Why is my camera freezing after 3 shoots

Do you just have to wait and it "unfreeze", or do you have to switch it of and on?
When it starts working after a few seconds, perhaps you have a slow memory card, and in 3 shots your buffer has filled up complete. Then it freezes to save the pictures you took. And as soon as the buffer is empty it is ready to shoot again.
But if it stays out till you switch of an on again, I would think something is defect in the camera.

Powershot A2300 stays busy will not take pictures

Did you try to switch off the camera and then removed the battery?
Make sure nothing is attached to the camera, like a PC, printer or power supply with a USB cable.
First reaction, when the camera is acting strange, is to remove the battery. But never remove a battery when the camera is accessing the memory card, because it could destroy all the pictures on that card. The manual nothing says about a camera that is staying busy, so I wonder what can be going on. Please inform me if you know more.

Hi Busy light stays on all the time.

though you need to give in the model of the camera still a quick try coul be that the busy light may go off if you restart the camera. If that does not work, Try to remove the battery and the memory card and do the same process again.

After charging on my computer the blue busy light stays on and it wont turn on when i press the power on button.

Easiest solution is to remove the battery and then return the battery back to the battery compartment. Switch on and it will work. Give a feedback if helpful.

Olympus 7010 shuts down in picture mode - not a battery problem

I will tell you how I did it for the same price you were going to charge me for a solution. To ask how I did it once I found a solution without a fee goes against your business model.

Why does the camera Ready light glow steady red?

The cause and solution may include one of the following: The camera internal memory or card is full. Transfer pictures to the computer, delete pictures from the camera, switch storage locations, or insert a memory card with available memory. The camera processing memory is full. Wait, and resume picture taking when the light turns green. The card is read-only. Change the storage location to internal memory or use a different card.
