Flash wont flash!

The flash turns on, I can hear the humming and the on as well as the ready light turns on, however when I hit the test button or attach to camera the flash does not flash, is the bulb burnt? Can I fix this at an affordable rate?

My nikon sb200 not firing, have a red "go" light but when i hit shutter the internal flash goes off instead of the sb200


I would first: Check the test button on the flash - if all is good (and light flashes when button pushed), then
second: switch camera AND flash to manual mode and with flash attached, hit shutter release. flash should pop.
if all is good, I would use manual settings to set exposure for room I am in (yes, indoors) - and then flash again. Flash should go off on attached strobe (not internal flash).
If yes - then I would move camera to an auto mode and repeat. If not - then I would check settings to find out whether I have turned off hot shoe or hot shoe is otherwise blocked from completing electrical circuit. If the camera is relatively new, consider re setting to factory settings.

Sigma EF-530 DG ST - not working, on test or camera all 6 LED lights displaying. Any thoughts?


I don’t usually play with flash that isn’t built in- I prefer natural light, but...if this were me I would: A) take very fine sandpaper and very lightly go one time over all contacts for the flash and camera. B) I would also see if my button batteries in my camera needed changing. As I remember they have something to do with recognizing lenses and flash attachments. C) I would also make sure the batteries in the flash, although changed, were making proper contact with the battery terminals and might also lightly sand those as well since the flash is little used.

Metz 58 AF with Nikon d90 wont flash


Hi, Bad news for you.

Try this.
  1. put new batteries in flash.
  2. turn flash on off camera.
  3. listen for capacitor to squeal (high pitched whistle). If you hear it it is charging. If not capacitor is bad.
  4. Also should see flash ready light come on. If it does not same as #3 above.
  5. If you pass #3 & 4# above press manual flash/check/test button on flash. No flash means bulb is out. It can be replaced.
Hope this fixed ya. Please rate. Good Luck! Comment back if you need further assistance.

Won't turn on...


It's possible that the convergence IC's may be bad in this set along with a few resistors. A TV repair shop should be able to fix the set for you.
