By not clear do you mean out of focus or streaked due to movement? Try using a higher ISO setting in order to allow for a faster shutter speed and/or use a tripod.

I can duplicate your issue on my Nikon D810. You may have set it to display the areas that are over exposed or "clipped". Go to "Playback Menu", select "Playback display options", uncheck "Highlights".

Maybe is to bright and flash is not required. Try to use other settings and force flash to see if flash still works.

maybe you need a new battery. They have a specific life.

if the problem is with the camera itself, then it is probably the master board - and you might consider whether Nikon repair is worth the cost.

I would seek help from Sunpak customer service

I would first: Check the test button on the flash - if all is good (and light flashes when button pushed), then
second: switch camera AND flash to manual mode and with flash attached, hit shutter release. flash should pop.
if all is good, I would use manual settings to set exposure for room I am in (yes, indoors) - and then flash again. Flash should go off on attached strobe (not internal flash).
If yes - then I would move camera to an auto mode and repeat. If not - then I would check settings to find out whether I have turned off hot shoe or hot shoe is otherwise blocked from completing electrical circuit. If the camera is relatively new, consider re setting to factory settings.

There is an INTERNAL battery that you cannot change. This battery controls the memory and functions. When the battery dies, you must send the camera in for service.

That is likely a job for an experienced repair technician, not for DIY.

First, I'm not a Nikon tech.
* Wow, old school. I had 3 nikkormats even the 1/2 frame one. Well I still got them but I use my phablet now.
* Sticky shutter usually means the camera needs cleaning and probably a spring replacement. The shutter is exposed every time the lens is taken off or the back is opened.
* Lots of stuff and dirt gets into the body. I've tried cleaning fluids but that's not a good idea if your using the wrong fluid or spray it in the wrong place.
* Here is a Forum that may address the issue;
* You should take it to a camera shop (older one) to have it checked, cleaned, and lubricated.

It is mostly due to changing the exposure compensation. You can change it from +2 ....0 ....... -2. +2 Makes it Brighter while -2 makes it darker... On the back of the camera you will see an OK button surrounded by a disk that on the right side shows [+/-]. You use this to change exposure compensation. When you get the camera READY to take a photo you can use that [+/-] button. When you push it you can adjust it to zero (o) normal or to make it lighter or darker.
