    Hi... sorry I haven't been chatting.... and sorry for returning back with the same old issue... My remote was working but then it stopped a few weeks ago so went out and bought new battory for it.. It seems to want to work, when I press it, it seems to want to fire and even the timer setting seems to want to work but the shutter will not go off... I think it might be time to send it back.. but I do not have the packaging it came in so perhaps its time to move on to a new brand... I do not think I would be recommending this product to anyone.. its caused me too many issues.. I was wondering if I have missed something.. The connection is in as tight as it will go.. it seems to want to work.. it goes from red to green... but it does not trip the shutter.... perhaps I need to do something else.. I am sure I have it all set ok... It was working until the battery died.... Perhaps I should have sent it back from the beginning...

    Any suggestions would be appreciated...

    I have just sent hahnel an email... with a link to this tread... I really love my remote but not when it doesn't work.. I was wondering.. The light comes on and flashes to green and it focuses.. so it must be transmitting.. but the shutter is not released.. Perhaps the battery is not powerful enough.. Just a thought..

    I press the test button, it focuses and appears ready to shoot but nothing happens.. When this first happened it was due to the very tight two part connection cable having to be pushed very hard together.. They are connected ok now.. so I think its always been a dud, very temperamental.. ....

    Hi,

    Check that the camera can focus to a sharp setting. When I take pics of the NN Panoheads and the focus is in between the rail towards a white background, the shutter release is blocked. It is ready when you see a steady point in the viewfinder.

    Thank you Heinz... It focuses ok... I can see the lens focusing when pressing down the remote button.. its fine.. but it fails to trigger the shutter... It focusses fine... It has been working but it stopped.. I did not know why but then I realised it must be the battery.. so I bought a new one... I bought two and tried both just incase it was the battery but its the same... I have made sure the cable are connected ok... I must be missing something.. or forgetting something.... I have tried it on Auto and Manual.. No luck..

    I have just tried it all again.. I am sure its a dodgy remote.. I couldn't even turn it off.. Sometimes its necessary to press the remote to make the red light go off but this time I wouldn't even do that.. I had to take the battery out to make it turn off... So... I don't want the same brand but I really like a wireless remote.. any suggestions on which one to buy....? No way will I buy another one of these...

    Well, things are looking up.. Hubby just received an email from Garry Gibbs Camera House... saying to send it back for a replacement... :).. I never received an email the first time it would not work... I have asked if I should return without packaging since I threw it away.. oh hum.. silly me.. I did a search online for faults with this wireless remote but could not find any so perhaps its normally reliable..

    .... and when I first had an issue I sent this mob an email http://gerrygibbscamerawarehouse.com.au/ but they never bothered to respond.. So.. I have never bought anything from them since... If they had learnt from my issue they might have been able to help others.. Good customer service is at the top of my list...
