You need to set the camera's release mode to a remote mode. Since you didn't mention what camera you have, you'll have to refer to the camera's instruction manual for the exact procedure. Or else you can reply to this post, specifying the model, and we can try to direct you further.

What is best setting on NikonD-3000 to have remote work?

That depends on what you want to do. The camera has two remote modes, the quick-response and the delayed. The quick-response mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. This is useful if you mount the camera on a tripod and want to shoot without touching the camera. The delayed mode waits two seconds before firing the camera. This is useful for group portraits, giving you the time to hide the remote behind your back before the picture is taken.

As for the exposure and other settings, again, that depends on what you want to do. In general, you can use the same settings you would use if you weren't using the remote.

Hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.

How do you take a 15 or 30 minute exposure with the Nikon D5000 and how do you set the remote up to snap the picture in this kind of mode?

For really long exposures (longer than 30 seconds) you need to set the camera to the Manual exposure mode and set the shutter speed to bulb. This keeps the shutter open as long as you hold down the shutter release button. Since this is inconvenient, a much easier way is with the remote.

Press the [info] button to bring up the shooting information display. Press the [i] button to put the cursor into the display. Use the cursor keys to move to the release mode (fifth item from the top along the right edge) and press the OK button. The Quick-response remote mode (marked with an icon of the remote control) fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. the Delayed remote mode (marked with the remote and "2s") gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back when taking self-portraits.

In either of the remote modes, when the shutter speed is set to bulb the shutter opens when you press the button on the remote and stays open until you press the button again (or the camera battery dies). This way you can press the button, go and do something else for a while, then come back and press the button again.

Information on the release modes is in the "Release Mode" section of the manual (page 65 in my copy). Information on using the remote control is in the "Self-Timer and Remote Modes" section of the manual (page 67 in my copy).

New remote not working

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.

I have purchased the ML-L3 remote for my Nikon D5000. I can figure how to get it to work? Any help?

Refer to your camera's user manual and hopefully you have a section in that manual that talks about "Release Mode". I have a D90 so I am can only guide you to my research. Hopefully your camera has a release mode section that shows you how to change mode from "single frame" to "continious low speed" to continuous high speed", self timer...and the two that you need will be "delayed remote" and "quick response". All the best.

How do I use the ML-L3??

You need to refer to your User's Manual. I have a D90 and referred to the Release Mode section/instructions. This enables you to select from modes such as "single frame", "continuous low speed", "self timer" and the two that you need for the Nikon ML-L3 remove controller - "delayed remote" and "quick response". Page 64 of the User's Manual or refer to Index of the Manual for the "Release Mode" section. All the best.

Using the ML-L3 with the D60

Got it! It's on page 54 of the manual (mine anyway).

Choose release mode from the Quick settings display.

You have a choice between:
single frame (default)
continuous (burst mode)
delayed remote (using the ML-L3)
quick response remote (using the ML-L3)

I just took 4 self-portraits using quick response. And deleted them straightaway!
