Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera
Camera hasn't been used for many years - put in new battery - on Prgram, the shutter hangs up or something, but finally "clicks" - but if I put it on the other film speeds, it seems to work ok. Is this something I can fix or should I spend the money for someone to fix it? Camera seems in great condition otherwise, and I have several nice lenses for it too. Guy at camera shop said I should try to sell it on Craigslist for $50 or so. I can't believe it's not worth more than this.

Open the file door and check to see if the shutter blades look uneven, like they might have been pushed out of track. Sometimes it's simple to re-track them - other times it'll have to go to a repair shop. Another cause is the film motor wears out and has to be replaced - a job for the repair shop.

Hi Tim, I had the same problem , I took it to get it repaired & was told that it needed a new shutter solinoid , the repair cost £90 5years ago, you are probably looking at around £140+ today. mine has gone again & I am reluctant to spend that sort of money on it again. If you manage to get it repaired & there are periods of time when you wont be useing it take it out periodicly & just run the shutter a few times, it helps to stop it sticking. Good luck with whatever you decide to do . regards firstname.lastname@example.org

No need to look at the schematics. It only will give you a little headache. Replace Shutter release magnet (MG#3). While winding stage the Mg#3 suppose to catch the lever and any dirt or particle may prevent it. Clean it and it shoud take care of the problem. Good Luck -James.

You have a case of AE(auto exposure) Unit faulty or getting bad. It suppose to register as it move within the AE unit according to the exposure calculation but somehow it is broken. Technician usualy replace the AE unit and takes care of the problem. It can also be rebuilt if new parts are not available. This requires complete disassembly and mirror box removal. The average cost of repair probably runs around $100. Yes, "A" mode is correct for most of the shots and it was a state of art electronic system and more computerized than you think. It has 3 IC chips in there for precessing and 1 chip for the exposure. All works together for good. -James
