nikon ml-l3 remote won't work on my d40
Jul 17, 2008

I am new to my D40 and even newer to my ML-L3 remote. I removed the little tab to activate the battery and when I look at the sending unit on the remote, I do see a blinking red glow. I went into the settings and changed the shooting mode...tried 2 sec delay and normal remote and the shutter never releases. I am in front of the camera with a clear look at the receiver below the shutter release and I have the remote transmitter pointed at the camera.

Am I doing something wrong??

Thanks,

Joe
