Remote shuts off after a minute or so.....

My sister requested I ask this question here :

"I recently bought a Pentax remote (O-RC1 if that matters). Works fine but shuts off after maybe one minute so I have to go back to the camera and press the shutter again. This is not helpful when trying to shoot hummingbirds, who are not respectful of my technical limitations and seem to come to the feeder as soon as my remote de-activates. The K1 manual does not discuss this."

Anyone have this issue and or a solution? Thanks

It's probably not the remote that is shutting off, it's the camera. Check "wrench" menu #2 and the "Auto Power Off" setting.

Good luck!
