Possible Sensor Issues?

I'll make a note to check out the Takumar lenses. It was indeed an issue of me having set the aperture ring to f/22. Being used to seeing a digital reminder on my old film Canon, I assumed that there would be something similar on the K01. On previous uses of my lens on the other camera I had just left it on f/2 and assumed that in M mode with old lenses it automatically shot wide open.
Thanks for the help guys! Hopefully I'll be able to make some more productive comments soon enough :D

Thanks for the advice on checking to make sure the aperture is actually opening, seems silly to not have checked that earlier.
I'm new to the K01 but not so much to photography in general. My understanding is that with these older Pentax lenses on the K01 the aperture normally automatically opens to full, and that you can't actually control the aperture setting. Am I mistaken in that assumption? It seems like you can only change the exposure time with the dial and that there isn't a way to check what f-stop you're shooting at.

I've been lurking on this forum for a while, getting to know as I can about Pentax.

Recently I've come across an issue with my K01. Any pictures that I take come out to be so dark as to be unrecognizable as anything other than a black screen. I'm using an older M mount 50mm lens. On the first K01 I owned (RMA'd due to a sensor problem) it took wonderful photos. Now to take well lit indoor pictures at 800 ISO I have to turn the exposure up to almost 2".
Does this sound like a sensor problem leading to seriously dark pictures? Has anybody run across the same problem?
