Tape works better than glue . The black tape . Super glue will work if you use an accurator with the glue .

Can I use Nikon SB-22s speed light with my Nikon digital SLR D5000? Is that compatible? I bought SB-22s for my previous Nikon film camera. Thank you.


You should be able to use your SB-22 with your D5000, however you can only use it in the manual mode since it is not a TTL speed light. That means you will need to manually set both the camera and the flash unit. I have done that successfully with an SB-25 on both my D800 and D90 in a pinch, but you should consider investing in either an SB-700 or SB-910. They are allot more versatile.

I dropped my sb600 and now the flash doesn't work. The unit comes on, but no flash. Is it worth fixing?


there is no harm getting it looked at
it may be something as simple as the bulb is broken and needs replacing rather then spending however much for a brand new flash

Dropped Sb-600, and now when the flash can't adjust zoom, making whining sound as the zoom is trying to move.


There's nothing you can do and DIY fixing options can be dangerous due to the very high residual voltages inside.

You've either broken the zoom motor gears or they have been displaced; either way the flash needs to be professionally repaired and preferably by an authorised Nikon service centre.

Despite the lack of a fix I hope my answer has been of some assistance. If so, please rate my answer.

SU-800 and SB-600 line of sight


Remember that the SU-800 works by sending out an infra red beam as the trigger pulse, when out doors available light can swamp the sensor on the side of the flash with too much light, therefore the flash cannot "see" the pulse from the SU-800.
Also if you refer to the manual, you will find nikon recommends working within approx 30 / 60  degree angle of the sensor, so if you were working behind the camera with the flash it would have had even more trouble.
As you found when you used your hand you strengthened the output beam for the flash to be able to pick up the pulsed output beam. You may need to create some kind of hood, to place in front of the SU-800 to direct the beam in the direction you need it to work.
Hope this helps  Ian

My sb 600 fires with the camera but it seems not illuminate


Definately a settings problem. The camera will only syncronize on one specific speed. Youe best bet is to use auto. For manual, you'll have to set the shutter speed at the sync speed.

Flash Sync Speed
  • up to 1/250 X-Sync Speed
  • up to 1/8000 FP High Speed Sync
  • Red-eye reduction
    Red-eye reduction with slow sync
    Rear-curtain sync
    Slow sync
    Front-curtain sync (normal) Flash Sync Modes
  • 1) i-TTL: TTL flash control by 1,005-pixel RGB sensor, built-in flash, SB-800, SB-600, SB-400: i-TTL balanced fill-flash and standard i-TTL flash
    2) AA (Auto Aperture-type) flash: Available with SB-800 used with CPU lens
    3) Non-TTL Auto: Available with Speedlights such as SB-800, 28, 27, and 22S
    4) Range-priority manual flash; available with SB-800 Flash Control

    Noise while zooming with sb-600


    sb-600/800 make a distinct motor-spinning noise when zooming, this is normal. Any grinding/clicking noises are not normal.

    Speedlight SB-600 Display flashing.


    My SB 600 is doing the exact same thing. I used Nikon's online support service and this is the response I got: "I would try doing the 2 button reset on the flash and then see if that helps. Also disconnect any battery packs you may have connected especially if its a third party battery pack. If none of the above work then please service the speedlight" Sounds like they don't know what it is, either. I tried the reset to no avail. I'm not sure I want to send it in to have it fixed, since it does seem to be working. But you're right, it's annoying.
