Hello. My camera is fairly new. About a year. I never really used the wifi function until last couple of months. I really love it but I am having general camera problems. Not sure if it is just user error or camera problem. Was hoping to maybe find a class near the area canon offered to help me learn to really use my camera but haven't found on in the So Cal area. 


Most of the time when I take pictures on automatic the sensor light (orange) comes up. I turn it off then turn it on and it flashes a few times then the Orange light comes back on. Also I cannot always get to the menu even though I am pushing the menu button or even the play button. I have tried turning off/on, taking battery out, tried different settings and nothing works. I may try it again a week later and then I get to work for a time period and then the same problem happens like it's stuck or something. 

Many suggestions? Do you think I am just not working the camera right or is it the camera? Automatic- should be self sufficient. Please help or advise!

Re: EOS 70D

Taking the battery out isn't going to help, most likely.  The internal battery is keeping it alive and it takes months for it to run down.  Taking a photography class is a good thing but I think you have serious problems with your camera.

The best advice is to call Canon.
