Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash
No matter if I push the flash button or take a picture all that happens is the ready lights flashes on the sb800 and no flash. Help if you want me to reset the flash or camera please explain what and where the buttons are. THANK YOU.
Let's force the flash to fire:
nstalls four fresh batteries.
Turn on flash, do not connect to camera
Wait until flash is ready
Get a small wire with insulation and strip both ends about 1/8".
With one end of the bare wire lead, touch/hold CENTER TIP
Contact(silver pin from flash).
Make sure flash head is not pointing at your face.
With other end touch bare wire to OUTSIDE Contact (silver on
outside of hot shoe that rides into camera hot shoe rails-this is ground).
Flash should fires, gets a flash out of the flash tube.
If not, you have flash problems.
You most likely hurt the flash by using the dome filter on top of flash.
Over 80% photographers are doing this way when shooting flash photography. And 95% for wedding photographers.
This will shorten the life of the flash.
Even more with that adapter parked onto the flash.
Hope they are helpful to all photographers.
