About the only thing you can do is clean the batt. cover and contacts in batt. holder,use a pencil eraser, be careful with the contacts in holder. There are no parts avail. for this model. However this is a rugged camera and you could buy a hand held light meter.

Lite meter don't work I bought it off internet seller said it was in exl.cond.it looks that's all


The built-in through-the-lens CdS exposure metering system of your KR-5 SUPER operates on power activated by two 1.5V SR-44 silver oxide batteries, which are supplied together with your camera. Have you changed the battery? Also, many of these older cameras the light meters are not very good. I would suggest getting one of the free smartphone light meter apps.

Battery not charging while running


Hi Anonymous, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12 volts or better after charging.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor. Good luck

Light meter won't move


Check you battery ends and make sure there is NO corrosion. An emory board works good.....also check the contacts in the camera well.

Installed a new battery on my 99 fxr at 200 miles it died wont hold a charge same thing hapend on previous batery


Hi Joe, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for drop in aprerage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v while cranking replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read

Hi i brought ricoh kr5 i need to get flash for it where can i get that and i found at bottom of camera space for battries do i have to putbatteries to use it thanks


The KR-5 Super II is totally reliant on batteries in order to function. Use two SR-44 cells fitted with the + side towards the cover. LR-44's also work but will give slightly inaccurate meter readings. If you use slide film then avoid using LR-44's but if you use print film it's not really a problem.

The flash is just any standard, non-dedicated, automatic or manual flashgun. There are millions of them around, perfectly good and unused, so there's no need to pay for one. Just ask on your local FreeCycle or Freegle groups.

I have a ricoh kr5 and when i take picture the mirror does not come back down and the shutter will not open


The batteries need replacing. Winding the film and setting the shutter is mechanical on your camera, but releasing the shutter is done electronically. Dead batteries cause mirror lock-up.

Sears ks super camera.


You'll have to remove the bottom cover. Either the mirror box or the shutter are stuck. re-cocking it is possible by moving the wind stop clear of the bottom portion of the film advance shaft.
