Sorry, the D40x does not have a commander mode. You'll need the SB-800 or SB-900 flash or the SU-800 commander. Alternatively, you can use the SC-28 sync cable.

Nikon d 90 camera Nikon Speedlight SB-600 TTL Flash on auto flash fire when dont any photograph when ready red light on


This sounds like there may be a short in the control circuit that senses the flash command. First check the wiring and the circuit area where the connector feeds. check to see if the connector circuit is shorted. These are some of the basics. It could be the internal circuit board is shorted.

I have a Nikon D40x with a Nikon Speedlight SB-800. The speedlight is not working. I have the camera on, new batteries in the speedlight and speedlight on. Not powering up. Is there some secret battery...


With new batteries in the flash, and it being off camera what happens when you press the test button. If still it does not flash call Nikon 1-800-645-6689

D90-Sb600 help


The on-camera flash has to flash if you want it to be in commander mode. That's how it sends commands to slave flashes. Set to "--", that's all it does, the flash will not affect the picture.

If you want to operate remote flashes without any flash from the camera, you'll need to invest in a third-party wireless commander and triggers.

From the Nikon site, do you have one of these flash units.
Support for the Nikon Creative Lighting System when using SB-900, SB-600, or SB-400 Speedlights, or the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander
If so You set the flash mode to "comander" the pop up flash must be UP

This Video by Nikon shows how but you will have to read the manual to get a full description go to the flash section http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d300s/index.html

Then look at them all :)

Nikon Speedlight SB-600 keeps firing


I believe that there is a safety feature built in that if the voltage in the capacitor gets too large the flash will fire, to prevent damage, could be this that is faulty, if it is a new main circuit board is required.
