I've been shooting on my Canon 514 XL-S for about a year or so now and I haven't had any problems with it. I'm also very new to using film cameras, so I am a bit clueless.
I was in the middle of shooting today and the camera stopped working out of the blue. At first I thought it was the batteries but, when I tested them, they were still full of energy. The contacts on the camera were clean and free of corrosion but I was getting nothing out of the camera.
I had a small digital camera mounted to the top of the 514, so I have a sound recording of the moment the camera stopped working.
Does anyone know what could have happened?
EDIT: When I turn the switch to the 'R' position I can hear a faint high pitched whining coming from the camera.
