Shutter issues with EOS Rebel T3 -doesn't stick-just does not take the picture!!

New Contributor


I've watched videos on taking camera apart/dumping alcohol into battery compartment, etc...the clarity is not there if I switch from view finder to screen. WHY?!  The shutter button WILL NOT take a picture no matter what setting, focuses/presses, but, nothing!  I have used this camera for nearly a year now...I post to FB & personal photo site! I need advice!

Put the lens into MF mode and try taking  a photo.  Let us know if that works.


That wont "fix" the issue, but it will give us a clue as to what might be happening because in "One Shot" mode, the camera will refuse to take a shot unless it believes it was able to lock focus.
