How to pair my Pentax O-RC1 remote to my K-3.

Can anyone please assist me with this? I followed the instructions and I'm still having problems. Any and all help will be deeply appreciated.

There is no pairing necessary. The O-RC1 should work out of the box as long as you set your K-3 to remote control (via the drive button). That said, I asked the same question a few weeks ago. There seem to be quite a few lemons among the O-RC1s delivered to customers. So maybe you got one of those. You should check your O-RC1 with the right drive mode on the K-3, then on another Pentax cam if available. If it doesn't work the only option is to return it.

I went thru three O-RC1 remotes thinking it was my camera or somthing I was doing wrong, until I figured out the remotes were bad. I think there must be some old inventory out there with dead or dieing batteries.
