Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera
Have recently purchased a used canon ae1 program. Being a novice I know little but wiling to learn. The problem is when the shutter release button is pressed there is nothing happening and winder lever not winding all the way and is kind of stiff. The camera looks in mint condition but not working. I have tested the battery and shows (i think) just baout enough power to give some sort of activity, ie bleeps etc, but nothing. Please any experts, any advice?
Make sure it's set on "A" not "L".
I got a AE-1 program 2 days ago, love it to death and just replaced the battery with a 28L lithium.
Everything works better and faster now.
Make sure your battery tester beeps 5-6 per second. before I replaced my battery, it beeped maybe 2 a second.

If not you need to take it to a repair shop nothing you can do ... KC
