Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-600 TTL Flash

1 Answer

My Nikon SB-600 speedlight seems to have died - only had it 2 years. Could it be because of battery leakage - I found some suspicious looking wet-stuff inside the case. Batteries haven't been there that long and I have used it fairly regularly over the past few months. Can this cause it to die???? I went to use it last night and it gradually faded away - the display panel just went blank and then nothing. Batteries were new but maybe the last lost leaked - they were cheap ones.

You may be lucky because the battery acid may not have gone beyond the contacts in the battery chamber: open battery chamber and clean out especially at the bottom of the chamber and blow out any loose stuff when you finished cleaning ( use pencil erazor or something similar , but do not use sand paper or anything that will damage chrome plating of the contacts ; you do not want corrosion at later stage ).

Bought a Nikon Speedlight SB-600 in August. Tested the flash and it fired ok. I took out the flash a few days ago to use at a graduation and the "ready" light did not come on. Consequently it did...

Hi grwcamp, Sorry to hear about it not working at the graduation. Are in the correct position (I am sure you did but, we must start someplace). Look inside, see if there is battery acid in there.
If with new/fresh batteries it still does not work call Nikon. You have a warranty on it so it should be covered.

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

I have a Nikon Speedlight SB-600 that needs repair. The flash does not operate. I believe there is no connection made with batteries.

Check the battery contact make sure they are clean. If a battery leaked, even a little battery fluid on the contact then that could be the problem.

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.
