My Rebel T3 won't take pictures. A yellow light flashes on front, but nothing else happens. I've tried replacing the battery, changing the mode, but it still won't take any pictures. It was working just fine yesterday.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I haven't read the manual (hint), but a wild stab in the dark would be that a light that flashes on the front of the camera has somethng to do with the lens. Have you checked to make sure that it's firmly seated in its mount?

I actually did try that. And this is going to sound like I'm totally stupid, but I figured out my problem.
Somehow I must have bumped the timer setting. I've never used the timer before, so I didn't realize it made the yellow light flash. And I wasn't just sitting there waiting to see if it would take a picture.
So anyway.... problem solved. I feel dumb, but putting the solution here just in case anyone else has the same problem! lol

Thank you so much for your answer. I did use the timer on my camera during the Thanksgiving weekend when we took a family picture and there was no one around to hold the camera. The picture came out great, but I forgot to turn off the timer. This weekend I couldn't use my camera at our family Christmas party. Found your answer and my problem was fixed in 10 seconds.

I did the same now how do you disable the timer
The Instruction Manual illuminates such puzzles. Or you can just reset the camera to factory settings.
