Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.
Try removing the camera lens and VERY CAREFULLY raise the mirror in the camera. There is another small mirror behind the main mirror that relects the light for the autofocus to work. If the spring on that small mirror is broken (common problem) it can cause the symptom you are experiencing.
You can also check it by aiming the camera at an object above your head with the camera pointed up since that will hold the little mirror in place by gravity. If it works pointed up the spring is the problem.
You can get the spring from Canon. The part number is CS2-6367-000. Canon's parts dept phone number is 1-732-521-7230.

You can take the lens to any Ritz Camera location and they can help determine which mount it has, and which cameras it will fit.

a full charge and reinstall. If the issue persists, we suggest testing
the camera with a different EF series Canon lens. Should this persist
with a different lens, then the camera body itself will need to be
