Nikon D90 Built in flash not working - will a speedlight flash still work? HELP!
Jun 16, 2012

Hi, I am a novice with a Nikon D90. I noticed that the camera's flash will pop up but will not fire. I tried the video in http://vimeo.com/3141400 but could not open the flash hood (I was able to remove the screws, though).

I called Nikon and it will cost me $300++ for shipment and the repair itself plus 3-4 weeks of waiting time. I am going on a trip for the 4th of July and will need the camera badly.

I am looking at buying an external flash from amazon. It will be so much cheaper to get a speedflash than to send the camera to Nikon.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000KKPN5C/ref=s9_simh_gw_p14_d0_g421_i2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0M354APTCNPVT9K3HBVA&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846

Any thoughts? Will the speedflash work even if my built in flash doesn't work?

Any help is very much appreciated!!!

Thanks!

Nikon D90
