    Replaced the batteries on Nikon SB-28 and everything on the LCD screen
    started blinking. No matter what I do or what combination of buttons
    pressed ....... even one recommendation to "to hold the on/off button
    down and keep it held down while closing the battery cover." .....
    nothing works.

    Any suggestions?...

  3. You might try the following. - Remove the batteries, and then short the
    terminals together for a few seconds.....This allows/forces any capacitance
    in the electronics to discharge. Then remove the short and replace it with
    the new batteries.

    Tried that. Also put it in a plastic bag and placed it in the freezer
    overnight.
    Just now I tried a 3rd set of batteries. (First Duracells, then
    Energizers, the Sony). Got a lot of fresh batteries rolling around the
    table but the SB-28 just keeps on blinking when I put them in.
