After 12 years with the Z1p I plucked up courage and cash and got a K20D. It is like new with less than 800 clicks and came with The above named trigger. I have it working OK but would like detail about it since there was no instructions for the remote. Any one help? drop in any other tips that you fancy(Eh eh keep it clean)

Congratulations on your new camera, and welcome to the forum!

Using only a cable remote myself, I cannot help you with the remote. Have you tried to google Seculine? There is a lot to learn from the advertisements also.
Best regards

K20D, Optio I10, DA 18-55 1:3.5-5.6 AL II, A 1:1.7/50, D FA 1:2.8/100 Macro, Sigma 70-300 1:4-5.6 APO DG Macro, Pentax AF 360FGZ

It looks like its a IR remote.

Set the camera in remote drive mode (either instant, 2 second delay ot 12s delay) with the red light flashing and point and click the Seculine.

I acted on both comments The website did give some idea of distance etc but I find I have to set the focus to get the remote to trigger--

There is an menu option that controls AF in remote mode.

It might be worth resetting the camera menus and options to default in case previous owner had some odd options.

OK so when the problem seems unusual BLAME THE USER. I do know that, I have used that thought many times. The remote trigger button is not so sensitive as the camera trigger. IT has a longer travel to start and then needs a positive push to trigger. The Seculine trigger gets a plus foor its positive action and my fingers have been smacked. Grateful thanks to all who helped.
