera the camera sends the volts to the battery and the battery tells the camera its voltage, and when at the right volts stops charging. but these batteries can only be charged to around 10000hrs depending on the type of battery. you see when you get a new battery you need to charge it before use, now this can be 6hrs to 12hrs for fist time use if you interrupted the charge or have a power cut while it charges it can damage the charging chip in the battery. if this does the flashing light on other batteries then the signal is not being read by the camera and the camera can be faulty on the charging circuit, usually (sometimes) removing the battery for a few hours can fix this but it will rest the camera. hope this helps you.

Flash not working


Can be for severe; reasons.
1. There is enough light.
2. You can force the flash, with the mode switch to Flash forced on, Slow synchro and Flash forced off. Try flash forced on.
3. The battery is not fully charged. When there is not enough power in the battery, the flash can't be charged enough to fire. But if the camera tries to charge the flash, a symbol with a lightening arrow and a dot is displayed. So if you see these symbols, could be you need better batteries. Try charging the battery.
4. the flash is really defect. Could happen too, but first check if everything from 1 to 3 is as it should be. only than you have to visit the repair shop or Sony if it is still in warranty.

When I try to charge the battery the light just flashes and the charger does not work.


Hi, I had the same problem!

Had not used my camera for a while so I decided to but my battery on charge, once in the charger the orange light just kept flashing so I left this in "flashing" for a good hour or so.

I removed it and then replaced it, and it was still flashing so I decided to get a new battery (£40!).


I put the new battery on charge over night and it charged great, so I thought I would re-try charging my old one before I sent it away for recycle, and guess what the orange light stopped ON and it was charging!

Not sure what happened here, it was either charge the old for an hour with light flashing and then remove and leave over night and re-try OR insert a good battery to re-set the charger?

But I now have 2 good batteries.

Hope this helps :)
