The lenses are probably manual focus lenses,

SOURCE: I BOUGHT A PENTAX K10D
I don't own a K10D, but I do own a K100D which I have successfully used both manual focus & auto-focus lenses from my old Pentax stash!
1) If it is a manual focus lens, you need to turn off Autofocus on the body of your K10D. On my K100D, there is a switch on the side of the lens mount that says [-MF or -AF]. "-MF" is manual focus mode & "-AF" is autofocus mode. Since your lens doesn't have autofocus capability, turn it to the "-MF" mode.
Also . . . When I press "Menu" and go to "Custom Setting", I change two settings . . .
1) I change "Using aperture ring" to "Permitted". This allows you to use manual lenses (M lenses) that do not have an auto(exposure) setting, and also lets you use Auto lenses (A, KA, KA2, FA, etc.) in either the Auto or manual aperture setting modes.
2) I change "Fl with S lens used" so that even with a manual focus lens, although I don't have autofocus capability, my K100D beeps and shows a little red square in the viewfinder when I have successfully focused manually!
The K10D should have the same options.
This should get you up and running!
I have had a load of fun with my old lens on my new digital Pentax!
Take care & Happy Imaging!

Clean the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they connect with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

This is usually a memroy issue. When a digital camera snaps a photo, it saves it to a buffer until it can write it to the memory card.
Try a different memory card. If this does not fix your issue then unfortunately the issue is with the buffer memory. This might be fixed with a firmware wipe but it might also need expert repair.
