RED Blinking Light On Canon EOS R5 On Start Up

Canon R5 Self-Timer Menu
My email is email@example.com
I just purchased a canon EOS r5. Before I take a picture my camera keeps blinking red in the lens about 10 times or so before taking a photo, therefore I have to wait before I can take a photo, can you tell me how to disable this? It didn't do this the first day I bought it.
Thanks for your question. Sorry that you're having an issue with your new Canon R5. If it's happening every time you take a photo it is likely that you have your R5 camera set to self-timer mode. If that's what's caing the red blinking light you just have to change the setting back to single photo (or burst mode) if you want to take a fast sequence of photos with your R5
Does this happen on start-up or when you press the shutter button? Please comment back so I fully understand what is happening.
