Check the voltage of the backup battery(C1616) to make sure that it is in working order or else get it replaced . See if it helps.

Remove the battery and the little battery that keeps the time info etc, I am sure I read somewhere that this might help
I've done this many times. I can get the camera to reset (reseting time and date) but the issue still occurs.
OP, I think you know what to do next...it sounds like you're understandably hoping for a Silver Bullet...Remove the battery and the little battery that keeps the time info etc, I am sure I read somewhere that this might helpI've done this many times.

Book a trip to Canon Service or CPS if you're a member. Unless your camera has been exposed to some extreme environmental situation, it is likely to be a simple matter. But from here, you've run out of options.
I had this happen with a week old 5D3. It was a bent pin in the CF slot. Try taking out the CF card, then take the battery out. Put the battery back in with no CF card. If the camera seems to function, then it is probably a bad CF pin. Also could be a bad CF card. Bad SD cards create this behavior on my T3i. Key is to remove cards, then battery. If it isn't the card, then cam will have to go in. Good news is that Canon service isn't terrible.
I didn't find much. I took out both batteries and even did a software update. The only mode that buttons actually work in (Menu, play back etc.) is Full Auto.!
sounds to me like you sinned against the CR 10 commandments and are stuck on green square mode.

What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.
