Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera
After replacing the primary battery a few months back, I tried to use the camera and both the flash and the camera would not work. I replaced the flash batteries with new ones, but it still would not work either on or off the camera. I replaced the camera battery and strength test button indicated a strong power source. However, a week later I tried to use the camera and the test button gave no beeps at all, and I know that my previous batteries have lasted at least a year before needing replacement. I have checked all contacts and other parts and can find no reason why it should not work.
Any help will be appreciated.
If the contacts have been cleaned in the battery chamber, check the lower contact post - it's spring loaded and often gets stuck and doesn't make good contact with the battery. A little WD40 usually will free it up. Your batteries are probably still good.
