      If it's a wireless one did you check if transmitter and receiver are on same channel ? generally you can change that with some tiny switches on back of each one or in battery compartment ;)

        Yes Vincèn, I see that on the instructions.. but I do not understand it... it says 3 on the transmitter and 3 on the other thing on the camera.. but how do I make sure they are the same.... or set on 3.....

          I have just realised that there was a film of plastic over the switches.. I set them both to 3... I then set my camera to continuos high shooting but nothing happened. I then tried the icon with remote but that did not work either.. emm... what can I be doing wrong....

            If you set your camera to regular mode one shot, does it work or not ?

              No Vincèn... The red light is on.. if I press the other button the green light shows.. when I press the remote the red light flickers.. I have take bracketing off and I set it continuous and remote but it will not take a photo.. I can take the photo manually.. but not with the remote...

                  Did you use the correct cable between receiver and cameras ? as often these remotes include multiple cables to fit with different cameras !

                      Wrong ! I never succeeded myself to get a remote working when connected through a GPS to Camera ! Plug the received directly on camera and it should work fine :) Which camera do you have ?

                          I have a D90 and remote is supposed to be plugged in same square connector as GPS (the one labelled GPS) so you have to use either the remote or the GPS ! So you should have a connector for your remote compatible with that socket ;)

                            but you said above that it was wrong.. the only cable that I have that will fit in anything is the GPS... emmm.. so confusing... Its supposed to be for the D90... why is it sooo hard... Perhaps there is something on the control panel to tell the camera that that its not a gps but a remote instead....

                              ok so sorry if my explanations were not clear You should plug remote receiver directly on D90 GPS port and not through the GPS unit remote connector ! You have absolutely nothing to setup on camera, it should work immediately once plugged on camera (just switch off and back on camera once plugged and that's it !)
