You should talk to the Bower tech support or to professional camera place that sells these flashes.

It is possible that the flash is defective, or there is a non compatibility issue.

You have to remember that these technologies use very sophisticated computerized design. It is very easy to have compatibility issues especially when matching devices from one manufacture to the other. There are some industry standards, but it is impossible to have perfection with all the possible protocols between different types of equipment.

Personally, I stay with the same manufacture for all the options, unless the other devices I choose are known to be compatible.

Repair manual for Nikon SB 700 flash


You might already know this but use great caution when opening any photo flash. The capacitor inside can generate enough of a shock to kill you, even with the unit off and the batteries removed as it stores a "charge".

Vivitar 283 with new Nikon Digital camera


the nikon D80 has a 250 volts safe range and i have the same issue but readin on the internet i learned that yo can now the voltage of your flash with a voltage metter ond the hot soe.

Vivitar 283 has diferent ranges of voltages depending on the year of fabrication so older ones can achieve 300 volts and earlier have 230 volts so the best is to get a vivitar 285hv for about 75dollars or a safe sync for about 55dollars, you can find all on ebay or other brouser the safe sync converts up to 400 volts to a safe 6 volts that are yust the normal voltage for digital flashes.

Nikon D80 using Bower AF 724AFN


I also purchased a Bower 724AFN to use with my D80, and experience the same problems. Received confirmation from Nikon that this flash unit is not compatible with the camera. I then purchased an SB-600 flash, and haven't looked back. It's worth the extra money for this high quality unit; fully compatible, and compliments the TTL features of the D80. I'll never deviate from original Nikon accessories again.

Nikon d80 continuous mode


This can be that the flash sync speed of the camera is not correct. There may not be enough exposure from the flash to the subject during the opened curtain (shutter) sequence.
