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
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.
The KR-5 Super II is totally reliant on batteries in order to function. Use two SR-44 cells fitted with the + side towards the cover. LR-44's also work but will give slightly inaccurate meter readings. If you use slide film then avoid using LR-44's but if you use print film it's not really a problem.
The flash is just any standard, non-dedicated, automatic or manual flashgun. There are millions of them around, perfectly good and unused, so there's no need to pay for one. Just ask on your local FreeCycle or Freegle groups.

push the film release on the bottom of the camera and try to continue forward then. If you are trying to get 27 pictures on a 24 exp. roll you may have advanced your film so far that it is stuck on the piece of tape that attaches the film to the spool. Take only 24 pictures.
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.
