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

My advance lever is stuck o my Ricoh camera. I had a roll of film get stripped in it and took it out in the dark room and developed it but now even with no film in it the lever won't advance. I've looked...


Your camera is in cocked position with shutter fully cocked and that is why you cannot advance the film advance lever. Set the shutter to x position ( on your shutter speed dial on the right hand side and top of your camera ) . The shutter should release and then you should be able to advance the film advance lever.

My Ricoh kr-5sv's rewind button is still pressed in after i rewound andd took out the film. how do i get it to pop out again?


The rewind button will usually pop out once you turn your film advance lever. In order for you to be completely familiar with your camera, here's a link to a user's guide in pdf format:

Hope this helps.

Film advance lever will not advance


Sometimes film jamming in the film can cause the shutter to be very difficult to **** . I had an Pentax years ago that was similar in design to the Ricoh and loved it.
Using a little, but NOT a lot more force may help you to complete the cocking action. Other than that I would remove the film and blow out the mechanism with compressed air. Don't know if this will definitely solve the issue. But hopefully it will.
Best Regards, Mark

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.

Film advance lever goes back and forth putting no tension or movement inside the camera to advance the film. Was working fine, then after taking my last shot, lever is just sort of loose., couldnt load new...


first make sure the rewind button is not stuck down. open the back door and rotate the advance sprocket back and forth to release the button. if that did not work take the bottom cover off and check the white plastic gear near the take up shaft. if that gear broke it will have to be repaired by a camera repair person.
there are no new parts for this model so get a cost estimate first.

Sears ks-2/ricoh xr-7 film advance and shutter release problem


You probably need to take the camera in for repair. It sounds like the film transport is not connected to the shutter/mirror cage ***'y.

stevdan,

take the screws off the bottom cover. there is a small lever pointing toward the front of camera with a black screw on it. gently move it to the left, this will release the lock lever. Now advance the lever and the shutter should fire. if not, it is not repairable. no parts
.

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.
