Card full?
Card door fully closed?
No card in camera?
Take out battery and wait 30 seconds, replace and try again
Sure it is in focus? Green hex lights up in the viewfinder?
Try a different lens.
Try a different memory card.

The card is empty, all were deleted and then even formatted ( both cards)
Door is closed, tried two lenses and all
When you look through the view finder, the lens will automatically focus, if you are using the flash, it will flash. It just wont capture, while holding the button down, it is making a sound though.
