5D MkIII Shoots once then dies

I turn on the camera, everything works, all the buttons, dials, focus, etc.  As soon as I take a shot, the camera shows the image in the screen, then everything shuts down - all the buttons, dials - focus still works, but I can't shoot.  I have to take the battery out and put it back in then I can take one more shot.

 

The problem started yesterday while using a Sunpak DigiFlash 3000 - I assume this is related to the camera problem.

 

The problem persists whether I am trying to use the flash or not.  All settings reset to default.  Flash disabled.  Still doesn't work.

Removed flash, reset camera, problem persists.  I too suspect the cheap flash.

Sounds like your issue could be related to the flash, especially if it goes away when you are not using it.

The problem doesn't go away when I don't sue the flash.  Flash or no flash, my camera is now a one-shot camera.
