New remote not working

Do I have to set up the remote with my camera? The light on the remote isn't even working.

I have just bought a new Nikon D3000 and a ML-L3 remote and I can't work it out. There are no instructions with the remote.

    Yes, I've already removed the plastic tab, and tried a new battery in case the one in there was flat or faulty. Still no luck.

Is there a little clear plastic strip sticking out from the remote? Some times, to prevent battery usage, the battery is insulated with a little plastic thingy that needs to be removed.

Suddenly the monitor on the back of my Nikon D3000 does not light up, so i cannot change any settings, review photos etc. Is it possible I turned it off? How do I fix it?

Try pushing the two buttons that have a little green circle next to them at the same time for two seconds. This should reset all the basic settings on your camera. If this still doesn't work then you should contact your local Nikon authorized service center for repairs. Hope this helps!

My nikon d3000 lens is saying it isn't attached when it is, i've tried cleaning it, taking it off and everything and nothing has worked. what do i do?

If you can go to a camera store or any store that sells this model, and has a display model out, you can try putting another (same) lens on your camera. If the problem still occurs, we know the issue is with the camera body sensors.

If it shows as connected with the new lens, we know that you will need to have the lens serviced or replaced.

Once you find out, repost your problem with more details, or consult with your local camera shop.

I bought a remote for my nikon D3000, how do you use it?

Set the camera's release mode to one of the two remote modes.

Quick-response remote snaps the picture as soon as you push the button. Delayed remote gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back.

It's an optical remote, so make sure you point it at the sensor on the front of the camera.

I have a new D3000 and a nikon SB-600 flash. I

From the Nikon site, do you have one of these flash units.
Support for the Nikon Creative Lighting System when using SB-900, SB-600, or SB-400 Speedlights, or the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander
If so You set the flash mode to "comander" the pop up flash must be UP

This Video by Nikon shows how but you will have to read the manual to get a full description go to the flash section

Then look at them all :)
