Canon Elan II battery problem with the shutter door

Two things have gone wrong with this camera. Only one kind of battery seems to work the best which is the CR25 duricell and even with that battery being used now I get shutter lock up and must turn the dial to off and turn it back on again to have the shutter drop back down. I cleaned the battery terminals, purchased a battery pack and still the problem remains. Not sure if it is inside the Elan's circutry and is it worth fixing. I shot a whole roll of 36 at this years airshow and got nada. Each shot the shutter remained in the up position until I used the dial to off and then back on again. Any thoughts?

You have camera shutter problem if battery is good.
That's very common on camera when they go bad.
It's like a car timing belt snapped or the water pump decided not to turn.
Film cameras are very cheap now.

Camera does not turn on

Rosa, I think the only thing you did was get out the batteries and tried to charge them and then jut put them back in the camera.
Only a few things could have gone wrong.
One or more cells could have died, during charging. It can happen, special with batteries that have a uneven use. Like once or twice a year the camera comes out the box and then the batteries are charged. Even when you don't use he camera, make it a habit to charge the batteries every few months.
Then it could be your batteries are still in good shape and fully charged, but you put in one or more calls the wrong way around.
Please check carefully if all the cells are inserted correct.
If nothing works, and you can't check the voltage of your batteries, try another set of batteries.

Which battery to use with eos elan?

The EOS Elan uses a single 6V lithium 2CR5 battery, which should be available at most department, electronics, and office-supply stores. If all else fails, you can buy it online from here.
