Default nikon d3000 help with self timer

Hello Everyone
Newbie here.. I need help with my self timer. I have looked at the manual and I've changed setting multiple time.

How do I keep the self timer from turning off after every picture? I will set it for 5 sec... take the pic.. and it returns to single picture. The manual says nothing about it except that after 5 minutes of non use it will shut off... but that isn't the case.

The self timer only takes one picture. The self timer setting you are adjusting only determines how long the camera waits before firing after the shutter is pushed. If I'm understanding you, you want the camera to be able to take consecutive pictures over a period of time. This is interval shooting and is not available on the D3k. The D5k does have this feature. You may want to look into getting the infra red remote. This would allow you to fire the camera manually for multiple shots.
