Question about Ricoh KR-5 SUPER II 35mm SLR Camera
The mirror only returns when lens removal, it appears that on his return back it locks when the lens is at infinity. Maybe problem whith the mirror glue???

There are some wide angle lenses that will hit the mirror and not allow it to move correctly. Wide angle lenses go further back on the film plane, so they can't be used with that camera. Try a Pentax.

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.

Sounds like the back of the lens may be sticking too far into the mirror box and interfering with the mirror travel. There are also a couple of bumpers on the bottom of the mirror box, and the plastic has become soft and breaks off, allowing too much travel for the levers. Try another lens first. If it does it with all lenses then you will have to search out a repair facility that still does something so old.
