Very easy to replace door. Remove base plate (3 screws). Remove 1 screw found in battery compartment. Lift corner of battery compartment (right where you took the screw out) up about 1/4". No more or you will break the opposite corner. Use a piece of picture hanging wire and push the hinge pin from the outside toward the inside until you can grab it with tweezers and pull it right out. Rest is simple.

The shutter wont work and the light meter doesn't move, also it wont advance the film. what could be wrong? I'm hoping it's the battery...


There is a large circular cover on the bottom of the camera. Inside is a button battery. Yours is dead and should be replaced with one of the same I.D.number.

Change batteries


For the condition of the battery, press the battery check button on the top cover. If the needle in the VF pegs down below 5.6, the battery is still good and above 5.6, time to change the battery. Looking at the front of the camera, batter door is on the left of the lens. Replace with px28 type battery. Make sure contacts are cleaned with pencil eraser. Good luck. -James.

Your second answer is the correct one. The seal at the edge of the film/back door needs to be replaced. The foam fails over time, a common problem

To open the back pull on the rewind knob ( pulling up ) until back opens. Check that your 6 volt battery is ok ( ae -1 has an electronic shutter so will not work without a battery ): battery situated on the left hand side of the camera ( if it is facing you ) underneath small flip up door ( lock is at the bottom on the left of the small door ) . Check the battery by pressing the shutter release gently and seeing if your light meter needle moves. No movement ? replace battery. You have two modes for taking pictures : auto which is actually AV ( aperture priority) or full manual : both are set by moving the shutter speed dial on the top right hand side ( underneath film winding lever ).
