K100D Super + Helios lens = doesn't focus properly

so i have K100D Super and a Helios M42 lens 44M. and an adapter ring as well,it fits. the problem is that it doesn't focus after 10m - just blur. can this problem be fixed? cause when i use this lens on my Zenit it focuses perfectly - even after 10m distance.

If your adapter looks like the one above, you'll need an adapter without the protruding ~1mm flange, such as this one:
