The same happened once to my A-1. If I rememeber well, button popped out again after sliding the double exposure lever under the shutter lever and then winding the shutter. Hope this helps.

Asahi Pentax Spotmatic SP The film rewind button is fully depressed and won't pop out, and the shutter button isn't working.

if the camera is jammed for any reason, then the rewind button will not pop out. on this model it was common that the mirror cock lever at the bottom jumped. in which case the camera will jam up.

remove three screws holding the bottom cover, remove cover. in the middle of the camera is a lever that needs to be latched by pushing it forward. the camera should release and revert to normal usage.

if this is not the case then there may be something jammed in the winding or shutter gears. in which case you would have to remove the top cover and/or front covers.

Hello, just found my 35mm ae-1 camera. took some pictures and its not rewinding back up . little crank is moving but film is not going back in. am I missing a step?

Did you remember to push the rewind release button, on the bottom of the camera first? Failure to do so will either not allow you to rewind the film (without applying a lot more force than needed), rip off the film sprocket holes, damage the camera's internal gearing, or any number of other nasty things.

There should be a small button on the camera's bottom baseplate, press it in and it should rewind smoothly.

The Film advance lever wont move, the shutter button does nothing(i can push it down but nothing happens), and the button on the bottom is stuck in. In both cases this happened when there we no film in the...

Okay this is completely on memory. With the button on the bottom pushed in the camera is waiting for your to rewind the film back into the canister after this is done lift the wheel (not the crank it can break) the wheel is just below the crank and the back of the camera will open so you can take the film out. Reload a fresh roll close the door and advance to the first frame you are back in business again.

My Canon AE-1 Program will not rewind. I shot the whole roll, rewound a little, and then accidentally opened the back cover. The counter reset to S, and the rewind crank just unscrews when I try to...

I think you have already ruined the film except the frames that are rewind back to the film cartridge.
You can take the film out from the camera, push in the rewind button at the bottom, pull out the film from the film take up reel.
On the film cartridge, turn on the long tube in the middle clockwise to wind all the film back into the cartridge.
If you had the back opened briefly, do manual film rewinding in the dark room.

Canon AE-1 won't rewind film without tearing it up.

misstigeress,
is the film being ripped along the sprocket holes? if so, the rewind button is not unlocking the drive sprocket. with film removed open the film door and push the rewind button in, the drive sprocket should turn freely. now charge the shutter with the advance lever. the rewind button should pop out and the drive sprocket should not turn freely.
if the sprocket did not turn freely with button pushed in, the camera needs repaired. there are no new parts for this model canon so any parts needed will be good used.

Light meter problem and blank developed film

I'm afraid you have a somewhat serious problem. There is a tungsten cable that runs from the speed dial to the rewind side if the camera. This cable sets the brushes for the electrical contacts the are under the rewind assembly. Adjusting speeds or ASA changes the position of the contacts.

It is very likely that the cable has broken and needs replaced. Canon no longer supports these nor do they have parts

Rewind!?

If it is an SLR, there is a recessed button on the bottom of the camera that you push, then you flip the little handle out of the supply rear on top and crank clockwise, after the film is rewound and the real spins real easy, lift the supply real with the little handle and the back will pop open.
