I have a Pentax K-X. When I turn it on, F--- continues to flash on the display no matter what I hit, I cant get past this issue. What am I doing wrong?

If you're using a lens with an aperture ring, make sure you set it to "A". If if doesn't have an "A" setting, you need to go into the menu, under custom settings and change item #22 "Using Aperture Ring" to "2-Permitted".
