Ok what did i break now, flash doesnt work (as it used to)

I have an SB700 and a D3100

Yesterday i put the flash on the camera, turned the flash on and it wont fire. It almost seems like the camera doesn't detect/drive the flash. The flash compensation controls and the flash sync options are not available. The LCD on the flash shows the TTL communication icon but rest of the LCD appears as though it is not connected to the camera (ie doesn't zoom along with lens, etc...).

After some fiddling and power up sequences I noticed that it now only works properly if I attach while the camera body is off. What gives, it used to work just fine with the flash off being attached while the camera is on.

Nikon D3100
