Constant beeping when camera is on and any button is pressed
I have been using the canon ae-1 program for a few weeks now with no issues. However, today when I tried to take a photo, I could not. When I switch the camera on (to either the A or S setting) and then press any button - the shutter, light reader, battery check, etc. The camera just begins to beep constantly. I cannot take a photo with the sutter, advance the film, or see a lightreading though the viewfinder. The only way to get the beeping to stop is to switch the camera back off, to the L setting.
I have read a few things saying the battery check button might be stuck down - i can press it down, but am not sure if it is coming all the way back up or to a middle stage.
any help would be greatly appreciated!!
