Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera
Got myself a mint condition Canon A1 off ebay,everything seems to work fine but it drains a brand new battery overnight.Is this a common problem?
This is definately not a common problem the battery under normal use should last about a year. I beleive what is causeing this is you either have the exposure preview switch or the exposure memory switch turned on causeing the exposure meter to be taking a reading all the time and draining the battery. Those switches are located on the front of the camera to the left of the lens. If this doesn't resolve the issue I would have the camera looked at by an camera repair technician.
