Ricoh KR10 Super

I recently picked up a Ricoh KR10 Super. The problem is minor. When I put a flash unit on the hot shoe, the shoe fell out. Apparently, the hot shoe was glued back on and the wire was not soldered back on. Otherwise, the camera is fully functional. Where can I get a top cover to replace this one?

Try a camera shop that still repairs obsolete camera's, if you have all the parts it can be fixed or replaced ( top cover ) with a good used one . If your KR10 has a flash socket on the front of the camera buy a flash bar and use that. Be sure the loose wire from the hot shoe is not touching anything.

Shutter broken


You have a cheap Chinese copy of a Ricoh KR10-Super.

Assuming the shutter is actually broken (you didn't give details of symptoms) you cannot get spares for either of them. Throw it away (keep the lens) and buy any other Pentax K-Mount 35mm SLR camera, they're virtually worthless these days (except for the all-manual Pentax K-1000 and a few high-end models).

The near-worthless resale values means that you can pick them up from your local FreeCycle (also Freegle in the UK only) groups for nothing.

Pentax, Cosina, Ricoh, Chinon are the main brand names for K-Mount SLR's, but if you have a choice go for Pentax first, Ricoh second and only take the others if they're free as they're worth even less than a set of new batteries.

My xti fell with the 430 ex II attached now it


The hot shoe was bent slightly causing the flash contacts to not touch those of the camera. By using a socket from a socket wrench set, place it over the grids of the hot shoe and tap firmly with a hammer to straighten it.

Olympus e510 hot-shoe doesn't respond...


Have you tried cleaning the hot shoe contact? If the contact is dirty it may not communicate with the camera. The "contact" Its the metal "circle" in the middle of the hot shoe. Using a pencil eraser, rub the contact gently until you create eraser crumbs, then gently rub the "circle" with a soft cloth. See if this fixes it.

Sunpak 383 problem


Try to trigger it by shorting Center of shoe mount and the side terminal with a small wire.If it is firing the flash is ok.
If not there is open connection in the sync jack ,due to repeated inserting of sync chord.The springy part inside is not going back to its normal position.
You can fix it your self by opening it(adapter only)
.If you are new to this take a photo of the wiring immediately after opening the shoe adapter to see the position if any wire breaks later on.
Do not give up .383 is great flash

Pentax me super camera


Hey judyrosebudd,
You should be able to use any flash that is not dedicated to another camera manufacturer. Even though the manufacturer lists this camera as a dedicated flash unit it still has the sync contact in the center of the hot shoe mount, which is all that is required to operate a all manual flash. This being said a dedicated flash should provide much more advanced options and simplicity of use. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Sunpak ring flash problem


I had a DX-12R for some time several years ago until it was stolen. I loved it. I recently purchased a used 8R and it is fine but I still like the 12R better. Especially the preview light feature. Ok. Make sure the batteries are all good, one bad apple does spoil the whole bunch. Check your cord connections and finally make sure the hot shoe connection is clean. That last one was usually the culprit when I had problems. Note that your hot shoe on your camera could also be going bad. I had a Ricoh that did that, I thought it was the flash. Good luck.
