On power residue symbol

I computed sum of power residue symbol in N th cyclotomic field:

def new_residue_symbol(a,P,N):
    if a not in P:
        return K(a).residue_symbol(P,N)
        return 0
P =(K.ideal(p).factor())[0][0]#P is prime ideal above p
sum(new_residue_symbol(a,P,N) for a in P.residue_field())

This must be $0$ but sage put error typeerror: unable to convert 0 to Cyclotomic Field of order 3 and degree 2. How can I fix this? (When you change $p=7$, then sage put $0$. This might be lifting problem of representatives of residue field )

UPDATED. Per clarifications from DaveWitteMorris the code should use not a.is_zero() instead of a not in P, and a.parent().lift_map()(a) instead of K(a):

def new_residue_symbol(a,P,N):
    Ka = a.parent().lift_map()(a)
    return Ka.residue_symbol(P,N) if not a.is_zero() else 0

I reported (there), but that’s not a bug.

I see.. You can post a corrected code here as an answer to your own question, to save it for future references. I'll then remove mine.

If you don’t mind, you can edit your answer with some description. Your answer will be better than mine :).
