Pentax K-x 50mm Prime Lens 1.7 Help!!!

Hello all,

Im hoping the solution to my issue is simple... I recently purchased a Pentax Kx and an addition lens. The asahi smc 50mm f1.7 Prime lens.

When I connect the lens and put it on movie mode, it reads "pressing the shutter release button while live view is on starts movie record function pentax kx" and no button that I press can change it.

In Photo mode, the F--- is blinking and it wont go into live view. Please Help!!!!!!!

Go to your menu, and enable the option that reads "Allow aperture ring setting other than 'A'".
