Which flashes work on A3000? Yongnuo and Meike does not fire!

I've been using A-mount for some time. One month ago I bought an A3000 to serve as backup camera, but my Yongnuo flash (YN560IV) didn't work. Read somewhere I need an universal speedlite for Canon or Nikon, then found the simple Meike MK930II.

Both flashes freeze when touching the hotshoe connector. It not only does not fire, I cannot change any settings.

Radio flash (Godox CT-16) didn't work either.

What's the case with other E-mount cameras? Do they work only with Sony flashes too? I'll replace A3000 for A6500 or A7 in the future.
