Shutter Lockups on Canon EOS 30 SLR Film camera

Hi there,

I am having some shutter lockup issues with my SLR. It seems it is happening on 1/30 1/60 and 1/90. 1/125 is perfect.

So I have to press the shutter twice, one to fire the shutter and then another to release the shutter. It is almost as if it is in the Mirror lock up state that is an feature on the camera (which is actually off).

    Have you tried this camera with another lens?

    when I switch on my EOS 50E the mirror always locks up on the first shutter press. It only releases when I press shutter a second time. After that it usually works fine.

Camera not working


Hi Jane,
When we press the shutter release the mirror flips up after the shutter opens and closes the mirror flips down. When it flips down we then see out the viewfinder.

At first blush is sounds as though the mirror flipped up but not back down. Remove the lens look inside the camera press the shutter release what happens?

Cordially,

In manual mode you should be able to change the shutter speed simply by turning the main dial (the thumbwheel located near the shutter release button).

Hi , I have a Canon AE-1 camera and I'm haviving a problem with the film advance lever . It seems to be stuck . It will not advance. Have you ever come across this problem before? Thanks ,John.


Canon AE-1 35mm SLR is a manual focus camera EOS is Canon's designation of auto focus EOS stands for Electro-Optical System. The problem you are experiencing is caused by several little things that throws the camera, wind and cocking leaver out of synchronization or simply come to the end of the roll. There is a frame counter window just to the left of the shutter release behind the shutter speed dial. Also if you have just loaded film in the camera it may not be seated correctly check by releasing the rewind button, wind the film back but not all the way and open the camera to restart the film.

Takes a picture when film advance lever is moved


The magnets that control the shutter are the likely suspect. Dirt and debris can cause them not to hold properly. Hence, it fires the shutter when you advance the film. It is something you can repair yourself. I can describe the procedure if you are interested.

Shutter Speed


If your shutter speeds are off you can compensate by changing the film speed setting,
quicker ( than should be ) shutter speeds require you to set the film speed to slower ASA .. KC

Shutter stuck


not sure about the 'BC', but the shutter problem is most likely due to shutter oil leakage. do you see some shiny black oil on the edges of the shutter blinds? i've had this happen to me once and the repair shop managed to clean it. seems like a problem that bugs Canon EOS cams. Replacing the shutter would most definitely cost more than the value of the camera, so you might want to try this
