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

2 Answers

I have a problem with my Ricoh Kr10 Super?

It seems the shutter is stuck in the up position. When I put batteries in it and switch off the shutter lock nothing happens. How can I find a diagram to dissemble it? Also what may be the problem?

I think you are referring to the mirror being in the up position. Can you advance the camera normally and just not able to see though the viewfinder?

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.

Are there any digital cameras on the market that will allow me to make use of my existing ricoh k mount 35 mm camera lenses? (originally used on a Ricoh KR10


Some pentax digitals(most) will accept k mount lenses. Ricoh differed from the Pentax standard in one slight -- but important -- way. They used a locking pin (called the "Ricoh pin") that just happens to fall at exactly the same place as the auto-focus socket on Pentax auto-focus cameras. (That include Pentax film and digital SLRs with auto focus.) If you put your Ricoh lens on the AF Pentax, you may find that the Ricoh pin will get stuck in the AF hole and you can't get them back apart. The fix is simple, if you are even a little bit handy and have a jewellers' screwdriver. You can remove the pin from the Ricoh lens, and then safely use it on your Pentax cameras. The lack of a pin doesn't seem to adversely affect either the lens or the camera.

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.

Shutter broken


You have a cheap Chinese copy of a Ricoh KR10-Super.

Assuming the shutter is actually broken (you didn't give details of symptoms) you cannot get spares for either of them. Throw it away (keep the lens) and buy any other Pentax K-Mount 35mm SLR camera, they're virtually worthless these days (except for the all-manual Pentax K-1000 and a few high-end models).

The near-worthless resale values means that you can pick them up from your local FreeCycle (also Freegle in the UK only) groups for nothing.

Pentax, Cosina, Ricoh, Chinon are the main brand names for K-Mount SLR's, but if you have a choice go for Pentax first, Ricoh second and only take the others if they're free as they're worth even less than a set of new batteries.

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.

The shutter on my canon a-1 seems to be stuck. After I wind up the film, nothing happens after I press the shutter button. I opened the bottom of the camera up and pressed the L-shaped lever and magnet to...


If you opened the bottom you saw the magnet that holds the shutter /mirror mechanism closed- sometimes it and the lever it holds get dirt or corrosion on them and won't hold the lever when you **** the shutter? it can also be the battery is not dead, but not enough voltage to supply enough power to hold lever.
