Pentax K10D shake reduction switch broken

\015 I have a Pentax K10D and the shake reduction on off lever has broken off. How hard is it to replace? I wonder if it is worth repairing as it seems that I leave it turned on all the time for normal shots and it turms off automatically for self timere and bulb shots etc\015

Answers :

Hi,
Repairing the camera is little bit tough for a end user but it can be repaired in any service center as it is a Pentax k10D I will recommend you to keep this camera because this days getting a Japan made camera is as tough as getting water in desert.
It should also be turned off when the camera is on a tripod.

The power switch won't turn to Off from the Player position. There is a tiny green button that usually releases the switch so it will turn. This tiny green button seems to move in but I'm not sure if it's going in far enough. I suspect it is broken on the inside where it releases. I don't know if I can remove the switch knob by prying it up off the switch or if you can suggest a method of fixing this. I don't want to spend a whole lot of money on the camera (digital cameras look inviting), but I

Its not a heat issue. The Anti-shake goes off as soon as the shutter opens and closes in split second. This is most likely to be a shutter release mechanism related problem.
