Will not take pictures


ok so i have an EOS Rebel T5 , it stoped taking pictures mid shoot the other day.  

symptoms , when powed on  it opens flash and takes a picture, normaly 1 but have several times started taking multiple pictures as if the camera was in burst mode and would only stop when i press the shutter button. 

when trying to take a picture it will auto focus with half press , but with full press i only get flash or normal beep but no shutter action no picture and no error or busy message.  it does this in all modes including MF  and with all 3 lenz i own.

i have cleand every thing including the contacts on lez and body. i have also switched it into every configuration of AF , MF and other setings it has no effect. 



Try resetting the camera.  It may be in a multiple exposure or bracketing mode.

Make sure your battery is fully charged.  If you are using a battery grip, remove it temporarily. 


Have you ever low level formatted your memory card in the camera?  Every memory card needs to have it done before first use.
