Canon service advice up to AE1 : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread

Hello Canon fans I am an ex Canon service tech (1970's) and have repaired hundreds of Canon cameras from that and the earlier era up to the AE1. If you have any repair related questions drop me a note and I'd be glad to give you free advice. Cheers Gary Cullen Vancouver Canada

I recently bought a Canon AE1 at an auction. When I turn the shutter speed to 60 or below, and depress the shutter release, the shutter opens but doesn't close unless I push the battery check button. I am very new to photography and have no idea what the problem is. please help
