K&F CY NEX adapter: problem

I have a NEX-5 Sony camera. And I also have 3 (old but nice) Zeiss lenses with Y/C mount, from a former film camera. I wanted to use the old lenses on my NEX 5.

I knew that I would need to go manual, but that's OK for me, it's part of the fun, in a way....

I bought this adapter:

K&F Concept Contax Yashica CY Sony NEX Alpha E-Mount

It fits nicely. The problem is that the camera would refuse to shoot: "lens not recognized, please place it properly....".

I tried with manual settings, but this is the result.

Anyone out there could give me a suggestion before I am forced to return the adapter?

Thanks

Maurizio

Sony Alpha NEX-5
