OK, thanks – that is indeed a Vivitar TX lens with a removable TX mount for Minolta MD.

The mount has probably been fitted incorrectly, so the couplings don't line up properly. There's a helpful web site with free copies of the instructions for TX lenses and mounts here:

http://www.boggys.co.uk/page43.html

Basically what you need to do is remove the mount, align things properly inside, then re-attach it. Take a look at the instructions and see if they explain the procedure sufficiently. If not, let me know and I can write a step-by-step guide for you.

Hope this helps.
