Question about Canon AV1 35mm SLR CAMERA SPARES OR REPAIR 35mm Film Camera
In most film cameras, a battery is not necessary to manual advance film
using the lever. Your Canon AV-1 is no exception. I have owned two
cameras from the same group, the AE-1 and the Canon A-1. Neither
required a battery for manual film advance.
Make sure the ring around the shutter release button is set to "A", otherwise the shutter won't release and the film lever won't work correctly. If the ring shows an "L", the shutter release is locked.
Here's a graphic of the batteries that can be used in your AV-1:
