Built-in flash on commander mode doesn't work
7 months ago

Hi!

So I bought my very first speedlight, the sb700, and went right away to use it off camera with the built-in flash on commander mode. Everything was working and ok on the first click, but on the second one the sb700 just didnt fire. Tried hundreds of times after that, changing the position, the channel, resetting the camera, resetting the flash,... until my built-in flash completely stopped firing. It wasnt low battery, I tried to change it for a full one and nothing happened.

Anyway, hours later I tried it all over again: positioning, setting,... and it worked for the first time... and the second didnt work again. Seems like a very short cycle, I have no idea of what can be happening to my equipment... my flash is brand new, I dont think the problem is in it... anyone has any thoughts about it?

I appreciate any answers.
