Mechanical auto teleconverter and K100d

Hi

Please excuse my ignorance .

I have a K100d , and trying to use a mechanical teleconverter .

Am I wasting my time , as I can't get the camera to work ?

The screen shows a flashing AV , and a flashing F inside the viewfinder .

I've tried the M setting , but that gets nowhere

Regards

Alexk

You have to treat non-A teleconverters as manual lenses. Follow these steps to meter & shoot:
