Customer Question
Hi Pearl, I'm just...

Hi Pearl, I'm just working through a posting from someone else who's Canon T3i stopped working and started just beeping. I've tried all the fixes suggested but it just beeps when I push any button. No image on the screen and my computer doesn't recognise it when I connect with USB. Any suggestions?

Technician's Assistant: Are you experiencing the same issue in different shooting modes, or just one?

All shooting modes and when I move the mode switch it just beeps, doesn't change anything.

Technician's Assistant: Has there been any damage to your camera recently (e.g. from dropping it or getting it wet)?

No damage. I put it away in it's bag one day and it wasn't working the next.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Nothing I can think of.

Hi Harry, I've tried everything I can find or think of to get the camera working with no luck. I've just listed it for sale "For Parts or Repair" but if you think you can help get it working I'd appreciate some advice. Andy

Unfortunately, it would make more financial sense to sell it as parts/repair than to try and fix it.
