Troubleshooting
If wireless remote controllers fail to function as expected, check the
list of common problems below before consulting your retailer or
Nikon representative.
The unit does not turn on (no indicators appear in the display):
• If the unit is not connected to a camera, confirm that the batteries are
inserted in the correct orientation (0 4). If the problem persists, replace
the batteries with fresh batteries or with fully charged rechargeable batteries.
• If the unit is connected to a camera, confirm that the cable is correctly
connected and that the camera is on (0 6).
The camera does not respond to the transmitter shutter-release button:
• Confirm that the receiver is on the same channel and in the same group
as the transmitter (0 8, 10).
• If PAIRING is selected for LINK MODE, select PAIRING > LIST and confirm
that the transmitter is listed, indicating that the transmitter and receiver
are paired. If the transmitter is not listed, pair the devices as described
on page 9.
• If ID (supported with WR-1 units only) is selected for LINK MODE, confirm that all units have the same name (0 23).
• Confirm that the receiver is connected to the camera (0 6).
• The shutter can not be released. Check the camera.
The unit beeps twice and the camera shutter is not released:
• The shutter can not be released. Check the camera.
• Check that the receivers do not share the same body number.
NOT DETECTED: No paired or linked units in the selected group can be detected on the selected channel.
NO RESPONSE: Reattempt pairing after placing the units closer together and
confirming that they are on the same channel (0 8, 9).
#00 IS DUPLICATED: The current unit ID (body number) is shared by other
receivers with the same name. Select a unique unit ID (0 23).
26
D Precautions for Use
• Controllers must be securely attached to the camera to prevent
camera malfunction. Remove units that are not in use; carrying a
camera in a bag or by the strap with a WR-1 attached risks damage
to the camera or the WR-1 in the event that the camera is exposed
to strong physical shocks or vibration.
• Transmitter and camera shutter-release buttons can not be used
when cameras other than the D7100 are in remote control (ML-L3)
release mode.
A Compatibility
Wireless remote controllers can not be used with D1-series cameras or
the MB-D100. They can be used with the F100, D2X, D2Xs, D2Hs, and
D200, but the shutter can not be released with the F100 in self-timer
mode, while the D2X, D2Xs, D2Hs, and D200 will temporarily display
O if the exposure meters are activated after the unit is attached.
