    You are probably using too fast a shutter speed when you use the flash in another than auto mode. Try setting your shutter speed to 1/125 and you should be OK.

    What Marcel said...

    The D3300 does not support high-speed sync
    , (none of the D3x00 or D5x00 bodies do) so you're limited to 1/200s and below shutter speeds. Anything faster, and you will have black bars on the image.

    Shutter is too fast. In auto it's limiting the shutter speed.

    Auto mode should drop the shutter speed into a flash friendly speed.

    yes all mine do

    could be your camera may have the high speed flash mode set (available on some cameras).

    try the two-green-dot button reset on the camera and see if the trouble goes away
