My Canon EOS Rebel T3 can turn on but if it gets turned off at any point after it will NOT turn back on unless left alone for hours. I do not think its the battery because it is fully charged. I am unsure if it is the SD card reader, I know it is not the SD card because it works in my computer. My father-in-law suggests it may need an updated firmware. I was going to try that but I do not see where I can do that, if at all possible. I have never dropped it, nor has it ever gotten wet. I am deeply crushed that it is having issues. If anyone has any idea or suggestions of what could be wrong I would greatly appreciate it. I bought it second hand so besides the year that I have owned it, I am unsure of how it was treated previously. I have photo shoots lined up, I need to fix this quick before it becomes worse. When I connect it to my computer via a cable it does not register (the computer can not find the camera). She did not give me a CD to it. The camera just came with the body, the 18-55 len, the 55-250mm lens, a carrying case, a tripod, and a cleaning kit. Sorry this text is so sporadic, I am writing as I examing the camera. I brought it home later and now it wont turn on at all.
