NatD, The D50 and indeed most SLR digital cameras [ I have a D40 ] does not allow you to take pictures using the LCD display ... this is by design, you are meant to use the viewfinder and the image you see through it is straight through the lens via a mirror block [ called a reflex pentamirror or prism ]. When the mirror is down such that you can see the image in the viewfinder it is obscuring the sensor [ the bit that takes the picture ] and when you take a shot the mirror lifts and the picture is recorded. Its this reason that DSLR's dont use the LCD to shoot, however there are a few now available that do let you do this, such as olympus, new panasonic one and higher end Nikon and Canon cameras. Hope this explains it without getting too detailed!

To disable those blinking spots, just press the up or down cursor keys at the back of the camera while in playback mode. You will get three different views. One shows the EXIF data (Image data) as an over lay on your photograph. Press the button again to go to histogram mode, with graphs. Press it again to go to a mode where some image data is on the bottom of the display with no blinkies on the image.
Those blinking black spots are called highlights in a photograph. They indicate the areas where your photograph is over-exposed, i.e. where there is too much light and the colours are washed out. It can be a good tool to get a good exposure. Keep clicking with different settings till you get an exposure without those blinking spots.
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: NIKON D2H ERR FAULT
I had a D2H with a similar error. The camera started giving an 'ERR' message almost from new but from reading various posts from other users I assumed it was a 'known' idiosyncrasy of the D2H, the camera would create an underexposed first shot after turning on. A colleague has the same problem on his D2H, and there are numerous references to the same problem on the web. Your post points to a similar shutter issue. My shutter failed completely at around 65,000 actuations, well short of the advertised '150,000'. In addition, the horizontal Main Command Dial had also failed a short time before, and it had cost me £135GBP to have that repaired.
The problem is down to the shutter and unfortunately replacing the shutter costs £349GBP in the UK, quoted to me by the Nikon UK Service Department, in Kingston, in March 09.
As for Nikon repairing it under a 'goodwill' policy, you may have better luck than me if you live somewhere other than the UK. I told them to keep mine, as attempting to charge me for the repair was the last straw, it wasn’t worth me spending another £350 on a camera that hadn’t been reliable in the first place. I had been planning on getting a D3 in October/November but will now probably sell my Nikon gear and go over to Canon, as Nikon don’t seem too bothered about their professional user base, and I certainly won’t be paying £5,000 for a D3X.

If you are using the built-in flash and a telephoto lens, the end of the lens can block some of the light from the flash and that appears as a slightly rounded black "hump" at the bottom of your picture.
