Can't see image through lens


It would seem that the mirror is locked up. Some cameras have a mirror lock to reduce vibration after the view is focused and ready to expose. Check your camera features. If it doesn't have this feature than the camera may need servicing.

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

How to brighten the viewfind on a Nikon F 100


If you think the screen is dirty then you can remove the view finder screen inside the camera from the lens opening. Also, there are other view finder screens that you can purchase. Read page 65 of the F100 manual to see how to change focus screens.

Picture in View Finder perfectly clear, but out of focus


I would check IS(image stablization) setting and continous shooting setting to make sure these features are turned off. You want to experiment with different IS settings and definitely turn the continous shooting mode because the continouse mode may not focus 100% in order to shoot multiple shots. Hope this helps. -James. P.S. In my case it was too difficult to distinguish the quality of focus in the VF or LCD so you may not see the focus issue on them.

Film


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

Ricoh KR-10 locked focus ring



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.

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
.
