Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera
The shutter button won't depress and the wind on lever won't work I pushed the wind back lever on the bottom without a film in and that is still depressed. Can you help
Have you change with a new battery?
Or check the battery with a DVM(digital volt meter).
Or get some batteries and connect in series to equal to that voltage and use two wire leads. One lead to -negative side of the battery, other lead to +positive. Now, -neg to neg of camera and +pos to pos of camera.
You now have power to the camera to test. This will save money rather than buying the camera's battery for testing. AA, C or D will work, just look on the camera's battery to see the right voltage.
Examples: with two batteries (1.5VDC + 1.5VDC = 3..0VDC). So -(negative) of one battery to + (positive) of the second battery with solder.
-(-neg, battery, pos+) solder to -(neg, 2nd battery, pos+)+
left side , use black wire on -(Neg) and solder
right side, use red wire on +(Pos) and solder.
Now you have two leads, use those to connect to camera.
Do you get data from viewfinder?
