Hi Linda,

Please hold down these two buttons for 3-5 seconds --

QUAL and +/- button together for 3-5 seconds and it will reset the settings on the camera. After resetting the settings, try using the camera again.

Ok I did all of that and then reassigned my back button focus but it is still trying to focus using the shutter button also. And the beep is still not working either.

Menu a2: AF-S focus priority set to "Release" Should be set to "Focus" for beep

It is. and still no beep. I have checked the menu also for the beep to make sure it was not shut off or turned down accidently
