K10 Help Needed - Manual Focus Problem

When the Focus mode lever is on MF when the Shutter release button is pushed the lens focus motor is turning as if it were trying to focus, although the lens is not moving. This occurs on all lens I have. Ive tried to resetting the camera however the motor is still turning when pushing down half way. The pictures are fine as it's not actually turning the lens. Is this normal? Its like mechanically - the motor is not engaged with the lens- but the computer thinks it should try to focus and is spinning. This is a brand new camera any thoughts?

Just tried on my K10D with DA16-45 attached. All I get is the focus spot and in focus indication
