7Dayshop Wireless Remote query

    I have a (very cheap) wireless remote control from 7Dayshop but regardless of the settings on my K10D - via the Func button and menu options, and reading the manual several times - I cannot get it to work. The battery is fine BTW and the K10D waits patiently for a signal.

    I assumed that the remote control might be faulty, so 7Dayshop have kindly sent a replacement. However, this too doesn't fire the shutter. I assume that I have missed a vital configuration, but I cannot see how: the K10D doesn't have many relevant menu options.

    I wonder if anyone has any suggestions please?

    It seems to be very hit and miss as to whether these remotes work. I've tried three of them on a K200D with no luck, although I have a friend who says they work with his camera. He's not local to me so we haven't had a chance to test his remote with my camera. Luckily 7day will always refund your money if it doesn't work.

    You can always check if the remote is transmitting a signal by pointing it at a digital camera with a live view - a mobile phone camera is ideal. The infra-red signal should be visible on the camera's screen.

    Thanks. I forgot about the live view test. The remote both appear to transmit. I have a wired Neewer remote/timer that is fine so I'll send the wireless ones back unless a solution emerges over the weekend. Hardly worth it for £1.49, but it is (almost) the price of a bag of chips.
