SB600 Flash doesn't fire for every shot

f the flash is not blown, it most likely is wiring/innards that are not connected properly. To fix this you simply need to take apart the camera, locate and reattach said part - or take it to a shop.For more troubleshooting hacks check Nikon D3100 Manual https://guideusermanual.com/product-name-d7000-manual&po=4303&lang=English

Sb-600 not beeping, images completely black (underexposed)

Series of images is the KEY. If the Power you set the SB-600 is HIGH it will take a LONGER time to recycle than the SB-800. If you try to take a photo before the SB-600 is ready you will get a dark image. The randomness you get is due to the time between shots. In general try to run remote flashes at a lower power so they recycle faster. I like the SB-800 because it can take 5 cells. 5 cells can really make a difference in the recycle time (faster) The SB-600 only takes 4 cells so it is slower.

Battery leaks in flash light battery compartment

Take a Q-tip and wet the end with a solution of water and baking soda. Repeat until you have cleaned all of the sulfate (the white powder) from the contacts and battery compartment. Use dry Q-tips to prevent a buildup of the solution. After the sulfate is removed, rub a clean eraser mounted to the end of a pencil, on the contacts to remove any oxide which acts as an insulator. Once cleaned, put in new batteries and it should work. If you are not going to use your camera for some time, remove the batteries.

SB600 will switch on but no ready light and won't

It is strange that all three units have the same problem. I am assuming that when you tested your three units that you did so by attaching them to your camera. If all three are bad, it could be that the problem is in your camera. Let's disregard the ready light for the moment because the ready light could be bad or your flash is only partially charging. As an experiment, turn on one of your SB-600's and after allowing time for it to charge, short out the contact pins on the flash shoe. If it flashes, it could be the camera at fault. The SB-600 is an older unit. If you have three of them, I will assume that you are using them professionally and they have had heavy consistent use. As a result, your speedlight's capacitors may have reached the end of their life span. Let's look at what may be happening. By charging, it means that the batteries in your speedlight are supplying a low voltage to a capacitor bank that charge to a higher voltage that is sufficient to fire the flash tube. All capacitors deteriorate over time and use and will lose their ability to charge and maintain a charge. Given the age of your equipment, that may be the case. If you have the knowledge and equipment, I would replace the capacitors on one of your units and see if it works. If not, I would send one of the units into Nikon for a free repair estimate. They can be reached at 1-800-645-6687 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.
