My SB-900's interior flash tube exploded today. I literally took one test shot and a very large "pow" came out of it.
This unit was a remote unit attached to a Pocket Wizard TT5.

Now my questions are, 1) Has anyone ever experienced this before- is this common, and 2) is the only repair option to send it to Nikon?

Thanks,

Doug
