Pentax K10D problem

Help! I just turned on my K10D and in the LCD panel it's flashing "F" I can't get it to go off and the camera is locked on aperture priority even though it is on the P setting. Can anyone help? The camera isn't even a year old yet
Thanks

There is probably nothing wrong with your camera.

Your camera "thinks" you have a manual lens mounted.
There are a few options:
1) Your lens is switched on manual mode; change it back to auto focus.
2) You did mount a manual lens. In that case turn on the option to allow for changing apperture in the options menu, then the F will disappear and the camera will ask for the lens its focal length if you have turned on SR
3) You have dirty lens AF contacts; clean them.
4) Something is broken in the camera; bring it in for repair under warrenty since it is still less than 1 year old.

Hope this helps.

Thanks all, I fixed it myself. My lens was not secured ll the way to the lock point. I guess I panicked before trying that
