Pentax K-r issues will not take a picture.

My Pentax K-r has not been working right. Sometimes it works fine and other times it will not take a picture. Now when I turn it on it says it can not start live view. When I hit the info button the ISO is 400 and blinking then F -- is also blinking. Please help!!!

Try removing your lens, cleaning the contacts, and putting it back on again. Sounds like the camera isn't detecting the lens.
