Here is the link to the user manual if you need it; Check page 62 and see if the reset will work; "Press the MODE and LIGHT buttons simultaneously for 2 or more seconds to reset the custom setups to the default settings." Also see if you get any change from cleaning the battery contacts carefully with a cotton bud/Q-tip with a little gin - sometimes a small amount of invisible dirt on these can stop the battery contacting. If you fancy opening the flash up, then if there is a fuse you will be able to see it - there is no easy to swap fuse that can be accessed from the outside. check if anything else inside is obviously burnt or broken - post back a photo if you can and we may see something to check. I think something fatal but probably replaceable has happened in the control electronics - possibly the screen has died. Check if the cable connecting the screen to the main board inside has come loose. Check the connections at the hinges - they can occasionally get damaged or pulled loose.

Nissan Altima 2000 Manual. Recently had remote starter installed and was working fine for a few days. This morning I remote started the vehicle and when I came out car was off. Try starting the car up...

the remote starter is not going to damage the starter, but if wired wrong it could damage the wiring or fuses, or run the battery down from a short.

My Porsche Key fob no longer unlocks the doors

Insert key into door barrel or ignition lock and turn key, whilst doing this press the unlock/lock button, the led on the dash should flash to indicate this has initialised the key to the car, then remove key and test operation of remote. If this fails then a new remote plus coding to the car by your dealership is needed

Radio CD not working & lights don't flash remote keylock

Sometime the computer in car will shut down a circuit when it sees a problem even if it only occure once. You can try to disconnect the battery for at least 2 min so all sys power off (some have capacitors that mantaine a charge for short time). If a battery disconnect does not clear problem you have go to dealer and have them to clear codes and reset you modules and your preferences

Sb600 wireless mode not working...

Remember that even though sb-600 is wireless, it is based on infrared. This usually means having a clear line-of-sight between flash commander and remote flash. Any object that gets in way can block signal from flash commander. Weak batteries in flash will also cause remote operation to be sporadic.
