Pentax Extension Tubes

I have a Pentax 200D Camera and have bought na set of auto extension tubes. I realize they are manual focus however when I try to use them all I get in the viewfinder iis a flashing F>
I went to the local camera House and all he said was that there were no electrical contacts on the tubes, which of course is right. I am getting on in age so hope you can help
Thank you My Email address is pc

Welcome! For info on using manual lenses, including extension tubes, read the sticky thread at the top of the Beginner's forum.

Here is the link to using manual lenses on newer cameras.

Most important thing, well the first thing anyway, is to set "Allow aperture ring" to yes or on. Not sure where that is in the k200 menu. it is Custom menu 4 #27 on the k-5.
