Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-600 TTL Flash
Hi, I had a AA battery leak and now the init wont work. Any tips?
If the contacts on the battery door, or down inside the flash have green or white gunk on them, you can remove it by using the eraser on the end of a pencil. If the stuff is really stubborn, dip a cotton swab in vinegar and wipe it all over the contacts. If the stuff is white, you will see it bubble away, if it's the green stuff, let the vinegar soften it, then dry it all up with another swab. That usually does the trick.

I had the same problem. The bottom contact was dirty due to battery leak. Hard to see until I read this. It worked. Many thanks.
