Problems with mirror lens on flashing F--

When I put a Sigma mirror lens (as well as some old Pentax ext tubes) on the K-01, the cam wont work. All I get is a flashing red F-- at the bottom and shutter wont release.

I tried to look it up in the book but could not find anything in the index. (I didn't read the whole book. ) Can I use my mirror lens with the K-01 or am I out of luck?

My guess is you need to go into the custom menu and set Using Aperture Ring to Enable.

Either that or short the pins to make the body think it is an "A" lens.
