I'm trying to understand what you are saying.

Is your SB600 mounted in the hot shoe? If so, the command window on the SB600 is not used. The commands are sent to the SB600 through the hot shoe.

So covering the command window would not change the image. Something else must be going on here.

What modes are you using on the SB600 and camera?
