...and it (external link) does not work:(

I have put in the battery in the transmitter (the one you hang onto the camera) and when I power on my camera i hear a high sound coming out of it but when I select the shutter method remote shutter and I want to take a picture, nothing happens:(.

I used the dip switches to set a channel and powered on my camera, used several frequencies but nothing helps.

Please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

Um . . . I believe the "remote shutter" setting in the self-timer/drive mode options is only for the IR remotes. You'd use any of the other settings for the wired remote you have.

Hmm your right about that but the MQ-WC3 from Micnova is wireless through radio signals.

Still, you don't use the "remote shutter" setting. Try it.

Tried it but gives no response. The two LED's on the receiver arnt doing anything. Checked the battery but thats in, and i also hear a high "startup" sound when i turn on my camera with the receiver in it.

First post you described the part hanging on the camera as the "transmitter"; are you talking about the receiver as the piece you hold or the one in the camera? Checked that you've got the battery in the right way? Does the receiver (part connected to the camera) have a release switch on it as well?

The battery's are correct, the receiver got a button but that does not do anything as far as i know.
I switched the dip switches on both ends so they are the same but that does not work.

The Manual is not to great either, just a single A4 paper with not to much information.

If the button on the receiver doesn't do anything, including blink the LEDs on the receiver, I suspect you may have a bad receiver. That might also explain a "whine" when you plug it in to the camera.

That would be a bummer...

I will write an email to Pro Camera Gear asking what the next steps would be, thank you for your help the past day really appreciated it.


Edit: Problem is solved after getting an email from ProCameraGear.
Apparently there was a translucent plastic wrapper around the batter and had to remove that.
