Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

I have an old Canon AE-1 ser# 2219631 on the top of the body and another code inside that is : W522. Just wondering what the numbers mean. Trying to date the camera and see where that serial number falls in the manufacturing chain. Thank you, Russ

You could enter the model into Wikipedia and you could get some info about what months or years that model was manufactured. As far as pinning down any further than that, you'd have to contact Canon.

Where is the shutter release button on a Canon AE-1? I am trying to load film in the camera, and the shutter crank "thing" is stuck. do i need to release it with a press of a button???


Did you actually mean shutter release or shutter advance? And to load the film,you need to pull the roll winder upwards. While you pull the winder upwards, it would have a tuck voice and then the back cover would open up. Make sure you have wound the entire roll before you open the back.

Canon AE-1 Program needs cleaned or am I missing a step?


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

I am guessing it may of been lying around for a while, some of the parts have stopped moving right, a good strip and service will solve it. There was a manual to service these years back or take to a service agent

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

My shutter release button is not working, instead the shutter is being released when I use the film advance lever.


Your camera has a bad magnet in the body.
Repairs will cost more than probably what you paid for it; I'd suggest getting a replacement (I got a Canon AE-1 Program for $40 on craigslist, ebay has good prices)

How do you change the prism on a canon AE-1


The prism is a major repair. If the prism is damage the the camera is trash. If the focusing screen in fornt of the prism is scratched then you can replace it if you can find another one. Because the camera is so old you will not be able to get them from Canon. Because of the age you may be better off buying another used AE-1

25 year old Canon AE-1 Program SLR camera mirror suddenly stuck up. I can catch the edge and gently pull it away, but it returns back to the stuck up position. I have already rewound most of the film back...


I wonder about answering posts that are a year old but here goes. The Canon AE-1 Program is a solid working classic but unfortunately Canon won't repair them anymore at least not in m y country anyway. However there are many individual repair people still bringing these cameras back from retirement to full service. Check with a local camera club or cruise e-Bay I've seen auctions selling service for these cameras in the US for as little as $79.95.

Aperture setting and shutter speed together?


Yes it does. Check your manual. If you don't have a manual you can get a pdf download from canon. This link should get you there. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=214&modelid=9429#DownloadDetailAct

My daughter is having trouble with using my old AE-1. She is trying to set the apperture manually but sees no change inside the lense. Can you tell me if there is something that she is not doing correctly...


The apeture is toward the back part of the lens. Shine a light down into the front of the lens and turn the apeture ring, you should see it change size.
