For some reason I cannot get the standby light on my SB-28 to go out. I don't know if it's affecting the shots that I'm making because the flash still works, but I don't know if it's giving me the correct amount of fill flash. The light will go out if I turn the unit off but will reappear when it's powered up.

According to the manual the light should go out when the shutter button is pressed on my F100, when I turn the SB-28 off and on, or when the flash button is pressed. I've changed the batteries and cleaned the contacts with a pencil eraser. No luck.

Has anyone had this experience themselves? I would hate to send it off for repairs if it's just something small. Thanx in advance for your help.
