Rebel T6 screen is black , view finder says busy .

I have a Rebel T6 and for some reason the screen doesn't turn on, when I turn it on only a small red light flashes once and when I look into the viewfinder it shows me the iso which is 3200 and it flashes the word BUSY. I can use auto focus and press the button for the pop up flash to pop up but thats it. I cannot take pictures AND the screen is black .
I used mine the day before no issues, placed it back in my cam bag .
Next day , nothing on then screen.
It will flash several times when I press the button but the reads busy.
Help !

The camera can flash “BUSY” for a couple of different reasons.  One is writing to the card, or a bad card.  Another reason is that the flash is recharging.  If ISO is 3200, then it sounds like you are not in a brightly lit location.

 

Make sure your battery is fully charged.  Remove the memory card.  Now turn the camera on.  If the camera turns on, with to P on the shooting mode dial, and go into the the menus and do a “Reset To Factory Defaults”.  

Try a new memory card.  You should always have a spare on hand.  If you are using a a micro-SD card with an adapter, stop using them.  Only use full size memory cards from a major brand like Sandisk.  I recommend Sandisk 32 GB Extreme in that camera.  Be sure to always format any new memory card in the camera, too.  Memory cards do not come preformatted.

I solved the issue by clearing out the sd card..my entire camera should not shut down and become unstable because of a full memory card but it did ..
