Thanks for getting back to us @toughoasis04448

 

You should be able to pair it with your camera.

Try to put the camera on pairing mode then with the remote powered OFF, press and hold the red Shutter button on the remote.
While continuing to hold the red button, press the white Power button once briefly. The remote will power on and show two arrows moving towards each other. 

After one minute or less, the camera and remote should pair.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Regards!
