K200D blocked in autofocus mode

Hi all,
I accidentally dropped my k200D. The camera is now blocked in autofocus mode eventhough I switch the autofocus - manual mode button. This is pretty annoying because I cannot take pictures anymore in low light, for instance, since the camera cannot make the focus.
Is there a way to deactivate the autofocus mode ?

Ouch - not good. Can you remove the lens? Set the menu to the OK button for auto focus. If you can remove the lens, then you can hold down the button that you push to remove the lens while manually focusing. Then take the shot. To use auto focus, just push the OK button. There may be another way, but that is what I thought of.
