Just wanna start off by saying thanks for sticking with me ScottyP. Funny thing is I've learned more about this camera just from this whole troubleshooting process. So I really appreciate that assistance. But yeah, when I say i'm manually focusing I switched that little switch from AF to MF so I can turn the little slender knob at the very end of the lense. It took me a little bit but I found the 'reset settings' option. It's in Setup Menu 3, which apparently can only be accessed from one of the advanced exposure modes. So I reset the settings, and theres an option under that for 'reset custom settings' I reset that as well. Unfortunately taking a photo in the green box mode or the P mode produced that same results. Although I didn't try the M, AV ot AV modes.

Just an update. A friend of mine that works at the apple store (not that that has anything really to do with this, just saying that to give a little context) is a photography enthusiast. After telling him my situation he asked me a couple of questions about the battery pull. After I told him, he suggested that when I pull the battery to leave it out of the camera for 15 minutes. After that, then put it back in and try to take a photo. I'm not home now, but I'll definitely give that a try and keep you guys posted. I hope this works though. I'm really stumped on this one.

An update, the 15 minute battery pull did not work. pretty lame. But that same individual suggested maybe trying to use the EOS utility and try the 'remote shooting' option, to see if the camera will write to the computer. I'll have to try this when I get home.

I have a Canon EOS T3 (1100D). Here's how I FIXED THE PROBLEM!
I know this is late in the game (2 years?) but here's a fix for anyone looking. I had the same problem and it turned out to be the memory card I was using.
Somewhere online I read that you need a "Class 10 or better" SDHC card. And on here someone said you have to use an "SDXC I" card, not SDHC. Well I was using a "SanDisk Extreme, 64GB, Class 10, 90mb/s, SDXC I" and I still had that problem.
SKIP TO THE FIX:
I tried using a regular old SDHC card and my T3 is working perfectly in all modes now!
Cards I've tried that work for me:
SanDisk Ultra, 32gb, 15mb/s, Class 4, SDHC
Panasonic, 4gb, Class 4, SDHC
Kingston, 2gb, SD
