If you're saying that regardless of the lens you put on the camera you still get the F--, try cleaning the contacts on the camera lens mount as well as on your lenses. For some reason, according to your description, the camera is only seeing your lenses as M type lenses. Dirty contacts Could account for that (in the simplest case).
