Canon A-1 Timer Problem
I got a Canon A-1 last week. Everything seems to be working properly except for the timer.
I wind the camera, set the switch to 2 or 10, and when I press the shutter the camera fires normally.
Any suggestions on how to get the timer working??

If you are sure you are doing the right thing...

How to use self-timer:

Old electronics and old clockwork mechanism can fail over time. You could use an accessory timer (screw-in ones) to work around it. Or, you could try to repair.

Since it sounds like you are operating it correctly I'm thinking the switch isn't recognizing it's set to 2 or 10 but thinks it's on A. A repair job I think.
