Please make the following test in this order:
Does the strobe fire with another camera and does the camera fire another strobe? Strobe fires= Strobe and cables ok, camera settings ok!
Does the strobe fire shortening the right 2 pins on your strobe. Google how to do that before you try it! Strobe fires = Strobe ok!
Does the strobe fire shortening the right pins on your strobe cable connecting the Nikonos bulkhead to the strobe. Strobe fires = Strobe and cables ok!
Does the strobe fire shortening the right pins on the hot shoe connector inside the housing. (Ask Nauticam before and how you do that) Strobe fires = Strobe and cables and hot shoe ok!
Strobe does not fire in one of those steps you tacked down where the problem is; strobe, cable or hot shoe housing
WARNING! Shortening the wrong pins will toast some electronics inside your strobe and/or your housing!
I bought in 2008 a brand new Ikelite DS-125 strobe and it did not work and after days of tests i found a schematic how to shorten the pins
to see if the strobe is working. Unfortunately the strobe was not working and i had to send it back to Ikelite to change the strobe bulb.
P.S. as far as i know there is no setting on the D600 disabling a external strobe triggered by the hot shoe.
