are you on manual or auto? if manual sounds silly but your shutter length is too short/ aperture too small (big number) if auto, do you have flash turned on? if all the above obvious to you... the light sensor on the front might be broke so your cam is picking wrong settings
there is no problem with your cam for sure.
you must have changed the setting of the cam
adjust the shutterspeed and the aparture. and your problem will be solved... or
dont keep the cam on manual mode.. keep it on automatic settings and it should work.

This is probably not the camera settings. Pentax k200D wilt only give auto-flash with just three of their own units. Sounds like you have the Bower set on Auto. Set the flash to Manual, and adjust exposure on the aperture setting with the body set to manual as well. Note that several people have reported problems with Bower units on digital cameras (and not just on Pentax)
Low light focus lock can be a problem with this camera. But in normal or bright light there should be no problem with auto focus lock.
If this is a new problem, you should check to see if a setting has been changed.
With so many options, it is easy to accidently set something that causes unusual results (been there, done that).
First ... Go to the Setup Menu and see that the "All Reset" option is selected. This will cause everything to be reset to factory default each time you power-on the camera.
Turn the camera off and then turn the camera on. Then take some test photos to see if your auto-focus-lock is improved.
If that works, there is no need to check the items below.
If that does not work, here are some control changes to try. Remember if you turn off the camera everything gets reset.
That camera uses contrast detection for auto focus and it is normally set to "Multi-Area Auto Focus". Try changing it to "Spot Auto Focus" and do some tests, including with the camera set to one of the programs or manual mode.
There is another setting called "Autofocus Area", you should investigate. Check your manual to determine what you can do with this control.
There is another control called something like "continuous auto focus". Check the manual for further information.
If none of the above help, it is time to see about some camera repairs.
