Reset it.  Menu, Tools, clear all settings.  Try again outside on a nice day in P mode.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, along with, a lot of other stuff.

Usually, you can't take a shot because the camera thinks it has problems achieving focus (low light, lack of contrast, etc).


Find a well lighted object with good contrast and focus on it and see if you can take a picture.
