Hi byiringiro,

Thanks for your reply.

Let me suggest that you take out the battery from the camera and clean the contact points in the camera casing, as well as on the battery itself, with a lens cloth. After leaving the battery and memory card out for about five minutes, put them both back into the camera. It might even be a good idea to ensure that the battery is fully charged before placing it back into the camera's battery compartment.

If any button appears stuck or out of place, then you may wish to gently tap it back into position. Now, make sure that the battery door is completely shut before turning the camera back on.

Another possibility is to try a different battery to see if that helps. You might try a battery from one of the display models at your local camera dealer, just in case the battery itself is having problems.



Do as Nick2020 recommends.  Remove all accessories, lens, memory card, etc.  Insert a freshly charged battery.

If the behavior persists, its time for a new camera.  The T3 is 13 yrs old.  Replacement cost used is about $113.  Far less that it would cost to repair, if you could find someone to do so.  I'd start budgeting for a new body.

This is the likely outcome. All you can do is try a different battery maybe even a new Canon brand battery and make sure the charger is fully working and charging. Either remove the SD or get a new top brand SD. These simple things are about all you can do personally. And as mentioned above repair is possible is not a cost effective solution.

I doubt cleaning the contacts will make any difference but since it's free and easy go ahead and do it. It is probably a good idea to leave the battery out for a time but I would leave it out for way more than 5 minutes say an hour or two.
