Takumar on a K10D

I have a K10D and have been using several of my Super-Takumar lenses with it. I have an authentic Pentax adaptor that just snaps into place with a short turn. Turn on the camera and on the screen is asks for the focal length. Scroll through until I get the correct number, enter it and start shooting. It works great. However, recently that screen asking for the focal length does not come up and now when I shoot the focus indicator doesn’t work. It’s as if there is no electrical contact. Has anyone had this problem?

I just won a couple more Taks on Ebay and would hate to not be able to use them properly on my camera.

Check to make sure of the settings:

- AF-S (focus indicator)
- SR on (camera asking for the focal length).

If all else fails you can always go to the bottom of the first menu tab and select SR from there. Annoying but better than nothing? I think it's more likely that the SR button is not checked though.
