Not able to shoot when viewing through view finder

Hi,

I recently bought Pentax HD DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED WR 55-300mm Zoom Lens for Pentax KAF Cameras and started using it. After a few shots I noticed that none of the other lenses 18-55 and 50-200 not able to shoot photos when I compose photo using View Finder. The same photo can be shoot when i view through lcd view.

Tried dust removal but no luck.

Are you not able to get a shot because the camera doesn't confirm focus?

The focus locks properly but the image is not captured. Everything is very dark ..

I tried to reset the camera to factory setting but no success.

What if you're in M-mode and on manual focus? (That would help eliminate settings and focus issues as the cause of the problem.) And what camera are you using?

I am using Pentax K50 . I tried manual mode as well but same result.

Not sure what triggered it but all was good before I started using 55-300 new lens.
