Canon EOS Rebel T3

My canon eos rebel t3 is having issues. It won't focus very often and half of the picture it will take is blackish and blurry (it seems like something is in the way but there isnt) I don't know if it's my lense, or camera that's having issues, but I am really frustrated because I just bought it yesterday and it was the last one in stock. My dad said that something was wrong with the autofocus, but I can get it to focus sometimes now. Someone please help!

Re: Canon EOS Rebel T3

This is a brand new T3?

Acouple things to try.  Make sure the battery is fully charged.  Make sure you are in the green square.  Set the lens to AF, it's on the barrel of the lens.

Check to make sure you are using jpg's in the Menu on the back of the camera.  Do not use Live View right off.

Now go outside on a sunny day and shoot some pictures.   Are they OK?

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!
