K20D Focus Issue

I try and focus on a object about 10 feet in front of me and the red focus square the shows up in the viewer is just a 1 all the way to the left, so the camera only focuses on objects on the left side of the viewer. I went in and reset all my custom setting to factory and that didn't do anything.
Any Ideas?

Thanks
Jack

try clicking the right arrow and see if the red dot moves to the right
or elsewhere and see if it moves to that direction

You probably moved the 3-way AF dial (above the OK button) to SEL. That's so you select your own focus point by using the 4-way selector (I love shooting like that). If you like center point only, you can put it all the way to the right, otherwise, you can use the green auto on the left.

I know you got it back to normal, but if you don't know what you did it could happen again!
