K-01 exposure meter sometimes there, sometimes not

Hey guys, recently picked up a K-01 and I have a question that maybe some others can help me out with. When I shoot in manual mode with an m42 adaptor and lens, the -3/+3 exposure meter is displayed on the screen. When I put a M lens on and shoot, there's nothing displayed at all. I've tried a few M lenses as well and nothing shown for any of them. Could someone explain this to me why it would show a meter for one lens type but not another? I appreciate it

Try pressing the +/- button?
Or, info once (so you see a menu) and then info one more time (which gives you the information display choices). Now choose the leftmost one.

Hey I've tried all of those and nothing has shown up. I'll have to do some digging and see what it could be. Thanks for replying
