Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera
Fortunately the older SLRs are mechanical and pretty simple to detect problems with. Without being there and having a "hands on" experience with it, my first explanation would be that your shutter is not functioning properly, (opening and closing) when you trigger it. This could be caused by dust or a faulty trigger release. It then needs to be taken apart and cleaned, and or mechanically checked for obstructions or broken parts from the trigger to the shutter. Either way, it's costly to have a shop perform these operations and there are few that do that anymore. You might want to consider going to a DSLR. Not to push you in that direction or try to sell you one....but I do have a Nikon D80 with 5 lenses and a metal carrying case available.
