Flash does not work on D 80 Nikon
\015 I recently purchased a Nikon D80 kit. I already owned the sunpak 4000af flash unit. I was told by the salesman if it worked on my N65 Nikon it should work on my D 80. It works in the manual modes but does not work in auto mode. Do I have to set something in the cameras menu to let it communicate with the flash. I ve read the book, talked to the place I bought the camera with no help, I need someone to tell me if it will work on this camera or if I have to upgrade to a newer flash. Thanks Kevin\015
You will need to upgrade your flash. The salesman was incorrect. Here is Nikon's answer on external strobes: NikonUSA

Flash has stopped working on my Nikon D40. I've tried a factory reset, tried to get to the flash setting but that menu option is no longer available (highlighted) in any mode. I'm thinking it's broken and not a setting thing. Everything else works fine and it still takes pictures just without the flash. The flash pops up when needed but no flash obviously.
There's a common problem in the flash arm. I found this link that shows a simple repair. If you use this and make the repair yourself, understand that you will void your warranty if you have one. Also, do not touch the bulb as you'll get oil on it ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
Hi there, I have a nikon D50 camera and the inbuilt flash unit does not work any more.... it pops up in dark conditions bu tthen fails to fire. The camera will adjust the shutter speed as if the flash was turned off, and the flash doesn't work in any flash mode or any function mode. Could it be the bulb perhaps? I have reset the camera as well to no avail. please help! thanks :)
Hello, and welcome to Fixya.. This is a very common and known issue with the D50 camera by Nikon. Some buyers flash only works once and then quits. Its due to the speed of which the flash pops up, it literally breaks ... Digital Cameras
D90 flash I just bought a new Nikon D90 and I was on a shoot and the built in flash popped up (in bright sun in manual mode) and I cannot get it to stay down. the camera will work but only to 200 shutter speed. if I hold the flash down then it will work at all shutter speeds. Any Ideas on how to get the flash to go down?

Hi, I've just recieved my nikon d90 back from a repair and service, and although everything appears to be working fine, whenever I want to change shooting modes,( auto, P, M, flash off etc), they only work once I have selected them, and then turned the camera off and back on. In other words I cannot be shooting in the Auto mode and then switch to "flash off auto"....all that happens is that the auto focus works but the shutter will not operate. If I switch the camera off and on however, I can t
I'm going to assume at this point that the camera has been serviced correctly. What I'd suggest is that you look in your manual and find where you can reset your camera back to the factory default settings. Okay here are a few thoughts that might be ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

Hi, My Nikon Coolpix S3000 flash has stopped working after only 3 weeks of having the camera and an aeroplane icon is also showing on the display. I have had the camera at elevation and in humidity, but with a new camera I would think this would not be a problem. I have also charged the camera totally but the flash still does not work. Please advise me any fix. Many thanks Shelley
Sounds like you somehow put the camera in "airplane" mode which keeps the camera from interfering with the electronics on an airplane. Change the mode. ... Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D90 with 18-105 mm lens. Lately, the onboard flash has not been firing even when I try to enforce it by having the flash popped up. It will only fire if I do one of the following: 1) unmount the lens from the camera body and then re-mount it back on, which the flash will fire maybe once or twice and that's it!, or 2) switch on a different lens which definitely works with the flash firing every single time. What needs to be done? I purchased this lens last December (2009). Is
