Sounds like your batteries are near dead, enough juice to run the light and shutter control but not enough for the motor drive (which the control system knows it must use when film is loaded). The MB-21 lights not coming on is the battery test -- two lights means batteries OK, 1 light means low battery, no lights means exhausted.

When i press the button to snap a shot, nothing happens. when I look through the view finder I only see black. I also can not advance the film. I put in new batteries and (yes) the lens cap is off.


Set camera to M90 or B, it will free the shutter. If if fires at these settings but not others then you have an electronic problem. If it does not fire at M90 or B then you have a mechanical problem. Clean the battery cap with a hard eraser and make sure the batteries are in correctly - does the battery check work? Also check to make sure that the battery compartment is not broken. Using a thin round tool, insert it into the battery compartment and push down slightly (not Hard!) and see if the battery compartment gives or you see a crank. Also check for impact around the rewind knob. The FRE resister plate there is made of glass and impact breaks it.

Where is the shutter release button on a Canon AE-1? I am trying to load film in the camera, and the shutter crank "thing" is stuck. do i need to release it with a press of a button???


Did you actually mean shutter release or shutter advance? And to load the film,you need to pull the roll winder upwards. While you pull the winder upwards, it would have a tuck voice and then the back cover would open up. Make sure you have wound the entire roll before you open the back.

I just put new batteries in my N65. I haven't used it in a while but it appeears to be working proper, ie the lcd comes on and indicates full battery and the view finder symbols are nice and bright green...


What I'm thinking is the shutter and or the aperture ring is lazy. Move the aperture ring up and down several time see if the little ring next to the the camera body is responding quickly to the change.
Do this without film in the camera.
What I'd suggest is setting the camera in "M" mode aperture at F8 manual set the ISO at 100 and the shutter speed at 1/60 shift the camera into manual focus. The shutter can be in AF-S (single frame with each depress of the shutter). Trip the shutter and listen to it work do that a few times (maybe three) then set the speed at 1/125 do the same test listen the shutter should sound faster. Repeat the test at 250 then 500 then 1000. Then start backing down to 1/60th again, listen to the response. In all manual mode the shutter has to fire it it isn't or the speed doesn't increase and then decrease then the shutter needs service.

Camera has a bad magnet, the A series were plagued by this.
Repairs will cost more than probably what it's worth.
The AE-1's used an electromagnet system to activate the shutter for a smoother press and less shake from the camera system.

I got lucky and recently purchased an AE-1 program that doesn't have this problem, it seems to be a hit and miss with these.

My camera's view finder will not show anything, it is black.


Your winder gear is toast, get a digital camera and save on film printing cost.

Nikon FE film winder jammed.


Is it the viewfinder or the film advance lever? If the viewfinder is not showing any image and the shutter is not getting released, then it could be a problem with the mirror box.To confirm, remove the lens and see if it gets released. To align the lens, you have to take it to the nearest service center (or repair shop).

You probably need to take the camera in for repair. It sounds like the film transport is not connected to the shutter/mirror cage ***'y.

Shutter stuck


Have you tried taking a picture on either the 125X or B mode?

If you are able to take a picture on the 125X or B mode, then it probably isn't the mechanical part of the camera, but the electronics. If so, try putting some fresh batteries in the camera.

If neither if these work, then the camera might be past its prime.

Take care & Happing Imaging!
