k-5 and YN-560iii wireless flash advice needed.

Just purchased a Yn-560iii Speedlite and looking for a bit of information, I've got the flash working in S1 and S2 mode and I'm very happy with the results, however when trying to set up for wireless i can't seem to be able to get it to work, i thought as there is a wireless mode on my K5 it may have worked, I've changed the channel on the flashgun put it in the hotshot and turned camera on with no guide from camera as to what channel the its on. Cant even find what frequency the k5 is on.
Am i barking up the wrong tree and they operate on totally different frequencies, or does the K5 wireless only work with Pentax Flashguns, Just i don't want to go and buy transmitters/receivers if i don't have to.

Yeah I'm just starting out and loving every minute of it, but always frustrating after a couple of months of research on which camera to buy for a new model to be released just weeks after a major purchase. Loving the K5, slowly getting to grips with it :)

I spoke with a rep from Pentax and he informed me that there is some issue through the K range with this happening, He had a look at the camera and there was no mention of it being reconditioned so think it was new, regardless i still want a K5 :-)

Thanks i tried the reset and the custom reset to no avail, so i'll try taking the battery out charging it putting it back in the reset again see if that makes any difference. Thanks for the replies keep you updated.

Need some advice regarding my new Pentax K5 with DA 18-135mm WR lens, i have only purchased this camera(10/7/2013) after months of deliberation and research in which i narrowed it down to the K5 :-), Any how i seem to be having issues with the selection of capture modes, i purchased through a retailer on amazon and phoned them for some advice, i don't think they where taking on board what i was saying and eventually told me to contact Pentax directly in which i have had no response yet, the retailer was saying i had mucked up the settings and the camera was stuck on bulb mode, i don't think this is the case and want some more opinions and advice. When switching on the camera and moving the capture mode to P the display shows X, Sv shows Bulb,Tv shows M, Av shows M, TAv shows M, M gives me M, B gives me Bulb,X gives me X, User gives me User, Green Mode shows User. Does this look like a setting fault or camera fault as i feel as if i have not got 5 out of 11 capture mode settings. Please Help as if its a camera fault i want to return it as soon as possible.
