A change was made in the flash power connector on later Nikon Speedlights and the Power Bracket Model SK-6. It is impossible to connect a flash with the older (square) connector to a newer SK-6 or vice versa. The flash on the left has the older square-style connector, while the one on the right has the newer connector. Both the Speedlight and the SK-6 must have the same style connector. Please contact Nikon Service about having the units modified for compatibility.

Nikon d 90 camera Nikon Speedlight SB-600 TTL Flash on auto flash fire when dont any photograph when ready red light on

This sounds like there may be a short in the control circuit that senses the flash command. First check the wiring and the circuit area where the connector feeds. check to see if the connector circuit is shorted. These are some of the basics. It could be the internal circuit board is shorted.

There are modules available to convert the camera into a Nikon lens. Right below your fill flash on the left hand side of the unit, there is a square button to release your current module and attach the new Nikon module.

Nikon D70s will not shoot

Make sure the hotshoe is clean, this will give the hotshoe a better connection. Make sure you lock the speedlight into place.

Does Nikon D70 come with an additonal bottom to plug in Bowen Flashfill

Are you using the built in speedlight on the camera with the lens hood fitted? If you are this will cast a shadow. Try removing the lens hood when using the pop up flash.
