Have you got your AA battery type set in custom memory d11 ?. It could be your batteries, I have had problems with rechargeable Ni-MH batteries lately in my sb 700 flash. they were charged but would not turn on the flash , I tried several sets and then found a set that would turn it on ,much to my relief. Later I found that pushing the batteries into the holder and rotating them before closing the door got them working. It appears that it takes very little to stop the current flowing, the contacts on the batteries were slightly corroded although it was not visible to me. Removing the tray and replacing it with the other battery type has no effect on the camera , and turning it on without a tray in does not effect the on-board battery the camera focuses and shutter fires, no problem. My camera is set to use battery in the pack before on-board battery.
