You turn the dial at the top from green/Auto to AV, TV, TA/V, M.... whichever you desire.

You may want to be more specific what your question is!
I'm going to assume you want to know how to properly set your aperture, ISO and shutterspeed without using the green mode. The best advice on this subject is to get the book "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson. Amazon has it, but your local Library may, too (mine does!). It will teach you everything you need to know to get out of green mode and take creative control of your picture taking. Sounds like an ad, but it's a brilliant book.

And if the problem is that you can't turn the mode dial (I think any model K5 and later), press the button in the center of it, turn the dial to the desired position and let the button in the center go again.
