I don't think the problem is contact or no contact, but intermittent contact which is happening when you start turning the focusing ring -- if it changes state from one to the other it will switch off LV.
I guess it depends then on whether the OP's lens ever touches the data contact and the mount face with a conductive surface. Here is the link to the Rio Rico solution:

ANNOUNCING: Easy cheap non-destructive Exakta-Pentax adapter

The CZJ Tessar Rio Rico converted probably never did.
