Sb-800 no flash
Jun 5, 2011

I am shooting with D700 & SB-800. On either of my D700's the SB-800 fires intermittently. What I mean is when the shot is taken the red light on the back of the flash blinks as if the flash was fired, but with out actual flash. It seems that the camera sends the signal to the flash but the flash doesn't fire. I had the hot shoe replaced on one D700 ,but the fixed camera at times doesn't fire. Q Does this seem to be the case that the flash is in need of repair. I have had them for about 4 years, used over the summer months for weddings. Both SB 800's do the same thing. Any thoughts.
