Why won't my sb-600 work in command mode with my D80?
Nov 3, 2007

I cannot get my SB-600 to go off in command mode on my D80. I have gotten it to work in the past but not now. Here is what I’m doing. On screen 22 I set the on board flash to command mode, built-in flash to TTL and channel 3. Then I set the SB-600 to wireless mode, it shows the squiggly line, channel 3 and group A. The two diodes on the front of the flash blink every few seconds. I then pop up the built in flash and take a picture. The built in flash goes off but the SB-600 does not even though it is close to the camera and in a direct line of sight. I am also in aperture priority mode.

What am I going wrong?
