Flash Norma Fil-46 ?

Just found this baby from my dad's closet. Wonder whether it'll work with my Pentax K100D Super? It sure fits.

I'm new with Pentax but from my previous experience, perhaps the first thing you can do is to measure the flash connector voltage, as explained in this article Measuring the Voltage on a Vivitar 285 or 285HV Flash Head - Life is a Prayer.com

Dont quote me but generally less than 6volt is good for digital camera. Also, if you eventually able to make the flash works, please tell me because I have similar problem with different flash (read my thread)

I just read about it on some Estonian forums, they say it's better not to put it on as it'll probably fry the camera.

Yes, of course. I've measured my flash's voltage and it should be fine. But apparently there's something else causing it not to work as expected
