I have big issue on my Nikon D3200: If I use an IR remote control, the AF-Assist Light always flashes, after taking a photo, although I explicitly disabled it in the menu!

How can I disable it completely?

    If the light is causing a problem you could get a small piece of thick black tape like plumbers' tape and tape over – laurencemadill Apr 24 '14 at 11:24
  • The information is on page 25 in the book you get and on page 33 of the downloadable pdf – user37114 Jan 17 '15 at 14:39

According to page 33 of the D3200 Reference Manual, the light you see is functioning as the self-timer lamp, not as the AF-assist illuminator. The manual includes no instructions as to how this feature might be disabled.

One possible workaround might be to use an MC-DC2 Remote Release Cord (1 Meter) wired cable release instead of the wireless remote.

  • Thanks for the answers. (Sorry, you're correct - it isn't the AF Light, but anyway it's should to be disable by the menu/firmware) – user27694 Apr 28 '14 at 14:54

    Just put a bit of tape over it – ElendilTheTall Jun 27 '14 at 20:35
