For some reason the AF-assist illuminator does not work in A or S mode. Only in Auto mode. D600 camera. Can someone tell me what's going on?

    AF-assist illuminator will not work it you are using AF-C. I will work if you are using AF-S or AF-A, be it single AF point or all your AF points, regardless of Aperture Priority (A) , M (full manual), S (shutter priority) or full Auto. Hence, check your AF mode. If you do not know where the AF mode button is, it is the center button you push that's labeled .AF . M located next to the lens release button. Page 2 of your manual item # 13.

    Actually I ran into this issue myself many moons ago.
