My SB800 will not fire. It comes on, but the flash

When you shoot like crazy, like shoot with a very low ISO and take many flash photos the flash works hard. You can hear the recharge cycle and it takes a while to recharge and get the red LED back on. So you were using the flash and it got HOT. When it gets HOT it shuts down. It is supposed to STOP working when it gets hot. If you want to shoot like crazy you have to get the flash a break and shoot a higher ISO.

SB-800 makes strange noise and over exposes image when it does work

The flash has settings you will have to read your manual the camera does the exposers not the flash set your cameras appuatue to a high number and speed fast then shoot if you knew how to use your camera you would know the flash is uesd for filling in shadows and imitating the sun which is bright. Good luck
