I need help again. Last night my SB-28 hit the floor. It was knocked off a bench onto a carpeted floor. The battery door came open and the batteries hit the floor, but once I put the batteries back in the flash would come on, test fire, etc. When I put the flash on my N-80, it remains in standby mode, and the camera does not detect the flash is attached. I attached my SB-26 and there are not problems. It appears as though the contacts on my SB-28 may be damaged, although there does not appear to be any external damage. Does anyone have any suggestions? If I do have to send the flash to Nikon for repair, which one?

Look at the pins on the bottom of the foot. Are they all the same length? They are spring-loaded, so if one is short it may be jammed. For a repair center, go to the NikonUSA site and begin the laborious, confusing search for the list of Nikon Authorized Repair Centers. Find one in your area and call to verify the address and to get shipping instructions.
