Samsung GX-10 manual lens question

I have a Samsung GX-10 that came with the 18-55m D-Xenon lens. I recently bought this lens (Phoenix 28-210mm):

Phoenix AS/IF 28mm-210mm F:4.2-6.5 Pentax AF | eBay

Just got the new 28-210 lens in the mail today. It fits my camera mount, but when I turn my camera on I get an error on the top-side display that says "F--" that blinks. I called Samsung support, they told me to update my firmware to 1.30, which I did. That still didn't work, then when I called back, the support person told me that only D-Xenon lenses work with these cameras. However, everything I've read online suggests that any lens that will work with a pentax k mount will work with this camera.

Is there a setting I need to change... any help would be much appreciated!

The lens will work, you just need to change a setting in your custom functions. See here for instructions:
