If you're asking how do you set it, you should have a light meter. You can also use the automatic settings to eliminate the guesswork. Fir the manual use, the smaller the number, the larger the opening. An average setting is f8. f16 or f22 for a sunny day.

Asahi Pentax Spotmatic SP jammed shutter


Have the film come to the end of the roll and the camera will not fire, if so rewind the film. Sorry, a shutter is not a self service item. This should be sent in for a CLA.

Advance lever and shutter stuck how do I fix it


Is there film in the camera? If so it may be at the end of the roll and thus when advancing the film it jammed. Rewind the film then see if the lever and shutter operate. If not then a CLA is needed.

I took it to get the film developed and not one of my pics turned out.. is there anything i can do to fix this problem..?


1) With no film in the camera, take out the lens.
2) Open the back cover and aim the camera towards light source ( not the Sun) and trip the shutter at the different shutter speeds while looking at the shutter curtains.
3) If you see the light, the shutter is running.
4) If the shutter is running, film might not be threaded properly to the film take up reel.

Film release button on bottom of body is stuck in. Wont pop back out.


If you can not wind and release the shutter, the film release button will not come up.
If you can not trip the shutter, by replacing the mirror release magnet at the bottom will usually fix the problem.

Film advance


In most film cameras, a battery is not necessary to manual advance film using the lever. Your Canon AV-1 is no exception. I have owned two cameras from the same group, the AE-1 and the Canon A-1. Neither required a battery for manual film advance.

Make sure the ring around the shutter release button is set to "A", otherwise the shutter won't release and the film lever won't work correctly. If the ring shows an "L", the shutter release is locked.

Here's a graphic of the batteries that can be used in your AV-1:

No shutter/film advance


with electronic cameras, it is the control circuitry. send it for service. your service agent probably will replace the complete pcb as they don't know or wouldn't care to diagnose which minor component went wrong.
