Canon AE1 shutter stays open when speed is 60 or below : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread

I recently bought a canon AE1 at an auction. When I turn the shutter speed below 60, and press the shutter release, the shutter will stay open until I press the battery check button. I am very new to photography and don't know what the problem is. Can any one please help??
