Problem with k20d and old k mount HELP!

Hey all, I have recently purchased a takumar 135mm f2.5 bayonet lens for my k20d and I cannot make it work. Using manual setting the 'F--' just flashes. I have used alot of different m42 lenses with the pentax adapter on this body and my k100d in the past and haven't had a problem. I have no idea what the problem is here as the lens seems to be functioning normally. Any ideas??
