02 standard zoom lens is not recognized

I have the following problem:
I got myself a Pentax Q with 02 Standard Zoom.
Unfortunately I only have the manual focus available.
When I go to the menu, the menu item is grayed focus method, so I can not select it to set it to AF, other menu items are grayed out.
When switching on the camera, I am prompted to enter a focal length, it seems to me as if the camera recognizes the lens at all.
In the Firmware Setup is the lens not listed, only the body.

I would take the lens off, clean the contact (gently), and reattach it to the camera. If that does not solve the problem then I would power down, take the battery out, charge the battery to full, and restart everything. If the lens is still not recognized I'd go to Reset - Top Item in the 3rd Wrench Menu - and reset everything and go through the first two above again.

Good Luck.
