I gave up pretty quickly when even the store couldn't figure it out, and it has been sent in to Pentax for evaluation and repair. The problem was usually limited to f8 and above.
Welcome to the Pentax Forums!

Let us know how things are when it gets back.

FWIW, this is sort of an old thread (2015) and the OP's issue (over-exposure on both K-5 and K-3) was never fully resolved. The results of your camera's service visit may provide a clue. I might also note that the most common cause would be lazy aperture on the lens not stopping down fully for exposure.
