Question about Ricoh KR-5 SUPER II 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Ricoh KR-5 SUPER II Shutter will not activate.

1) Shutter button will not activate shutter.

2) Wind lever will not advance, therefore I am assuming shutter is cocked.

3) Self timer was activated but will not run to release shutter.

4) Additional: camera is in excellent condition and had been in storage for about 4-5 years. No batteries in the camera.

    It could be that the shutter is cocked but the mirror box is not. You can remove the bottom cover on one of these without fear of damage. There is a small lever on the wind side as you look at the bottom. You should be able to move this stop lever out of the way and try the advance lever. This is an attempt to rest the system.

    I bought a Ricoh kr-5 Super II that came with a few different lens I can get all of them to attach but one, Konica AR 80 200 F4 len. The only difference between this and the others is theres a little metal arm on all of them except this one has a little blake arm that doesnt move in the same place. My question is, are they compatable or is there a trick to attach this lens that different then the others?

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.

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.

Ricoh KS Super II 35mm SLR camera will not advance film and the shutter will not work. i love this camera and hate to throw it away. can i get it fixed somewhere and how much will it cost?


If the batterys are ok ,try rotating the speed control to X and the mirror will unlock from its upper position and the film will advance next time you try. Also the camera will not operate unless the leaver is moved away from its rest position, ie level with the camera body to its first movement area.

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.

I don't know how to open the camera to put my film in...


Press the shutter release button to ensure that the shutter is released, then pull up the film rewind knob until the back pops open.

If you need a manual, you can download a PDF one from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/ricoh.htm

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.

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.

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.
