Pentax KX

I just purchased a KX with a 50mm f4 macro for $100. I bought it for the lens to use on my K10, but I really like this camera and the way it feels in my hands. One thing though! when I press the DOF button nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong? I can set the blue and black hands to get the right exposure, the battery meter works, but nothing happens when I press the DOF button.

With the lens off, look in at the lever at the front left side of the mirror box. Does it go up and down when you press the DOF button? If no, then it's broken. If yes, then,with the lens off the camera, see if the lens aperture isn't opening and closing when you turn the aperture ring.
