Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera
The shutter will not work and film will not advance. I have replaced batteries.
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
