    I was using my canon RC-1 to shoot remotely and it quit working.

    I've changed the batteries, the camera is set in the remote / self timer setting. I'd prefer to not have to get a new remote but I don't know if I even need too. Is there a setting that I am missing? Is there a way I can tell if the remote is dead or sending a signal?

    Check the obvious steps.
    1. Is it on?
    2. Did you put the batteries in the right way?
    3. Does the remote have aline og sight with the reciever on the camera?

    And don't forget to check your cameras battery for enough power to process the signals..........:thumbup:

    Yes everything is as it should be. New batteries in both the camera and remote. I've tried it in both the dot and 2 positions. and it's only from a distance of 4 feet.

    is that too close?
