smc -fa lens work on kx

Good afternoon,

2 months into my KX and very happy apart from tyhe lost photos on the corrupted card.

I purchased a Pentax Lens SMC PENTAX - FA. It fits my KX is works through the viewfinder fine but the shuter button will not operate. Is it as simple as the lens just wont work.

On the screen when the lens is mounted on the camera the F--- on the screen flashes ?

Thank you in anticipation of any assistance.

go in the menu / the most right tab (setting number 22) / enable

-> this will allow you to use any lense that not have a A setting (like K / M / or your FA on a set aperture.)
