Question about Canon EOS Elan 7n 35mm SLR Camera
New batteries installed, when taking a photo, the mirror locks in the up position as though it is a very low light situation. Mirror can not be corrected until the batteries are removed and put back in.
I just fixed my 7n with the same problem. I think it has to do with getting the "brain" to reset. Here is what I did--With new batteries and film removed, set the lens on MF and turn the focus to a really bad setting. Now press the shutter button FIRMLY and rapidly several times. At first the mirror will change position with each press. After several times it will "magically" begin to operate correctly (including the shutter). Problem solved without ever having to dismantle anything. Also, wife is VERY impressed since the local shop guy tried and said we would have to send it off for repair!
