Canon A-1 35mm Shutter Issue or not

Hello, I recently picked up one of these at a flea market. Can someone here tell me if the 6V battery is required in order for the film **** arm and shutter to work properly? Does this have and electro magnet inside for this operation?

Thanks

Greg

Hey dentryte,
According to the manufacturer this camera does require the battery to function at all. The usable batteries for this camera are Silver Oxide Battery (6V ) (Eveready (UCAR) No.544, JIS 4G 13, Mallory PX 28; Alkaline Manganese Battery (6V) (Eveready (UCAR) No.537, Mallory 7K l 3). I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you don't have one. I hope this helps!

Where can I get a replacement power cord?


I think you mean a power transformer. The power requirements for your device is embossed near the power input jack. Usually 3v, 6v, 9v, or 12volt. You can usually find a variable or universal power adapter that has a variety of different input plugs and a switch that adjusts voltage to what you might need. You can find them in electronic stores, ebay, amazon, flea markets, or photo accessory areas in department stores. Some toy departments too.

Batteries wear out very fast, I need a 6V transformer


You can use any power supply with the following requirments:
output 6vdc, 400ma, plug 5.5mm x 2.1 mm with negative center.
You can buy one from your local market or from this link. In the last case you will get some various connectors and you have to check for the one that is better fixing. Also beware the polarity of this connector, the negative point HAS to feed in the center of the connector.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards
