you have a dial on top of your camera. where you can find 2 types of shots. one is Night scene. and other is Night snap shot. Second one is better.
Note that even a small hand shake will spoil the subject. Use a tripod for night shotting with flash
Generally a fuse blows on these, on the DC/DC converter (psu ) board. This is situated on the front of the camera, fairly easy to get at just involves undoing loads of screws!! The fuse is marked "K", replace or short out with a thin piece of wire. May be caused by changing lenses with the power on, but not sure.
Watch for the charged flash capacitor though!!
Had this problem with mine.
On most DSLR cameras you cannot compose or shoot using the LCD screen. The ability to preview the image using the LCD is fairly new to SLR's, and is known as "live view" on most models. So, like yourAE1, you still need to compose using the eye-level finder, then review your effort on the LCD later.
Sounds like you have shot so many photos you have worn out the shutter box. The box is usually good for about 10,000 actuations... so... sounds like you have gotten far more than that out of it.
I have one XTi with a buddy right now who is a certified Canon, Nikon and Fuji tech and he's putting in a new shutter box for one of my customers. It's the first one he's done so I will see if he wants to keep doing them or not and how much he would want if he decides he will continue to do them for me.

If you want the subject sharp, but the background blurred, use a large aperture and high speed exposure. This will reduce the focal length.
Remember that a large apertures are often used for night shots because they allow more light through the lense. A fast exposure will prevent the shot from being over exposed if you are taking it in daylight.
Flash photography is not recommended for the effect you are after.
