    Haha hope not... Maybe it was the hard usage of flash over the last 2 days as I was helping to cover a camp so the indoor parts required extensive use of the flash. Sigh, wasted the $90 man

    Before this the flash sometimes would not go 'ready' and I had to repeatedly switch off and on again before it will register as 'ready', so maybe that was a warning sign already.

    I rmb when I bought the guy said 'Export set no warranty', so I guess I will have to treat it as a write-off?
    Wow, that was fast. Ya write off warranty. How many estimated shots u did total with ur SB3000? Mines at abt 150 shots. I thought I was going to be the 1st to kill a SB-3000 (like with the AF-540FGZ), looks like u out done me^^;

    Well, over the last 2 days alone I think I went through about 600 shots with flash, mostly off a bounce card. Another 400 shots from other shoots etc.

    So I guess if you put it that way it's no wonder that the flash died

    No way to safely & cost-effectively troubleshoot and repair? I suspect I may have fried the capacitors.

    Ya I think it's capcitor or could be the board like my 540. Try asking those camera repair shops.
