Having problems with your Nikon D700 Digital Camera ?

My Nikon D700 fires my SB900 flash uncontrollably. It drives me nuts!

Answers :

Is the modeling flash turned on? It will release a strobe burst before the flash. If it is set to be activated by the button on the front of the camera and you keep hitting it with you finger it will drive you nut and blind everyone around
This may be due to something loose or internal damage in the camera's printed circuit. Also this can be due to settings. Try to go to the menus and reset all to factory default. Later you can pick the settings you want, if it works.

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
