Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera
Film loads normally. Advances the film ok. Just when you rewind the film it destroys the film to were it can not be processed. I talked to a company that deals with Canon cameras. All he would say is "Ohhh that is a bad thing. You need to send it in to Canon." When I asked why they since being a Canon dealer couldn't fix it he told me they only fix digital cameras. I know they used to fix film cameras. I asked what he thought was wrong and he replied with "Oh that is a really bad thing when the camera won't rewind the film and not tear it up." I felt like he was telling me this so he could make money off of it when it could be a cheap repair.
Thanks for your help in advance.
is the film being ripped along the sprocket holes? if so, the rewind button is not unlocking the drive sprocket. with film removed open the film door and push the rewind button in, the drive sprocket should turn freely. now charge the shutter with the advance lever. the rewind button should pop out and the drive sprocket should not turn freely.
if the sprocket did not turn freely with button pushed in, the camera needs repaired. there are no new parts for this model canon so any parts needed will be good used.
