I have an 50mm 1.7 SMC Pentax-M (it is an Asahi if it makes any difference) that I have been using with my K-X.

I have followed all of the instructions to use this non-A lens and it functions as expected in most conditions. However, when using a small aperture in a low lit area, the max shutter speed will only be set by the camera at 1.6". I can use the e-dial to go beyond 1.6", but the camera won't automatically take me there. Any ideas?

I have followed all of the instructions on using non-A lenses. I have set the focal length correctly. I have tried both the exp. comp. button and green button to set the shutter speed.

The only other mention of this on the forum that I can find is in this somewhat unrelated post, but the suggested fix does not work:
