K200D focus spot

A friend has a K200D the same as mine. He uses an 18-250?mm sigma lens and also a 10-20 sigma wide angle lens.
He is finding that the focusing of the camera seems to always favour the lower left side. He resets it to the centre spot which is where he prefers it, and after a while it reverts to this area of focusing. Very annoying as he uses the camera for real estate photography.

Any ideas??

When you say that the focus goes to the lower left, do you mean the focus indicator lights up in the viewfinder in the lower left, or the lower left is in focus and the rest of the image is not in focus?

What Auto Focus Point selection is it set to? If it is is 11-point, then it could just be accidental pushing of the navigation buttons while operating the camera.

Why not set it to "Menu" -> "Select AF Point" -> "Center" only. Then it will always focus on the center point.
