Shutter stays opengreenspun.com : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread
I Took a picture with my AE-1, and the shutter stayed open. Flash unit was attached and I can remove the lens and move the lever to close the shutter, but the shutter will snap back open. Any suggestions?????

Similar thing happened to my wifes Olmpus OM4 and it was the battery that needed changing. Could be worth a try on your AE1. Good luck.
