Only thing I can suggest is to do a Reset from the custom menu (last setting).

Sorry foot in mouth time. I should read and re read the post before reply. Didn't mean to insult you photo taking skills.

This line looks quite similar to K-7 "green line" problem, eg. I had such line (purple) on my first K-7. Eventualy, Pentax replaced my camera with a new one, as they concluded it had faulty sensor. But, some of users with that problem succeded to fix it with new K-7 firmware. I don't know about K20d, maybe you could try to upgrade to new K20d firmware to see if it helps. I hope it can be fixed without sending camera to service.

No, it tid`nt help, i mean uppgrade, and this is probably hardware (sensor) problem.
Service guys ordered today a new sensor from JP, now they examinate my warranty card, because, Kamera is bought from Tokyo, and I m not sure does this Warranty apply to here, Estonia and if not than this repair gonna cost me araund 385
So thats the story now

I have the exact same problem with my K20D, but the line is blue, not purple. It's showing up on all images in about the same location as Mr. Raud's issue. Formatted the card, tried different modes to no avail. If it matters, I am using a Pentax 18-55mm lens.
