This indicates your rf603 on camera is transmitting OK.

When I put the 603 on the hot shoe and the 560-III in RF mode, it does not flash. In this mode, when I push half down on the shutter release to focus, the blue light on the flash comes on, as does the flashing red light on the front of the flash, but flash does not fire with shutter release pressed all the way down.

Based upon your posts my best guess is your yn560III has some defect in its rf circuit. If you had access to some other transmitters and yn560III units you could probably confirm this. Looks like you should return the yn560III as defective.
