Question about Photography
I just got a Ricoh KR-10, and I the focus ring won't move (aperture works fine). It's almost as though it's locked or something. I don't want todamage it, so I've been gentle with it, but I'd really like to get itworking so I can take some photos! Any suggestions?
you can fix this if you have a jeweler's screwdriver ( x- head ).
1-take the lens off the camera.
2-take off the front name plate with a thin knife blade just right of H of RICOH name. gently pry the name plate up till it pops off ( not screwed on ).
3-remove the three screws from the plastic ring, ( large ring ).
4- pull the ring off.
5- where the metal ring touches the plastic lens barrel apply a few drops of light machine oil.
try to move the focus ring back and forth until it's free.
it can be further broken down but then the lens will have to be re-focused. as long as there is no impact damage this will work.
