Kent and Adam, thanks but i actually tried those things before i posted and it was still a no go, it's like it's stuck on shutterspeed, it will not even highlight the fstop when i try any of the suggestions .


But, Thanks anyway! really appreciate y'all taking the time to try helping!

Ira and Matt, I'm using the Pentax DA L 18-55mm and DA L 50-200mm,
the lens manual says the aperture settings are controlled automatically
If you're using the two kit lenses and when you turn the mode dial from Av to M and the BIG M appears in the LCD and you press the AV button (marked +/- ) and it doesn't toggle between shutterspeed and aperture... Then your AV button (marked +/- ) is broken... You need to send that badboy back...

The DA lenses don't have an aperture ring

Oh, that's exactly what's going on...i was afraid of that just wanted to make sure i tried everything possible rather than assuming it was broken since i'm new to this type of camera and all.

Well I'd like to thank all of you for your time and help!
