"Nikon D100 Speedlight not charging"

Hello, This is a stupid newbee question. I've poped up the speedlight and set the mode but the flash is not charging and the batteries are charged. Is there something I'm missing? Thanks

It turns out the flash wasn't opening completely. The problem is fixed and one thing I learned is keep it simple.

And related to this: if you wear a hat with a bill, it is easy to let the bill push the pop-up flash down just enough that it won't fire. This is one reason to always turn your hat around backwards when shooting.

Yep, been there, done that. I also had terrible intermittent trouble with auto white balance on one of my cameras. Usually it would be fine, but sometimes I'd get some really wonky results. Same problem: the D2h (and the D2x) has a white balance sensor on the top of the prism, and a couple of my hats were blocking most of the light getting to them...

And of course, with either of these problems, if you start tinkering with the gear to try to isolate the issue, it will inevitably stop as you are changing the circumstances...
