Everything seems to function well, actually, I've never used this camera. Got if off of ebay, so maybe I was gypped. Anyways, the film advance lever seems to be stuck. It only goes half way. I can put...

If the lever won't advance even when there is no film in the camera, then I would say there is a problem. (p.s. You haven't told us the make and model)

Try pressing the film release button on the underside of the camera. This should unstick the advance roller.
If possible, replace the watch battery for your camera (inserted in the bottom, right by the teeny black button I mentioned above).
Change your exposure setting to Bulb exposure and back.
If all else fails, take your camera into the darkroom (or at least a completely light-insulated closet, bathroom, etc.), and pop open the back and recover your film. Hopefully you won't have too much wasted film on your hands.
Good on you, however, for not forcing the lever. Nothing good will come of that.

When i try to advance my ae-1 camera it takes a picture! how do i fix it

The magnets that control the shutter are the likely suspect. Dirt and debris can cause them not to hold properly. Hence, it fires the shutter when you advance the film. It is something you can repair yourself. ............or.
you can also try....

i'm not an expert on the AE-1. It is a camera I've never had any desire to own. But on most older slr camera the rewind knob will turn when the film is advanced. But only after the slack has been taken out of the film still in the canister. Since you've already taken a few shot the film shot be very secure on the take up spool. To check that it is, slowly crank the film rewind crank clockwise. After a few turns the film should become tight in the canister, and you will feel the tension. If this happens then the film was loaded properly. If after quite a few turns you still feel nothing, then the film was not properly inserted into the take up spoll. If the film was not loaded correctly the film leader will go inside the canister as you crank. But that is not a problem. Any photo lab can pull the leader back out. Just make sure they know what happened.

We are unable to take any pictures

Could you be a little more specific? Is the film not advancing? Is the shutter not releasing? Do you have fresh batteries?

Film advance is automatic when batteries are in it.

My camera won't advance the film

If it has not been used in a while, the batteries may be dead and/or the contacts on the cap and in the body may have corrosion build up. Try fresh batteries after you clean the contact points with an eraser. The batteries go in positive up, toward the cap
