Sunil, there's a huge array of flashes that will suit that camera.
What you have is one of the old-faithfuls of the camera world. Not over-the-top glamerous bits, just basic necessary features that work well, and that camera will go for a long long time.
The hotshoe, the 'slide' on the top of the camera that accommodates the flash, is NOT a 'dedicated' shoe which means there is no auto or specific links between the flash and the camera.
You need to talk to someone over the counter because models of flashes are changing every day and I do not keep up to cover them all.
What I would be asking for is firstly, a hotshoe flash, then, an auto flash (this means the flash itself will meter the light output and adjust itself), then you want to buy a flash for its power output (guide number) don't waste your money on useless features for that camera, put the money into to flashes power, higher the guide number the better (GN20 is low, GN30 is good, GN40-45 is very high and likely a huge flash).
So, and auto flash, not dedicated, no fancy features, good GN (high 20s-mid 30s)
Also, don't buy brand names (ricoh, canon, nikon), pointless in this case. Look for generics, Metz, Sun, Sigma etc.

My Ricoh KR-5 won't keep the film door closed. How


The film doors in most 35mm SLR's is spring loaded with a release from the rewind knob. Chances are your spring has lost tension, slipped out of place, or the teeth that grab the door have been damaged. You can always use the handyman's secret weapon (duct tape) to fix the problem, but if you're looking for a more permanent and less gooey and unattractive solution you're going to need to find a shop.

If there aren't any locally, you can find some online, or google KEH Camera if you're not sure who online is reputable. It'll run you $35 for a repair estimate which is waived if you decide to have the work done. Keep in mind some parts, for some cameras, are hard or impossible to come by so your model may or may not be able to be repaired, or may be priced outside of what you're willing to pay to have repaired.

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:

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.

Can the 35mm SLR Ricoh Kr-5 Super II camera still work with the batteries dead?


Straightforward answer: no. Everything needs power to work except for the self timer, but even that won't fire the shutter without battery power.

Film


It's a 35mm camera, so it uses 35mm film (sometimes referred to as size 135).

You can download a manual from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/ricoh.htm
