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.

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

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

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.

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.
