EOS Rebel T5 Red light won't turn off/camera won't work

I have a Rebel T5/ 700D and was trying to shoot some photos earlier and the camera just stopped working entirely. I took a pic and the shutter didn't open back up, I've not been using a flash and have reformatted the SD card but it still has not fixed it. Any suggestions?

Greeting,

Time for a battery pull.

And after that, is it a full size card or a micro card with adapter?

Shadowsports: I changed the battery and it managed to take a couple photos but then did the same thing...
Kvbarkley: it's a normal full size as card

Greetigs,

 

Full Size card - good

Formatted in the camera - good

 

Battery pull - worked temporarily

 

Whats next...  A reset, Camera settings and Custom settings to defaults.  Result? 

 

In addition, does the camera turn on and show ready with the lens removed, or do you have another lens to test with?

 

Are their any issues with the flash that might keep the body from being ready?

And another card.

Good idea.  Try powering up without any memory card, too.  Removing the lens to clear the camera is a good idea, too.  The camera does have a menu selection that resets the camera, but that menu is not visible until switch out of Basic modes, and use a Creative mode.

Whilst surching through the menu, the screen went weird with a thin grid pattern covering the whole screen which didn't go away until another battery pull...

I then wiped the settings and tried again with another lense and with no lense, the camera shows ready however once I take a pic the shutter opens and doesn't close again while the red light remains on.

I have never had any issues with the flash but also have only used the flash a hand full of times.

Kvbarkley:
I do not have a brand new card right now so will have to go out and buy one.

Waddizzle:
I only ever shoot in full manual mode, will that make a difference?

Did you try to power it up without either a memory card or a lens?
