I suspect it's just a case of you not understanding the settings or the instructions, or both.

Go into the camera menu and disable the built-in flash. That's what I do.

If that doesn't apply to yours, read the manuals carefully again.

I'm assuming the external flash is a Nikon unit same make as camera? If it's not it may not be wholly compatible.

Nikon equipment is usually very reliable so it's unlikely to be faulty.

I have disabled the on board flash, I have never had this happen before while I used the sb800. I have read both manuals to see if there was a possible solution before I sent in the inquiry....
