Why? The K-30 doesn't have a TTL sensor, it has P-TTL...

The flash will still work in Red or Green auto mode.

Set the flash to the red or green auto modes. Red is what I used 99% of the time. If your subject is close, use the green to save on batteries.

In program mode the flash will set the aperture and shutter speed. If you want to use AV, set the slider on the back to the ISO you are using. The follow the red or green line (pick the line to the auto mode you selected) and use the aperture it tells you. So in red auto for ISO 200, your aperture will be set to f5.6, for ISO 400 your aperture will be set to f8.

The flash will set your shutter speed for you in AV mode

Pure luck.

Don't count on it next time.
