Default AF Switch on Pentax ist DS stuck!

Hello Everyone!


The AF Switch on one of our Pentax ist DS cameras is stuck.

The AF Switch is stuck in the MF position.

But . . . the camera still tries to auto focus with an AF lens.

And the switch is stuck. We can't move it back to the AF position.

What do we do?

Has anyone come across this before?

My daughter was using this camera for her photography course. I've given her my Pentax ist DS to keep going. But it would be nice to get this camera back up and running as it's actually in much better shape than my Pentax ist DS.

Any help greatly appreciated.
Take care & Happy Shooting!

NOTE: I'm trying to capture the picture in my head! Not the one my camera sees!
