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

Can I use my Vivitar electronic flash 1900 with my Nikon D7100?


You will need the ATG Gold SM-512 Adapter.
But this flash is worthless than $5.00 USD.

Buy a Vivitar 285HV.

TTL Flash compatable with pentax K-7


To let a flash work in TTL mode the camera and flash must be from or made for the same brand. Like Metz for Nikon, the Through The Lens measuring of the light, will only work with Nikon camera's. If the Vivitar 850 was compatible with Nikon, you only can use it in TTL mode with a Nikon. If you want to use it on another camera, you have to set the flash and the camera to manual. (sync speed is not allowed to be shorter tan the manual of the camera says..)
The hot shoe should have the same connection. most brands do have their own hot shoe. And never use an old flash or speed light in a digital camera, because with the old ones the high voltage can pass through the hot shoe to the electronics in the camera, damaging the camera.

Its not loading the Capacitor when switched on.


My solution is to stop being stupid and buy a Nikon Flash, instead of trying to save a few bucks.

Vivitar 1900 on nikon d3000


NO!

The trigger voltage of the Vivitar 1900 is too high for the Nikon D3000. Using it without electrically isolating the units will fry the camera.

Nikon D80. Vivitar 4600 Flash unit


That particular unit is probably not a good choice for the D80 because the trigger voltage (the electricity which flows from the flash through the camera circuits to fire the flash) is 19.5 volts, according to http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html - this could possibly damage your camera electronics.

You don't have to stick with Nikon brand Speedlights, but get a modern flash which says it is I-TTL compatible for Nikon.
