HELP purple streaked lines on left side of pictures K20D

Help, I have purple streaked lines on the left side of a mojority of my pictures. I thought it was my SD card, so I tried 2 different ones and it is still happening. Camer is fairly new. Anyone have this problem and know what to do to get it fixed?

What camera/lens do you have? Can you post a picture of the problem?

I had similar problems couple of years ago with my K20D. I believe its a broken sensor you got. They replaced mine anyway.

Problem might be your sd card reader. Mine is defective on my laptop so now I use a reader that connects through a USB port. I was absolutely convinced it was the camera. Took forever to sort out the reader as the issue.

Please post an image showing the problem.
The purple lines may be sharply delineated (image writing/reading issue) or fuzzy and to one side (sensor issue probable).

The same way you did there should work here...


Camera is fairly new
If it's in guarantee take it back.
