Pentax K-m problems?

I was using my dslr yesterday, and then I went to take a picture of me and a friend and it didn't allow me to.
Normally the screen has the focus number and above a (1/180) figure but now it only has the focus number.
I took the lens of and the normal settings appeared and it allowed me to take a photo but when I put the lens back on, the same issue occurred.
Any ideas on what could be up?

Did your screen indicate F--? If so, try cleaning the contacts on the lens and the camera. Also, try putting the camera in manual focus mode and seeing it if will shoot.
