How to set up sooting into RAW only

Does someone know, how to set up DSLR Pentax K-3 into mode, when pictures are saved only into RAW format, no Jpeg. I have tried all the options provided by the producer, either saving 1, paralelly 2 card or continously and always jpeg file were there. Can someone help me with the settings?
I do not need Jpegs any more.

Press the 'menu' button.
Go to the 'Rec Mode' menu (with the little camera icon).
Go to 1 - Image Capture Settings
Select File Format, then select 'RAW - DNG'

Hello to all,
an thanks for advice. unfortunatelly I do already have such a setting on my camera. And it still saves jpeg's alongwith raws. When export to hard drive is done I just delete all the jpeg files and work with raw format. I just wanted to know if there is option just to switch jpeg off.
Anyway thanks again.

Just select Image Capture Settings > File Format > RAW DNG.

If you choose DNG as your RAW file format, the 3 file format options you have are: JPG, RAW DNG, and RAW+DNG

RAW DNG will save 1 X DNG file.
RAW+DNG will produce 1 X DNG file plus 1 X JPEG file simultaneously.

RAW+DNG seems to be what you have selected. Don't use that.

Or PEF...

Page 37 in the manual gives you all the different options. A quick way to edit the settings are if you open the menu using the INFO button and in the lower left you have the options for the RAW/JPEG/card selection.
