This flash unit will flash the red light until the capacitor is charge. Also the mode your shooting will flash. What exactly is flashing?

SOURCE: Speedlight SB-80DX TTL Flash ideal for NIKON D60?

It works but it's not ideal. The SB-80DX won't support TTL flash on the D60, only non-TTL Auto and Manual. The SB-800 is the most capable flash unit for the D60, but you can get full TTL operation with the less expensive SB-600 or SB-400.

From the Nikon site, do you have one of these flash units.
Support for the Nikon Creative Lighting System when using SB-900, SB-600, or SB-400 Speedlights, or the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander
If so You set the flash mode to "comander" the pop up flash must be UP

This Video by Nikon shows how but you will have to read the manual to get a full description go to the flash section http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d300s/index.html

Then look at them all :)

Nikon Speedlight SB-600 keeps firing


I believe that there is a safety feature built in that if the voltage in the capacitor gets too large the flash will fire, to prevent damage, could be this that is faulty, if it is a new main circuit board is required.

My sb 600 fires with the camera but it seems not illuminate


Definately a settings problem. The camera will only syncronize on one specific speed. Youe best bet is to use auto. For manual, you'll have to set the shutter speed at the sync speed.

Flash Sync Speed
  • up to 1/250 X-Sync Speed
  • up to 1/8000 FP High Speed Sync
  • Red-eye reduction
    Red-eye reduction with slow sync
    Rear-curtain sync
    Slow sync
    Front-curtain sync (normal) Flash Sync Modes
  • 1) i-TTL: TTL flash control by 1,005-pixel RGB sensor, built-in flash, SB-800, SB-600, SB-400: i-TTL balanced fill-flash and standard i-TTL flash
    2) AA (Auto Aperture-type) flash: Available with SB-800 used with CPU lens
    3) Non-TTL Auto: Available with Speedlights such as SB-800, 28, 27, and 22S
    4) Range-priority manual flash; available with SB-800 Flash Control

    Hi Kathy,

    Are you ready?

    1. Make sure the Nikon SC-29's Red Panel's Lock Switch is set to the Left. Pointing at Left Black Screw.
    2. Connect the Nikon SC-29's (Red Panel) to your camera's Hotshoe by pushing it as far as it goes.
    3. Turn Lock Switch to the Right (turn CW). This locks down to camera.
    4. Make sure Nikon SC-29 (other ends) AF-ILL is set to OFF.
    5. Make sure your Nikon SB-800's Lock Switch is set to the left side.
    6. Attach your Nikon SB-800 into this Hotshoe.
    7. Switch the Lock Switch on flash to the right.
    8. When you wants to AF from flash, set AF-ILL to "OFF"
    9. For the best results, set AF-ILL to "ON".

    I teaches, do repairs, services and modifications on all photographic equipments.

    I hope they are helpful to you as well as for any Nikon Photographers using the Nikon SC-29 Cable.

    Mine has Autofocus, ITTL, Slave and Wireless Radio Remote Flash.

    SB-600 Flash not working


    Make sure both camera and flash are set to TTL automatic mode. One time this happened to me and I had forgotten to lock the flash to the hotshoe connector.
