How do I remove film from the camera?

wow a film camera!!!! , didn't know any of these still existed (less than 60mm) anyways you'll need to rewind the film back into housing , this is done with tiny crank on top of film advance wheel (don't go to fast !!!) slow and steady wins the race!! you'll also need to activate the shutter release lever (around the crank someplace) DO NOT OPEN CAMMERA TILL YOU HAVE REWINDED ALL THE FILM INTO HOUSING !!!!!!!!!!!! it will ruin all the photos

Ricoh KS Super II 35mm SLR camera will not advance film and the shutter will not work. i love this camera and hate to throw it away. can i get it fixed somewhere and how much will it cost?

If the batterys are ok ,try rotating the speed control to X and the mirror will unlock from its upper position and the film will advance next time you try. Also the camera will not operate unless the leaver is moved away from its rest position, ie level with the camera body to its first movement area.

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.

My cameras advance lever will not spring back and allow the film to move to the next frame. How do i fix it?

push the film release on the bottom of the camera and try to continue forward then. If you are trying to get 27 pictures on a 24 exp. roll you may have advanced your film so far that it is stuck on the piece of tape that attaches the film to the spool. Take only 24 pictures.

My camera wont advance

Don't push too hard, the film sprocket holes will tear and make it difficult for the lab processor. No harm to the camera if you push too hard.
How many exposures in the roll?
12, 24, 36 ? It may be at the end of the roll.
Rewind it. I know, maybe not full roll exposed .. I say it is a small price to pay.

I can't get the back open to load the film

Hmm, on most SLR's like this one, you pull up on the rewind knob to release the film door

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.

The film won't advance

Look on the shutter release button, there is a lock switch on bottom of the button. turn it toward the prism.

Ricoh KR-5 SUPER II Shutter will not activate.

I doubt you still need help with this considering it's over 8 months later... but the same thing has been happening to me lately, I've had to force the self timer to start by giving it a little push, once it gets going it starts to work normally again.
