Question about Ricoh KR-30SP 35mm SLR Camera
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.

Did you try changing the aperture? Depending on the lighting in the area, you may want to change this accordingly, if you put it in AUTO, and you're in a dark room the shutter might not open immediately.

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.

take the screws off the bottom cover. there is a small lever pointing toward the front of camera with a black screw on it. gently move it to the left, this will release the lock lever. Now advance the lever and the shutter should fire. if not, it is not repairable. no parts

There is a good chance you can repair this yourself. If you advance the film winder handle so that you can see the bottom of it there should be a screw visible. remove this screw to take off the plastic cover of the winder handle. The actual winder is metal and attached to the camera with a screw that can become loose. I believe the metal lever is keyed to only go on the winder shaft at the correct place. Reattach the metal winder arm and then place the plastic cover back on. One thing to watch is that the plastic cover has a small tab at the shaft end, so it needs to go on with a clamshell motion rather than straight down. My camera has the small tab broken off so I have a bit of hot glue holding on that end, which also acts to keep the shaft screw from moving.
