Lens wont work

Recently purchsed Sigma zoom 28-80 macro lens wont work when mouted in my k100d but will work in my wife's k1100d.
Both camera bodies are the same model. Any suggestions as to why.
Thanks

It should work. Is the aperture ring not set to "A", or, if not, is the correct menu setting configured to allow non-A apertures?

Welcome here. What is it about the lens that doesn't work? Is it an autofocus lens, and if so, is it the autofocus that doesn't work on the 110D? Perhaps give us a photo of the lens for us to know how this lens should work. Thanks.

If they are both k100d and neither is a super or any other model... Clean the contacts on the lens and both bodies.

I have a K-x that I got for cheap. From time to time it refuses to autofocus. TO get its mojo back, I wipe down the contacts on the lens mount.
