AE 1 wind on problem : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread

Can you help? I came to load a new film into my AE1 only to find winder jammed. No problems previously. Noted that film release button in base is stuck in up position. Is this cause or effect?

Battery is OK and exposure meter operates. Only thing I can think of is that I had power winder A fitted last time I used the camera.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

1) Broken part between gears(top) 2)Camera got shock. Must be reseted. 3) Rust problem 4) If a curtain remains slightly open push the curtain to the close position.This will enable the winder
