The flash unit is very compact and the high voltage is at 330volts .
NIKON uses strink warap onn the ends of the tube also and the trigger lead will
pull out of the trigger coil if not careful .

If you need repair contact.

Did not flash fire


Have you tried the SB600 flashgun on another Nikon Camera, if not do so, and if it doesn't fire for you, then you should send it to a Nikon Service Centre.

Where can I find a replacement flash head tilting/rotating lock-release button?


Hi Kaye, I reckon the only place you'll get one is from a Nikon Service Centre, or a discarded/broken SB600 from a camera shop.

My NIkon SB600 is stuck on my hotshoe-I can not remove it fromt the camera (d80) help


I had a similar problem with my SB25 when I tried to use it on a D90. I took the camera into the Nikon USA Repair Depot in Los Angeles where they took it into the back shop and removed it while I waited without charge. If the SB600 is like my SB700 and SB900's, there is a spring loaded dimple in the camera's hot shoe that clicks into a hole in the SB flash hot shoe. I think if you can slide a thin piece of metal such as a machinists shim, you may be able to depress the dimple and release the SB600. Let me know if it works.

My Nikon SB600 flash will only flash once nomatter the kind of battery.


Hello!
Please clean the contacts on the hot shoe and shoe foot, and confirm that there is communication between the camera and flash.
We are talking about a SB that works well until you put on the shoe.

Did not understand your explanation.
The flash will not turn on the display, and the ready light not lit.
Send to Nikon service.

My Nikon Nikkor 18-55mm lens will not automatically focus even when set to "A". I have cleaned it with canned air and the manual focus works fine. I want to repair it myself as Nikon has quoted...


hi there,

the motor inside your lens might have been broken,
was it fell down or hit something before?

if it`s still in warranty, you can claim it to Nikon Service Center

hope this post will help

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

Water got into my sb600


I doubt it. Water damage usually is fatal, or very expensive.

Dropped my SB600


It is possible, but highly unlikely considering that there is no real way to purchase the correct Xenon tube outside of Nikon's supply chain. Also, it would depend on your skill level in dealing with high voltage flash tubes - the electronic flash has a little high voltage power supply that charges up some capacitors (the high pitched sound you hear while it is recycling). When you fire the flash you discharge the capacitors across the Xenon tube which generates a plasma and gives of a pulse light. So, the truth is, if you are asking the question, it is probably not within your capabilities - though if you want to give it a shot, please make sure you discharge everything before attempting to do so. Even after several days, there will still be an appreciable voltage present unless Nikon has done something to protect you (doubtful). Also, you would need to pay extreme attention to contamination from skin oils, etc., so that you don't wind up ruining the high voltage part or blackening the bulb that you put in.

If you have a homeowners or renters insurance policy and the deductible is low enough, I believe that this would fall under one of those.

Good luck.
