K-20d Flashing red leds?

When I turn the camera on the red led on front and back flash for what seems a long time . (perhaps a couple of minutes) I use back button focusing.
Any HELP will be appreciated.

It sounds like you have the remote activated. Go to FN, then the up arrow, and you'll see the different options.

Yup, you're in the remote control drive mode. Set it back to single shot and the flashing will stop.
