The only thing i can suggest is pushing the film rewind button on the bottom of the camera body. crank the film back in to the canister and drop a new roll in. Ihave experianced this problem once or twice when I rolled canisters from bulk film and it would get jammed.

Good luck

My film advance lever is stuck. pushed button under camera didn't work


You may have hit the end of the film. Rewind the film back to the spool until the very end gets back in the shell.
If you think you still have unexposed film do the following. Rewind about 1-2 full rotations. Cover the lens using the cap. We're doing this so that step 2.3 will not spoil your last pictures. Take 2 shots (with the lens cover). This time the button at the button should have popped out.

How do i get my advance lever to move it seems jammed


A Canon AE-1 is not an EOS camera the Canon "A" series is manual focus while EOS is auto focus. First thought In answer to the advance lever stuck or jammed I'm going to assume the camera is in serviceable condition and has not been subjected to water damage or harsh use. If we are dealing with just the advance lever then I'd say that you have over advanced the film at the last frame. I've done this myself after loading a 24 exposure and thinking I had a 36 exposure film. At the bottom of the camera there is a little pin which releases the advance lever and allows the user to rewind the film. Under normal conditions when it's time to rewind the film into the canister this pin offers little resistance to pushing in to release, however depending on how much force the advance lever has been subjected to increases the tension on this pin. Push the pin in and rewind the film.
Second thought is if you have film in the camera and it has not been used fully then it's possible that the film has already been advanced to a new frame and the shutter needs to be activated before the lever will become free and advance to the next frame.
Other problems with the Canon "A" series cameras is they have a tendency to dry out the lubrication and begin to squeak when the shutter is fired. This condition can eventually result is a shutter seizure and give the same advance lever condition.
Those are the three things that come to mind over this lever problem lets hope it's just run out of film.

Film Advance Lever and Shutter Curtain


If the film advance lever is "flopping" back and forth, the problem is most likely a jammed advance mechanism inside. The shutter is cocked *mechanically* and released the same way--no battery power is needed. One old trick you could try to release things is to push the rewind button on the bottom of the camera.*sometimes* it will free up the mechanism enough to unjam.

Film advance lever goes back and forth putting no tension or movement inside the camera to advance the film. Was working fine, then after taking my last shot, lever is just sort of loose., couldnt load new...


first make sure the rewind button is not stuck down. open the back door and rotate the advance sprocket back and forth to release the button. if that did not work take the bottom cover off and check the white plastic gear near the take up shaft. if that gear broke it will have to be repaired by a camera repair person.
there are no new parts for this model so get a cost estimate first.

Not letting take pics or advance film


Check the batteries first. The electromagnetic shutter requires power to function. To free up the shutter and advance lever, rotate the command switch to "M90" (if I recall). That should re-set the shutter and allow you to advance the lever mechanically.

Advancing film


You can safely remove the bottom cover to have a look. Once you have the bottom plate off you can move the film advance lever and check the movement on the bottom, there may be debris or a broken part

Help, my camera wont take pictures


Did you try pushing the shutter button? It may already be wound. Otherwise, try pushing the rewind button in and holding it while you wind the lever. Now, it MAY be that your at the end of the roll-what does your counter say?
