Question about Canon EOS Elan 7e with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera
When i try take a picture sometimes the shutter stays open and the battery sign flashes but the batteries are new.I take off the batteries and when i put them back the camera works fine..Any idea??
This could be one of a number of problems, but first check the battery contacts are clean. These cameras rely on an elecrtic motor to drive the mirror and prime the shutter. The extra current drawn may cause the voltage to drop if the battery contacts are dirty.
Another possibility is a shutter fault, either the shutter has a sticky deposit or there is an electrical problem. Last time I had one like this I found a crack in the solder connection to the shutter.
Putting a new battery meants the camera will reset to a default setting. This means the shutter will be instructed to fire and the mirror return to it's initial position.
