K2000 Remote Control not Firing

Hi, on advice from Hahnel at the FOI show I purchased the Combi TF Remote Control for my Pentax K2000 and Flash Uniits.(Canon Fit - also says on the packet its for the K2000)

In my mini studio ( otherwise known as the spare bedroom) I've set up two flash units, both with receivers which work fine when I have the Transmitter on the Camera itself.

However, despite working through the 'Remote Control Operation' in the Pentax Manual I cannot get the Camera to fire, so I'm not able to mount the camera on a Tripod to avoid any shaking. As even pressing the shutter button can cause a distortion.

So can anybody explain what I need to do please, in the simplest of terms?
