Defective mode function switch

Switch doesn't work most of the time when you change from video to still or picture mode. most of the time it stays on video mode. you have to play around with it to get it to function in still mode.

Why does my canon eos rebel t3 not take a picture when the shutter button is depressed but tje red eye reduction button keeps flashing and the video still works?

Usually, it means that the timer function has been turned on, and the camera is going through a countdown to trigger the shutter.

After that, it means that something else is not working correctly. If video works and records, then you know that the sensor and memory are functioning correctly. At that point, check to see whether your camera and lens are set for the form of autofocus or manual focus you want and that the aperture is still functioning correctly.

At some point, switch the camera to an all manual settings mode and try the shutter switch. If it still does not take a picture, the switch may have a problem.

Video won't work stays in still camera mode when video selected. It takes still pictures and I can't get the video mode to turn on properly

It seems that there is a problem with the rotary mode selector switch. Could be dirt or a faulty contact. Self repair is inadvised. Might be cheaper to replace the unit, and keep the C813 as a still only camera.

My liveview has a hard time focusing. Would there be a defect on my camera? I have own it only a week.

It would be nice to know what camera you have to give a more precise answer, however as a rule "Live View" will focus in the center of the LCD. There should be a display found in your menu that will give the target area shown in a red or white rectangular box. The focus on all these cameras is based on contrast so if you are moving the camera at all then the contrast is constantly changing and so is the focus. Also the focus "point" and sensitivity is different between video mode and still pictures. Going back to the contrast, if you are trying to have the camera focus on a lot of sky, water, windows, mirrors, chrome flatly painted walls it will struggle. Your question "would there be a defect on my camera" I would have to answer not likely, it's a matter of getting use to the camera and what it can and can not focus on. I conduct seminars on the use of the newer Still cameras with video and live view functions and 100% of the time it's user error. There is so many functions it takes a little while to learn how it all works.
