EOS M3 not taking pictures

I just bought an EOS M3 and installed everything, but there is no beep before I take a picture and there is an orange icon flashing when I hold down the button. I'm guessing that icon is the issue, but I don't know what it means.

Help a newb out! Thanks in advance.

What does the icon look like?

 

Are you inside or outside?

It is anot orange flashing camera icon with movement indicators to the side. Might it be because of the third party lens I'm using? I've managed to make it work with a Canon lens (kit-lens), but with the other one it doesn't.

Sounds like it's the camera shake warning
