Fixing the Canon AE-1 Program Squeal

A well known problem with the Canon AE-1 Program is that the camera makes a loud squealing sound when the shutter is released. This is actually caused by a part in the mirror mechanism needing relubricated.

There are many tutorials for fixing this online and virtually all of them are wrong. You cannot just drip some oil into the camera, and you should NEVER use something like WD-40 on a camera.

This tutorial by Gene Pate shows you the PROPER way to fix the Canon Squeal by disassembling the camera and properly lubricating the affected mechanism.

We also have service guides for the AE-1 Program from the National Camera Repair School and the Society of Photo-Technologists in the Related Items below.

We also have a tutorial for fixing the Canon Mirror Squeak problem written by Gene Pate.
