    If you are trying to avoid movement, you can also use the self timer feature.

My tv remote is not working inasmuch as I am unable to change channels. Tv is on BBC 1 and that is all I can watch


You go buy a universal remote and test your patience by typing in each of several codes for you TV until you find one that works. Some TV sets or attached boxes allow cable changing manually. Others do not.

But before you do that, make sure you have pressed either CABLE or TV at the top of your remote. You possibly have accidently pressed a button to control the DVD or some accessory device, rendering the remote unable to control the TV.

I might try to "autotune" the TV, i. e. preset the setup menu that causes it to search for the channels which the TV can receive. Something possibly may have happened in that realm.

And, you might even call your cable provider and ask them to reset your cable connection. You see, the problem might not be in the TV or the remote.

Good luck.

The bootlid on my 2003 magna AWD will not close after having a problem with the remote, how can this be fixed? Anyone please?


probably would be a idea to remove the carpet cover that hides the cable that releases the boot. if you lay the rear seats down you can look into the boot from the rear seats of the car. the problem may be in the cable that normally dosent get used until there is a issue with the remote on the key. before going to the test run via the rear seats and having some one shut the boot while watching its operation. check where the cable attaches to the latch and get some one to operate the manual cable that is located in the glove box . check that it has full travel and isn't broken or something hasn't fallen into its way of travel. lubricate with lithum grease the moving parts of the mechanism. manually operate the latch by hand then try to shut the boot. but with the panel off and the mechanism exposed some one using the cable in the glove box and you viewing its operation it should become clearer what the issue is

Cable release problem


The D3100 works with the MC-DC2 or compatible remote. See page 177 of the manual: http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/kie88335f7869dfuejdl=-cww2/D3100_EN.pdf

Basically, you plug the remote in, then use the button on the remote just as you'd use the shutter release button.

ML3 REMOTE USERS GUIDE needed in english


Nikon really doesn't have a user's guide for the ML-L3. It comes with a slip of paper telling you how to change the battery, and that's about it. The thing only has one button on it, after all.
The precise steps for using the remote vary from camera to camera. If your camera works with the ML-L3, there will be something in the camera's manual telling you how. It's usually called "Release Mode" or "Shooting Mode." Basically, you set the camera to a remote mode, then use the button on the remote instead of the shutter release button on the camera.

Is ther a remote for the nikon s3000


No. Nikon does not make a remote for the S3000. Its shutter release button is not threaded for an old-fashioned cable release, and there is no provision for remote operation via the USB connection.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Is it possible to achieve a 20sec shutter release via remote control


With or without the remote control, in the M exposure mode you can select the bulb/time setting. Without the remote, this opens the shutter when you press the shutter release and holds it open while you keep the shutter release pressed. With the remote, this opens the shutter when you press the button on the remote and keeps it open until you press the button again. This allows you to keep the shutter open for up to 10 minutes.

I couldn't get the Nikon ML-L3 Remote Control to work on my Nikon D40x when I was using the external flash (SB-900). When I took it off, it worked fine. Is there a way to get it to work with the external...


Set the camera's release mode to one of the two remote modes. Quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. Delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To set the camera's release mode, press the button to bring up the information display. Press the button to put the cursor into the information display. Use the cursor keys to highlight the release mode (fifth item from the top along the right edge) and press OK. Use the cursor keys to highlight the desired mode and press OK.

Full details are in the manual in the "Release Mode" section (page 53 in my copy).

No instructions need to know how to operate


The Nikon MC-EU1 Remote Cord is an accessory available for the Nikon COOLPIX 880/885/990/995 4300/4500/5000/5400/5700/8700 cameras. The MC-EU1 Remote Cord is 80 cm long and allows the camera to be fired remotely like a cable release for a film-based camera.

The MC-EU1 Remote Cord's main function is to prevent camera shake. As well as the shutter release function, the MC-EU1 has the following functions.
1. operate the camera's zoom remotely,
2. advance or return images in the playback mode,
3. Controlling interval photography, automatically fire the cameras over a given interval.
Note this is the only Nikon remote cord available NIKON COOLPIX cameras and is only compatible with the cameras listed.

The Nikon MC-EU1 remote cord has two Interval modes, A and B

In Interval Mode A: the first photograph is taken at the start; and subsequent photographs taken at the specified time intervals, thereafter.

In Interval Mode B: the first photograph is not taken until the specified time interval has passed and subsequent photographs taken at the specified time intervals.

These modes can be selected by pressing the MODE button. The device cycles through settings in the order, Remote Mode, Interval Mode A, and Interval Mode B. When the Remote Mode is selected, the LCD panel displays Remote; when Interval Mode A is selected, Interval appears together with the letter A and Interval Mode B is indicated by Interval and the letter B.


The interval Modes, allow you to take photographs one after the other at a selected interval, which can be set in increments of one second to any value from two minutes to twenty-four hours. Interval modes are only available when the camera is in recording mode and cannot be used when the camera is in playback mode.

Setting the Interval

1. Setting the camera to recording mode and the remote cord to Interval Mode A or B, the interval setting will be shown in the remote cord LCD display. Items currently selected for editing will flash. Each time the selection (SEL.) button is pressed, the item selected will change as shown below.


Select the desired time by altering the settings (second [S], minute [M], or hour [H]) one at a time. While the item is flashing, press the down button to decrease the time set, or the up button to increase the time set. The value displayed will change by one each time either button is pressed.

2. After adjusting settings, press the selection button until the display is no longer flashing.

Starting Interval Mode Photography

• Half-pressing the remote shutter-release button has the same effect as half-pressing the shutter-release button on the camera, readying the camera to take a photograph. If the interval is set to less than two minutes when the shutter-release button is half-pressed, the interval display will flash. Choose an interval of two minutes or more.

• Full-pressing the remote shutter-release button has the same effect as full-pressing the shutter-release button on the camera, starting interval mode photography.

• When the camera enters interval mode, it will either take a picture and then begin the count to the next photograph (Interval Mode A), or begin the count to the first photograph (Interval Mode B). The Interval indicator in the LCD display will flash while interval mode is in effect.

Ending Interval Mode Photography

• Half-pressing the remote cord shutter-release button while an interval mode is in progress stops the interval photography.

• Photography will also stop should you run out of available space on the compact flash card; In this case, the number of exposures remaining displayed in the LCD panel will be 000.



The MC-EU1 has a feature that when the zoom button is pressed twice in rapid succesion, the camera will start zooming until this function is cancelled by pushing the button a third time. If this function is not cancelled, no other function is possible with the MC-EU1. If the MC-EU1 does not respond as expected please ensure you have not activated the zoom function.

How do you use a remote shutter release for a canon d 50 slr , and where do you find the timer on same camera?


You need a remote shutter release button attached either via a cable, or wirelessly. Canon make several models, as do many third parties.

As for self timer, press the AF-Drive Button then use the select wheel to move from single shot to high speed, slow speed or self-timer modes.
