K10d, broken AE-L button


I'm not really luck with my camera kit. I managed to broke the AE-L button in the upper right corner. The thing is that it's constantly switching on and off which is very frustrating. I don't know if i can turn it off with the software or if there's any good alternative solution beside spending 200€ for the repair. I appreciate any help i can get!

My K20 (which is probably identical to the K10 in this respect) sometimes likes to imagine someone is pushing that button too. When it does that I push the button hard and twist my finger (possibly rotating the button, but it's hard to tell), and then it's ok again for a week or two.
