K10D's flash?

The problem always bothers me. I tried to ask the Pentax service, but in vain.

Device : k10D
firmware : 1.3

1. in manual exposure mode without flash popped up, both the aperture
and shutter speed can adjust by myself in according to the brightness
of the environment, and the green button works properly.

2. in manual exposure mode with flash popped up or the external flash
mounted, I can adjust the aperture and shutter speed, too. But, the
green button doesn't work. I have to dial the frontal wheel or the
rear one by myself.

3. in Av, Tv, or P mode, without flsh popped up, the aperture or
shutter can be adjusted by the device in according to the brightness
of the environment. In fact, the aperture changes by ways of change of
shutter speed, and vice versa.

4. The following issue is what I concern the most! While in Av, Tv, or
P mode with the flash popped up or the external flash mounted, The
shutter is ALWAYS set as 50/1 sec, even though I adjust the aperture
in the same circumstance with same brightness!! Besides, The shutter
is set as 50/1 sec even though in the different circumstance with the
same aperture.

Can anybody help me kindly? Many thanks!

Set your flash to slow speed sync. The regular mode will set the entire camera to the flash exposure only values.

Thanks! I'll try later.
But , the issue is that the P-TLL doesn't work and that leads to the slow speed sync mode of the external flash (Sigma DG 500 super) fails.
