NO! The trigger voltage on the 1900 is much too high and could fry the flash circuitry of the D3100. DON'T DO IT!!!

Which of the following Vivitar flashes will work on a nikon D5100? Vivitar auto thyristor 2800 or vivitar electronic flash 1900?

they should both fire, but they were not meant for modern digital cameras, and the auto features the the camera may have won't be able to control this flash. so it just a manual strobe, to set your camera on manual and experiment.

that little pin on the bottom as well as the 2 on the inside of the flash shoe should fire the flash.

good luck.

Is Vivitar 1900 electronic flash compatible with canon eos 550d

You have to measure the trigger voltage on the pins of the flash with a voltmeter to make sure it is at 8 volts. If it is higher, you will fry the Nikon. Use the center pin and the one at the edge of the shoe to measure the voltage.
