Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera
I assume you've tried cleaning the battery contacts & trying to ensure they aren't bent out of shape. So, the most likely cause is that the power switch has failed. I have an A1 myself which is now around 23 years old and very well used so I would hate to do this to it - but my only suggestion is to forget it and pick up a secondhand one, perhaps on eBay. They go for £50 or less there - less than the cost of even getting an estimate for repair, let alone getting the work done. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
