SOURCE: Nikon SB600 flash menu locked.
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.

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.
