    I dropped my SB-600

    Well, I dropped it once, from a height of about two feet.

    It fell off a lighting stand from a height of 7 feet.

    It finally stopped working after it fell off the lighting stand for the second time. Now it won't even turn on...

    I have all the documentation that came with the flash EXCEPT the receipt/proof of purchase. The flash is still within it's one year warranty. What do I do?

    I don't think that dropping it is covered by warranty. :<(

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    See if you can get the ladder fixed first.

    They'll know that it was dropped as soon as they open it up. It's a lot easier to just be honest with them and see what they can do for you at the service center. It could be something simple and easy to fix, but I'd consider keeping a better grip on the next one....

    I dunno. I had a lens slip out of my hand and hit the deck from three feet and it now resides in the trash. Tile floors and lenses are not compatible, and sometimes I am about as graceful as a three legged giraffe with a trick knee. )
