Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash

Broken Built-in Diffuser Plate


Maybe for extended use, maybe a weak point of the flash, but my built-in diffuser plate was broken off from the flash. It's only one side of the little hinge that's broken off. Does anybody know where I can find a spare part to replace it, or how else I can repair it? Thanks.

    I recently purchased one second hand that is missing the build in diffuser (from the Nikon SB-800).

    How bad is this for photographing, what are my options.

How to diffuse flash on camera i have fixed flash not pop up

One inexpensive way would be to hold a thin white handkerchief or white tissue paper over the flash. Don't press it against the surface of the flash, just hold it loosely to cover the flash. Be careful the material doesn't extend over the lens.

My rebel t1i eos 500 built in flash won't pop up

Hi, I have to Canon Rebel t1i and I had the same problem (built in flash not working). I tried a number of remedies I found on forums etc but none worked. I then tried this. In the external flash housing is a metal sprung plate which surrounds the five circular pins (one big, four small at the rear). If you get a small straight headed screwdriver and lift the front of this plate and at the same time pull it back towards you it will come out altogether.
I then removed the four small screws being careful not to drop them and took off the mount for the external flash and then tried the flash it opened straight away. I then cleaned all the area of the mount and the two plates and replaced them all ensuring I fitted them exactly as before. I then checked the camera again and presto working fine. I hope this helps everyone with the problem.

Have a kr 250 that has a very weak spark, won't run, any sugestions. Gerald

there are seneral reasons why it has a weak spark:
1. the ignition coil might be weak.
2. The CDI id defected.
3. If it is contact point,adjust the timing.
4. If it is contact point, maybe in the condenser,so try
to replace it
5. Check the primary coil,maybe it is already weak.

My speedlite keeps flashing the zoom control and freezes

Make sure the built-in diffuser is pushed in all the way... that diffuser is only designed to work when in "14-mm" mode so whenever that diffuser is down, even just a little bit, the entire display will flash and 14 mm will be shown as the focal length of the flash.

Zoom range 14-17mm

make sure the diffusion dome and the built in wide angle adaptor are off. If the diffusion dome is on, it will only work as 14mm and 17mm without the diffuser but with the wide angle panel.
