Has anyone ever had an issue with their D-700 Nikon losing contact with there flash. I use the sb-900 most of the time and the display just blinks on and off.. tried cleaning contacts etc.. also tried the sb-800 and still the same problem.

Thanks in advance

Known issue...Nikon's fix is to replace the hot shoe with an updated version, but people have successfully retentioned  the spring mechanism.

Do a search. There was a recent thread where a poster explained how he fixed it himself.
