Question about Vivitar 1900 electronic flash Flash
It,The 1900 Flash, does not load the capacitor when the switch is switched ON. The batterys are placed in properly and new.Also, there is no burned out components or signs of burnt PC Board, So something is not connecting, as in an open circuit.
My solution is to stop being stupid and buy a Nikon Flash, instead of trying to save a few bucks.

Remove the metal circle oposite to dial (it's glued). Under the circle you will find a metal clip connecting halfs of the flash - pull it out. Flash is ready to open.

Try to check that capacitor by parallel it with a good capacitor.
Any uf capacitor that is close will do. Just make sure you have a 300v or more cap.

This is an indication that you have a problem on the power supply section or on the load because of the following reasons :
1. Over Voltage - the regulator might be cycling on over voltage due to lack of load.
2. Over Current Protection - excessive load or faulty power supply cycling will
trigger the over current protection circuit.
3. Leaky Capacitor - a dried up main filter capacitor or other filter capacitor in the low voltage power supply that is producing an out-of-regulation condition. A bad filter capacitor on the output of a series regulator may result in excessive voltage and the unit will not power up unless isolated.
4. A problem with the microcontroller, relay or its driver, or standby power supply.
