Re: Need replacement Shutter for EOS ELANIIE

You can order the shutter assembly from Canon or just the 2 blade assemblies if that is the only problem.

The part number for the entire shutter is CG1-3155-000 and the individual blade assemblies are CF1-2763-000 and CF1-2764-000.

Canon's parts phone number is 1-732-521-7230

Please note that the Elan IIe is a very complicated camera, beyond the capabilities of most do-it-yourselfers. However, you may still want to give it a try!

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.

Shutter opens, but doesn't close? I advance my film, press the shutter release, and it opens, but stays open. The only way my shutter will close is if I press the battery check button. I read a trouble...

That camera needs tobe services. The IC2 is the technicians code that tells where to start. With the problems you describe it would be best ot let a technician overhaul and recalibrate it if possible. then you will have a camera that operates like new.

My AE1 is malfunctioning. The shutter is being released when I advance instead of allowing me to expose the film with the shutter button.

Hmmm. Sounds like something internal is not engaging as it should. It probably is a plastic gear that has aged a little too long, and some of the teeth are broken off. Yes, this will need a trip to the repair shop. It's probably due for Clean, Lube and Adjust anyway. and many others will repair this camera for you. Luckily, AE-1 was a great seller for Canon, so there are lots of spare parts out there. On Ebay, they are inexpensive and common. Buy one as a backup or parts donor, as they are old enough to start falling apart.

Photos are dark halfway across as if something was blocking lens.

Take the lens off and charge the shutter. with the film door open hold the camera toward a light. Fire the shutter and if you see half light in the film window the shutter magnets need replaced. Or the shutter is not being charged enough. If so,camera must be disassembled by a repair shop.

My Cannon Rebel EOS 35mm film Camera is producing blank Film

If you are getting some photos where only part of the image is visible, then I suspect that they were photos where you used a flash.

Cameras have a specified maximum shutter speed for use with a flash, this is called its 'sync speed'. This is the fastest speed that the camera will need to open the lead shutter and close the trailing shutter in order to expose the entire surface area of the image and have it evenly lit by the flash unit. If you shoot too fast of a speed, then the shutter will only be partly completed its exposure and you'll get a photo with only part of the image showing. The faster the speed past the sync speed, the less the resulting area of the image. Most cameras will have a sync speed of 1/250 or less. I think a lot of the Rebel models are 1/90 - consult your manual.

Shutter squeal, Canon Cough a1 Ae1

This is in german. Look hard at the pictures. You only need to remove the bottom plate. Use a hypodermic needle loaded with just one drop of non-acidic oil. Practice first. Stick the battery back in an operate the shutter 30 times. leave the camera overnight upside down.

Running the text through Babel will give you a good idea. It does work.
