To open the back pull on the rewind knob ( pulling up ) until back opens. Check that your 6 volt battery is ok ( ae -1 has an electronic shutter so will not work without a battery ): battery situated on the left hand side of the camera ( if it is facing you ) underneath small flip up door ( lock is at the bottom on the left of the small door ) . Check the battery by pressing the shutter release gently and seeing if your light meter needle moves. No movement ? replace battery. You have two modes for taking pictures : auto which is actually AV ( aperture priority) or full manual : both are set by moving the shutter speed dial on the top right hand side ( underneath film winding lever ).

The same happened once to my A-1. If I rememeber well, button popped out again after sliding the double exposure lever under the shutter lever and then winding the shutter. Hope this helps.

Shutter release magnet faulty ( your camera is cocked but since you cannot release the shutter you cannot wind the film ). Remedy : open bottom cover by removing the two screws. You will see two small electro magnets one on the left hand side and the shutter release one on the right hand side ( it is the bigger one of the two ). The very thin wires from the magnet to the small circuit board on the right hand side may be broken : inspect and resolder 10 joints you see on the p.c. board. If no joy replace the s.r.magnet.

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.
