I second, then blinks or does not light at all. Transmitter Move main switch from OFF (0) position to ON; Battery OK :Ready lamp lights within 1 or 2 seconds. Battery power Low :Ready lamp lights irregularly, blinks or does not light at all.
4. Set channels Set both the transmitter and receiver to the same channel (A, B, or C). Note i) When using one transmitter to operate two or three cameras in sequence, set the first camera to channel A, the second to channel B, and the third to channel C. Then change the transmitter channel switch to operate the desired cameras. ii) When operating multiple cameras at the same time, set the transmitter channel switch to ALL, and shoot (the receivers will operate on any channel setting). iii) when using two or more wireless controller sets at the same location, be sure that each set is operating on a different channel.
5. Mount-the receiver (a) Attach the receiver mount to the camera accessory shoe so that the white surface on the receiver is
toward the back of the camera, then tighten the mounting screw. (b) Align the red indicator mark on the three-pin connecting cord plug with the indicator on the camera remote control socket, and connect. (c) Set direction: Rotate the receiver (range 360*) so that the receiving window is pointed towards the transmitter.

Attach the master strobe unit to the camera hot shoe. connect the receiver and the supplementary strobe unit using a commercially available synchro cord, and turn the receiver main switch to ON (1). When using a strobe unit without a PC terminal, use an off-camera shoe with a commercially available PC terminal.
(a) To shoot: Press the camera shutter button directly. * Use any channel setting. (b). Without mounting a Strobe Unit on the Camera (c Connect the camera and the transmitter using a commercially available synchro cord.* when using a camera without a PC terminal, use a hot shoe with a commercially available PC terminal. Connect the receiver to the strobe using a commercially available synchro cord. When using a strobe unit without a PC terminal, use an off-camera shoe with a commercially available PC terminal. (d) Turn the transmitter and receiver main switches to ON (e) Set the channel switches to B, C, or ALL.(f) To shoot: Press the camera shutter button directly.
Caution: -When using a wireless supplementary flash, you cannot activate the shutter by pressing the transmitter button. -> Press the camera shutter button directly. When using a wireless supplementary flash, TTL (through the lens) light adjustment is not possible -> Use the strobe in M (manual) mode.
Verifying Shutter Release
1. By Camera Shutter Sound At relatively close range, camera release can be verified by the sound of the Shutter.
2. By Strobe Flash (a) Attach the receiver to the camera accessory shoe, and connect the 3-pin connecting cord., mount the strobe unit on the accessory bracket. * When using a strobe unit without a PC terminal, use an off-camera shoe with a commercially available PC terminal. *When the strobe is attached directly to the camera, select the shutter speed carefully. The shutter speed will be affected by the synchronization of the strobe with the camera.
Using Remote Control Switch 60T3 Attaching the Remote Switch 6OT3 is via plugging the connector of the 60T3 to the side of the transmitter. 1. Setup. (a) connect the remote control switch 60T3 to the transmitter remote control socket.; (b) mount the transmitter on a tripod. 2. Shoot. Press the switch on the 60T3., You can use the transmitter button with the 60T3 attached. To control from even greater distances from the transmitter, use an extension cord 100OT3 (cord length 10m).
1. Receiver using 3-pin connecting cord: a- Setup i) After attaching transmitters and receivers to tripods or other fixtures using accessory brackets, attach the 3-pin connecting cord
on each receiver to the next transmitter unit. ii) Attach the last receiver to the camera using the 3-pin connecting cord.
2. Channel selection Set all transmitters and receivers to the same channel.
3- mode selection * Single shot : : Set all transmitters to single-shot mode (). * Continuous action sequence Set all transmitters to continuous action mode * Delay mode Set the first transmitter to delay mode, and all other transmitters to single-shot mode. Note: - Do not set intermediate transmitters to delay mode (this will add 3.5 seconds to the delay time for each transmitter). If intermediate transmitters are set to continuous action sequence mode multiple frames will be taken.

Number Description Remarks 1. Transmitter and receiver must be directly aligned with each other. Especially over long distances, the receiving window of the receiver must directly face transmitter. The effective transmission distance is reduced in direct proportion to the angle between the transmitter and receiver. 2. Place the receiver so that sunlight cannot enter the receiving window directly. Direct sunlight can cause abnormal operation. 3. Avoid use in areas where people, cars,etc. can pass through the transmission path. Obstacles can hinder signal transmission. 4. When using the LC-3 indoors, avoid using remote controls of other electronic equipment. Remote control systems can interfere with each other. 5. Set camera film advance to continuous feed (Examples: C, CL, CH) . If the camera is set to single-shot mode, it will not take continuous shots even when the first transmitter is set to continuous-action .mode. 7. Set camera focus mode to M (manual) or Al servo AF (or AF). in single-shot AF mode, a full press of the transmitter button can fail to focus the camera, so the shutter will not release. 8. Do not use FR6 (lithium) batteries. Lithium batteries can damage electrical circuits and may release heat. 9. For remote-control photography with AE, cover the viewfinder eyepiece with an eyepiece shutter or eyepiece cap. Light entering through the viewfinder can cause incorrect exposure. 10. When using 1SR mode with an AF camera, set the camera focus mode-to M (manual). This is because only the SW-2 signal is transmitted. 11 When talking only single shots, always set the transmitter to single-shot mode In continuous -action mode; the camera my shoot several frames even from a quick press.
