Hi. I purchased my Nikon D40X back on Jan. 1st of this year. Everything has worked great until now. I was trying to take photos in auto mode this evening inside my house when the LCD began showing the pictures in a green tint - almost like looking thru night vision goggles. Then, after thinking the screen might just be going bad, I decided to upload the photos onto my computer and check them there. The pictures are still green on my PC as well. I did both resets, took the battery out and reinserted, took out the memory card (by Lexar) and reinserted, took lense off (nikkor 18-55) and reattached, etc. I've done everything I know to do. Any advice or help with this problem would be greatly appreciated as I'm leaving on vacation next week and now have no camera until this is resolved.

That's the way the D40x works. Nikon introduced the LiveView feature with the D3 and D300, introduced more than a year after the D40x. The D40x works the way SLRs have worked for half a century, giving you the viewfinder for framing and composing.
We tried the same lens on another Nikon (D90) and auto focus did not work.
We mounted a new set of lens on the original D40x, and it worked.
Turns out the 2 year Nikon lens (18mm-135mm) was bad. Nikon lens have a 5 year warrantee. The lens will be sent back to Nikon with no service or shipping charge.
forget about the cables. The ends tend to be filmsy, and the connectors can be suspect also. Get yourself an SD single card reader. They are direct plug-in to any USB slot (no drivers or software required), and only cost about $15 US.
It baffled me too, at first. What has happened is that the navigation dial has been (probably) accidently pressed, thus putting the display in "highlight" mode. When it is doing the blinky thing, press the down arrow to scroll thru the playback modes. A couple of presses and you'll be back to normal. This will show you the super light areas of an image, so it can be useful to avoid loss of detail in highlighted areas, but it sure looks wierd at first.
to turn this setting off just press the down arrow button when reviewing your photos. you will scroll through a number of ways to view tho photo including histogram, and one of the settings is just the picture.
