AE1 winder problemgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread
Can you help? Came to load new film into my AE1 but wind on button jammed. No problems previously. (Had used power winder on last roll.)Note that the small black film release button on camera base is stuck in up position. Battery is OK. Exposure meter working. Can turn spool manually.

First thing that comes to mind is to try to see if the film advance lever is only partially cocked. You might try to cock it, in other words and try triping the shutter.
