Hello, i have a Canon A1 that wasnt showing any signs of power even with new batteries. I proceeded to open the top of the camera and the black and orange wires that are under the winding lever have come loose with the brass/copper film that they were connected to. The question being can i fix it with aluminum foil and solder, maybe solder the two wires together and have it basically bypassing the switch and everytime i want to turn it off i need to take the battery off or does it not work like that? I have no knowledge of this electronics
Thanks in advance and please forgive my semi botched english.

I think the most reliable solution would be soldering the two wires together. Before you do that you could verify solution by just twisting together and installing/removing the battery. Have battery out anytime you are moving the wires around.
