Focus toggle snapped off on K10

Hi all

The toggle that switches between Single Focus, Continuous Focus and Manual has snapped at the very base of the toggle. Don't even know where the toggle is, just looked down and it wasn't there. It's stuck in Condinuous Focus mode. Am I screwed? Is there any other way of changing this through the software?

Man that sucks, that toggle is the only way to change your focusing modes.
You can, however, either use the AF button to focus and turn off the "half press focus" of the shutter button, or set the AF button to disable focusing.
Now unless your AF lenses have quick shift, you may need to hold down the AF screw with some tape in order to manually focus.
Hope this helps.
