    Any tricks to getting a timer remote to fire, I aphave it set to M mode & B for bulb but the remote ont fire the shutter, when it's plugged in though a green dot on the display blinks for the length of exposure I set & if I press the manual release on the timer a red camera flashes on the display but no pic is taken
    What am I missing?

    It's hard to say, I'm using the Panasonic remote with good success. I know my friend has had some issues with his and focusing (getting the same red camera icon). So he had to go to MF. Have you tried it other modes, not in bulb mode?
