Pentax 77mm limited issue

Got a pentax 77mm limited from a Japanese seller through amazon. AF does not work. Asks for input of Focal length. Does this mean that the lens AF is broken? is there anything i need to check into before i confirm that the lens AF is broken. Please let me know

Is the aperture ring set to "A"?

Also try cleaning the contacts on the mount.

Yea I just missed one that sold for $550 in excellent condition in the PF marketplace. Most however are listed in the $700 dollar range so I'll be patiently waiting for the next great deal.
