"SB600 and D90 problem"


Leicester, UK
          

Hello,

I'm trying to fire my SB600 in Manual Mode, connected to my D90 with SC-17 cable. It fires in TTL BL Mode but not in Manual. It's been a long time since I did this and have probably forgotten an important setting!

I need it to fire to trigger my strobes.

Can anyone please help?

It's now firing in Manual Mode after re-attaching. Dodgy contacts maybe? But it was firing in TTL BL mode.

John,

Blue skies here, but is it possible that the first time around you turned your flash on first and then the camera? I notice that ISO settings can be set wrong, if the flash cannot read the camera while powering up. Perhaps that affects the mode to.

Now if you tried to change it to manual and it wouldn't change, then maybe it was a static charge. Stranger things have happened.

Scott,

It's quite possible that I turned the flash on first, but I can't remember.

I also tried an SB18 which only works in Manual. That didn't work at first, but did when I reconnected it. And then the SB600 worked too. I will check the connection sequence next time.

Many thanks for your help.
