i had recved this wireless controller today, and can't seem to get it working.... can anyone advise?

here is the sequence of switching...

1. set to Av mode.
2. inserted the cable of the controller to the input of the 5Dmkii
3. power on both the camera and the controller
4. switched the AF-Drive to the remote+ timer symbol
5. press the remote controller button... nothing happen...

But i noticed that the remote controller red light is responding to the press action of the trigger, thru the red LED lights. Can anyone advise?

i bought it from this guy

Try checking the pins on the connecting cables, receiver, and transmitter. I had a Yongnuo RF-602 that had suddenly stopped working (the red/green LEDs were activating), and it turned out a pin came loose on the receiver. I ended opening the case and hot-gluing the connector back into place, and so far I haven't had any other problems since.

looks good on the internal wiring. no breakage or loose wire, and this is a brand new remote.

I had exactly the same problem. The plug does not go far enough into the camera to close the contacts. I filled a bit of the end of the plug (its plastic) using sandpaper cleaned the holes with aneedle and BINGO it works
