I have acquired a Canon AE-1 and an AE-1 Program SLR cameras and both of the film-advanced levers will not advance the film. Both of the levers only crank back about a 1/3rd of the way. I would like to...


This is a very common fault now on almost all AE1's and related models like the AV1.

Most of the time, it's due simply to age and dried out lubricants. The cameras need a strip down, thorough clean, and reassembly using fresh lubricants (known as a CLA service). It's wise during this process to remove and replace all light seals and mirror buffers as they'll have turned into a corrosive sticky black goo by now. The job is for professionals only due to the need for special tools and skills and the need to readjust the shutter speeds upon reassembly. Although it's not cheap (£80-£100 parts in the UK, cheaper in the USA and much cheaper in some Far Eastern countries such as Malaysia. If broken parts need replacing there is an extra charge), it's far cheaper than any new camera of the same quality and will ensure that the camera gives many more years of service. A freshly CLA'd camera has a resale value, a broken AE1 is usually completely worthless.

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.

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.

AE-1 self timmer


The battery is not the problem. It is more likely the the internal switch has failed, (always stuck on self timer). The switch is a ring around the release button for the shutter. The small black tab covers the red LED in normal release mode, the self timer is on when the tab is facing forward.

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.
