SOURCE: 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.

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

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.

I have a ricoh kr5 and when i take picture the mirror does not come back down and the shutter will not open


The batteries need replacing. Winding the film and setting the shutter is mechanical on your camera, but releasing the shutter is done electronically. Dead batteries cause mirror lock-up.

I am unable to view through the viewfinder. I have taken out the film, and I can even fire the shutter, and the view finder is still black. I removed the lens and the issue is still there. Any help would...


is the mirror stuck in the up position? if so the rubber bumpers have become sticky. try to ( gently ) pull the mirror down it should fall freely, then clean the mirror with alcohol. you may have to remove the foam rubber bumper to prevent the mirror from sticking again. the mirror mechanism will work without the bumper just fine.

Lens are not coming out


Did you put the lens on up-side down? Don't laugh, it happens. If so, hold the lens lock button in (on camera body)and give the lens a quick counter clock wise twist. It should snap out.
If on correctly, turn lens clock wise while pushing in lock button,then with button still pushed in turn the lens counter clock-wise.

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.
