    One of the best places to learn a camera I have found is You Tube. I would start in AV though and fo ffrom there.

    Usually when a DSLR won't take a picture it's because it's on autofocus and the camera can't find focus. Mostly happens in the dark.

    Try using a tripod with manual focus set to infinity and 30+ seconds of exposure.
    The two loudest sounds known to man: a gun that goes bang when it is supposed to go click and a gun that goes click when it is supposed to go bang.
