problem with K2000 and FA35

I just got a FA35/2 lens.
And it does not work well on my pentax k2000 camera.

The problem is that the camera is back focusing with that lens.

What shall I do?
The camera is in 1-year warranty but the lens is from second-hand market.

Sorry to hear that.
So far I have no idea and haven't heard any method for lens adjustment on K2000.

Just to make sure, how did you do the test to determine BF ing?
Could you post the photo you took for the test?
That might help us to know the situation.

is it back focusing in manual focus or auto focus, Mine was fine in AF but with old manual lenses i had trouble focusing so I purchased a split image focusing screen then it back focused in manual, I added a shim (one of several supplied with screen) under the focus screen and now it's fine. The manual and auto focus are independent one can be good while the other is off. Also the in focused indicator when used on manual lenses uses the auto focus electronics and will give different results than the focusing screen. hope this helps
