Teleconverter Won't Work

I have an old teleconverter that I used to use on my Pentax A3000 SLR, for many years.

Today I wanted to try it on my K2000 for the Oct 10 thing in the gallery, but couldn't get it to work, it keeps flashing the following on the screen.

(Sorry about poor quality. The only way I could take a picture of my K2000 was with my cell phone)

I have the lens I want to use (which works just fine on the K2000 by itself), in the auto position.

Any ideas?

You probably need to use M mode and set the aperture on the lens.

Just gave it a try, still flashes the F----.. I then tried adjusting the aperture on the lens itself, still won't get rid of the F----. The dial on the camera doesn't even work when flashing the F----.

You should check the menu to enable use of the aperature ring. A look through this thread might help you.

Unfortunately, my manual (and box!) was thrown out by certain family members, and no longer have that. I will read that, thanks..

EDIT: It worked, thank you so much!

You can download the K2000 manual in PDF format from the Pentax USA website: Manuals and Literature - Official PENTAX Imaging Web Site

I keep downloaded copies of all my Pentax manuals on my laptop so I have them when I'm traveling.
