Red self timer light flashing

Simply, I do not know what I have done. After taking few pics with a flash, the camera stopped. The red self timer flashes endlessly. The battery is newly charged.When I press the exposure button. nothing happens. When I switch off and on, the light does not flash, but I cannot press the shutter. The LCD shows only battery status. If I press the flash button, the flash pops-up and the red light starts to flash. any suggestions, please?

Was that the first time you have used the flash on that camera? Which brand and model is it ?

Perhaps a few more details: What camera model? Did you use an external flash? What kind?

And did the camera get wet in any way?

Thanks guys. The matter has resolved itself. All is fine again. I removed and re-inserted the card and all is OK
