Help! AF switch stuck on ist DS.

Hello everyone!


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

The switch is in the MF position. (Not the AF position.)

But the lens still tries to autofocus, even though the switch is in the MF position.

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

What do we do?

Has anyone come across this?

It's my daughter's Pentax ist DS that she has been using for a high school photography class.

I've given her my Pentax ist DS to keep going, but it would be nice to get this Pentax ist DS working again, as it's in much better shape than mine (except now for this switch.)

Any help greatly appreciated.

Take care & Happy Shooting!
