    So I used it on camera last night with no problems but I went to use it today and it's not firing while on camera.

    It fires if I hit the test button. It fires if I put it on remote and use the on camera flash as the master and it fires if I use the SU-800 as the master. But it doesn't fire if it's on camera as master or regular.

    Any thoughts?

    EDIT: I should add that if I put my SB-600s on the camera they work fine.

    For some reason the body and the speedlight aren't communicating.

    Center contact seems fine by all outward appearances. Interestingly, the ready light still flashes after I trigger the shutter even though the flash doesn't fire.

    And now, after a bunch of times of testing it on and off the camera, I just attached it again(after having just taken it off when it didn't work) and it works fine.

    I wonder what the deal is.
