I had the same problem. I have sent my D200 to Nikon France for repair and they solved the problem.

Nikon hot shoe is rated up to 250V (canon's is rated up to 6V) so you can use almost any tipe of flash, except maybe for old studio flashes.
Vivitar 283 (older versions) is ~200V rated, and much lower on newer versions. It should work.

SOURCE: sb600 wireless mode not working...

Remember that even though sb-600 is wireless, it is based on infrared. This usually means having a clear line-of-sight between flash commander and remote flash. Any object that gets in way can block signal from flash commander. Weak batteries in flash will also cause remote operation to be sporadic.

1 - Make sure you don't have your diffuser screen pulled down. This is easy to overlook and will produce that effect.
2 - Reset your flash - hold down the "Mode" and "On/off" button together for a few seconds. This gets you out of any funky mode you could have accidently put yourself in
3 - Put camera in fully auto mode. That clears any weird modes you could have gotten into there
4 - Clean the contacts on the flash and camera. I use a pencil eraser and wipe with alcohol and paper towel. Dirty contacts can cause flash misfire or cause full flash during the preflash mode, which gives you dim or dark photos or sporatic flash operation.

I have dark pictures even with sb600 flash working. Anybody have suggestions? Is it my camera settings? I use iTTL and I think flash is not enough


I don't know what camera you have and I don't know which mode you are using (manual exposure, full auto, shutter or aperture priority, etc.) so I can only make a generalized guess. It may be related to your shutter speed. Although your camera may have a wide range, for example 10 to 1/2000 second, your flash will only be properly triggered and synced over a limited range. I would take a few pictures with the shutter at 1/60 second and see if that helps. Also, on more advanced SLR's you can select a rear curtain mode. See if that may be a factor.

Sb600 doesn't fire well off the sb800


The sb600 needs to be able to see the preflashes of the sb800, so this is probably caused by one of two things.  The first thing I'd check is whether or not the light sensor on the side of the sb600 was covered, blocked, or facing away from the sb800.  I've had problems outdoors when I forgot to have the light sensor face the camera.
If the sensor was facing the camera, it is possible that the flashes didn't have a good line of sight to each other.  That normally shouldn't matter, but if there is a high ceiling and lots of people, it could be the case.  I don't know if it will help, but in any case I would recommend using a StoFen Omnibounce on the sb800 to increase the likelihood that the light finds a direction where a surface to bounce off of is found.  
Good luck.
