This is in german. Look hard at the pictures. You only need to remove the bottom plate. Use a hypodermic needle loaded with just one drop of non-acidic oil. Practice first. Stick the battery back in an operate the shutter 30 times. leave the camera overnight upside down.

Canon mf8380cdw squeals when starting up


Squeals are often a lubrication issue. Can you tell where the squeal is. Front, back, side. sometimes it's hard to tell because sound bounces and could be from anywhere. Does it go away right after first print or after warm up cycle?. Delicate equipment does operate better in the proper environment. The manual will usually tell you what room temp machine will work better in.Try to get a better idea of where noise starts Depending on how long you have had it and the print count it may need to be checked out by tech..

My canon AE 1 shutter is not firing, the button will press down but when I pull back to advance the camera it just won't work.


That is normally a classic indication of a failed battery. Try a new 4SR44 battery.

If you are absolutely certain that it cannot be the battery, then your camera is most likely in need of a full professional CLA service (Clean, Lubricate, Adjust). The internal lubricant films dry out over about 30 years of use and gum up the mechanism.

A professional repair costs far more than the camera is worth, and most repairers won't attempt this on your non-functional model unless you agree to pay up front due to the possibility of carrying out work only to find a more serious fault (unusual on the AE1 as it's well built, but still possible). Although the repair may not make economic sense, if it works then you'll have a camera which should be good for many more years and which can still produce results which will put a digital SLR to shame, especially if you shoot on transparencies and then scan them. Plus there's all those nice, cheap/free, used FD lenses lying around...

Ae1 when i advance film the shutter releases abd takes a photo


You have bad mirror release magnet.
The magnet became weak and not holding the mirror so when you wind, the mirror goes up and takes pictures or releases the shutter by itself.

Canon Squeal


This is common on the A series Canon cameras. It's a flywheel governor on the side of the mirror box that needs to be lubricated. We do that for $48. Let us know if we can help.

Canon ae1 shutter button problem


Usually cleaning the contacts becomes an effective solution, but if the problem continues take the camera to the service. All shutter problems requires professional care.

Canon AE1 Shutter Problem


It could be a simple issue with the shutter magnets, or something more severe with the electronics. What does the meter needle do when you push the shutter release down? With the speed dial set at 1/125 or higher and no lens, the needle should move fairly high. If it pegs to the bottom right away, that is a bad sign.

You can check the magnets from the bottom with the cover removed. (2 screws) You can release the mechanicals of the shutter by pushing the silver lever arm (located next to the plastic shield around the magnet on the rewind side of the camera) toward the front of the camera. Be mindful of the spring attached

Meter on ae1 not working when aperture setting adjusted


On that camera the needle is not supposed to move when the f-stop ring is turned. It should stay on whatever number it is on and you should set the ring manually to whatever the needle points to.

That camera was really not made to be easy to use in the manual mode. I guess Canon thought everyone would just use it in Auto.

The Canon AE-1 has an electronic triped shutter and cocking system and requiires a battery to function. So yes the battery is required. Goog luck!
