New SB-800 died

My new SB-800 is under a month old. After a big shoot today, it died. I tried several new sets of batteries, with no luck. Did I perhaps fry something after 700+ pops? I'm DESPARATE - I'm shooting a wedding in two days!\ Help!

SB-800 Mode button won't work

The SB-800 is a wonderful flash, had a few used them on many shoots. The mode button could be internally stuck not making it connection, or perhaps broken, You could take it apart see if there is some type of obstruction and the like under the button. Or send it to a service technician. The SB-800 continue commanding a high price, getting it fixed is to me well worth the cost.

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

Won't power on

No power, no red light, no LCD, probably a faulty main circuit board, new circuit board required.

Sb 800 and sb900 overexposing

It might be you are not making a good contact on your camera and flash .

Are you using a cord to get the flash off the camera . If so the cord could be intermittent .

Flash blows out the image!!!

hi ,

it could be possible that the light sensor (the device under the red transparent plastic) in front of the flash is already failing. to test,set the camera mode to auto then cover the sensor with your hand and do some test shots, the images should be overexposed if the sensor is covered, then shoot some photos without covering the sensor, the images should be properly exposed , otherwise it might already be a light sensor failure .
