I am having quite a difficult time trying to get the self-timer to work in my Nikon D200. Everything is set according to my Green Lantern Operating Manual, however when I push down on the release button, instead of activating the self-timer, it triggers the shutter and takes a photo. I have double checked my settings and no success yet. The manual advises to use Manual Mode and Manual Focus and I did, but still no luck. In the camera's settings the self-timer is on ten seconds, but again no luck. Yes, I do have the camera on a tripod. The auto focus assist light activates but the self-timer does not.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
