Asahi Takumar lens wont work on gh1

Hi all

I just bought a Gh1 and had a couple of my dads old Asahi Takumar Lensfrom his old pentex that i was hoping to fit on it. I bought this adapter M42 To G1 GH1 E-P1 GF1 Micro 4/3 m4/3 adapter on eBay (end time 02-Dec-10 10:45:16 GMT)

Now when i turn the camera on first it says "please check that the lens is attaches correctly" when i hit the q.menu button the lens works until i hit record and other buttons then i get the same message.

i reckon its the adapter?

It will only do this if you have the MODE DIAL on INTELLIGENT AUTO MODE or the red camera icon on the mode dial selector. It will work with any other mode.
