A Canon Rebel camera is an elaborate instrument, and it may take some time to get used to the elaborations of it.

Some modes do not support a given function - this is quite common on a fully professional camera like this one.

What function were you trying to invoke to activate?

If the camera has never worked properly, you might want to try factory resetting it. Then if after that it still does not work, pack it up and return it as defective to the seller or store you bought it from, for an exchange for another one in full working order.

- If this answers your question, please rate my answer using the five-star interface at the top of the JustAnswer question page .... A five-star rating would be appreciated! Thank you.
