Set the camera to one of the remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the camera when you push the button on the remote, just as if you were pushing the shutter release button on the camera. The delayed response remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the camera.

The delayed response remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the camera. The remote mirror-up mode raises the mirror the first time you press the button, then fires the camera the second time to prevent camera shake.

Sorry, but the D3100 doesn't work with the ML-L3 infrared remote. It uses the MC-DC2 wired remote or equivalent.
With the MC-DC2, you don't need to set a remote mode. Simply plug the MC-DC2 into the D3100. You can then use the button on the remote the same way you normally use the shutter release button on the camera.

Turn the unit over. You'll see two arrows marked "1" and "2". Put a fingernail into the gap between the two ridges of "1" and move in the direction indicated by the arrow. While keeping it there, put another fingernail into the slot of "2" and pull in the direction of the arrow.

The procedure almost requires three hands. but it can be done with two if you put the remote down on a tabletop.

You need to set the release mode to one of the remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

See the "Release Mode" section of the manual (page 65 in my copy).

Setting a remote mode uses battery power since the camera has to keep looking to see if it's being remotely triggered. You can control how long the camera continues to look by changing custom setting #c4. You can set it from one minute to fifteen minutes.

How do you know it's not coming on? The LED (not a laser) puts out infrared, normally not visible to the human eye. If you have a point&shoot digital camera or a dSLR with LiveView, try taking a photo of it and see whether it lights up when you press the button. It'll probably show up white. You might try a TV remote for comparison.
Also, try cleaning both the LED window on the remote and the remote sensor on the camera. And make sure you're pointing the remote at the sensor.

Set the camera's release mode to one of the two remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.
To change the release mode, press the [i] button to bring up the information display screen. Press it again to put the cursor in the info display screen. Use the cursor keys to select the release mode --- it's the fifth item from the top along the right edge of the screen --- and press the [OK] button. Use the cursor keys to highlight the desired release mode and press [OK]. To return to shooting mode, press the shutter release button halfway.
Full details are in the "Release Mode" section of the manual (page 35 in my copy). If you need manual, you may download one here.

The ML-L3 does not work with the D200.
If you have a specific question about the D200's shutter release modes, please state it in a comment to this post.

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.
