I have had this happened to me a few times

I turn off the camera, remove the lens, put lens back on and turned on camera and problems solved

I just had this happen to me a few times today. I was at a beach with a battery grip on and every couple of minutes, the camera would freeze and a vertical line in the middle of LCD appeared with the left half darker than the right. On the right, a set of vertical lines appeared near the right bezel. I pulled the battery and it fixed it but it kept occurring every few minutes. I finally switched the camera battery out for the battery in the grip and the problem stopped. I guess I have a bad battery?

My K3 also have this problem when shooting in Live View. I have the grip on & both batteries fully charged - both are original Pentax batteries. Turn off both the camera & the grip but the Live view is still on. Remove the lens & the mirror is up. Have to remove both batteries then back to normal. If don't use Live view it won't happen. I can shoot till the grip battery went flat
