    Hey about a half a year ago I ordered a Nikon Dedicated Sunpak auto 266D Thyristor Flash for my Nikon D50 but when I put it on my camera it won't fire or let me take a picture and the little flash square thing on my lcd blinks. Is there any setting that I need to change or something to make my flash work? Or did I just waste money on the flash?

    It may not be compatible with your camera - google "flash trigger voltages" to find a chart comparing cameras and flashes. I've seen a few of those on ebay going for under $10, so hopefully you didn't pay too much for it if it isn't compatible.

    Oh, I should probably add that unsuitable trigger voltages may damage your camera or flash equipment, so find out first if they're compatible before carrying on.

    Have you tried it in manual mode? I don't think it does iTTL.

    Yep, i have tried it in manual mode and turned off iTTL on my camera, didn't work. No worries though, i just recieved my Nikon SB 600 today.
