You can just search 'Canon AE-1 manual' on google and a PDF file of the manual will come up. As long as your computer supports PDF files you can open it and print it or just read it!

Yesterday my camera was working fine but now when I try to forward the film the lever won't move all the way to the right to go forward, it's stuck and won't take pictures, what could be the problem?...


The camera may have tricked itself into thinking the film is at the end. I know that's not likely in an older manual focus SLR, but just fer grins, try pushing in the little pin on the bottom.
It could just be that the camera mechanism has jammed. When was the last time it was in to a repair guy for Clean, Lube, Adjust? Those AE-1 cameras are getting to that age where they need maintenance.
I had to get a couple of my manual focus SLRs in for CLA service too.

Try Google!

I did a quick search and came up with these two links. Both have slightly different versions of the manual.

Canon ae-1


To open the back pull on the rewind knob ( pulling up ) until back opens. Check that your 6 volt battery is ok ( ae -1 has an electronic shutter so will not work without a battery ): battery situated on the left hand side of the camera ( if it is facing you ) underneath small flip up door ( lock is at the bottom on the left of the small door ) . Check the battery by pressing the shutter release gently and seeing if your light meter needle moves. No movement ? replace battery. You have two modes for taking pictures : auto which is actually AV ( aperture priority) or full manual : both are set by moving the shutter speed dial on the top right hand side ( underneath film winding lever ).
