Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera
My AE1 seems to be stuck on self-timer no matter what the settings are (A,L,S,Program, B, etc.)
I am thinking of changing the battery to see if that helps.
Could there be any other cause that I can fix?
The battery is not the problem. It is more likely the the internal switch has failed, (always stuck on self timer). The switch is a ring around the release button for the shutter. The small black tab covers the red LED in normal release mode, the self timer is on when the tab is facing forward.
