Flashing red F _ _

Hi .... I am trying to record a movie on my Pentax K50. I did a test one but when I went back to record the real one I found I had a red F _ _ flashing at the bottom of the screen. I don't know what this means and I can't find it under trouble shooting. Can anyone help?

It usually means the lens isn't on properly, or the contacts are dirty.

Make sure your aperture ring is set to "A". If there is no aperture ring then see post #2.
