Re: LCD screen flashes
There is nothing wrong with your camera - It is doing what it is meant to do!
The purpose of the flashing areas is to drawn your attention to parts of the image that are over-exposed. In an ideal world nothing would ever be overexposed, but if the image has both very dark and very bright areas, the camera cannot capture both - something has to give! The flashing areas are just to let you know.

Red-eye is caused by the light from the flash reflecting from the back of the eye. There are several ways to eliminate or at least reduce the effect. One, as you've done, is to edit the photo after it's been taken. The red-eye reduction feature of the camera shines a light at the subject, causing the pupils to contract and thus reduce the reflection from the eyes.
A good way is to move the flash away from the camera. This causes the red reflection to go toward the flash, not the camera. Unfortunately, the D40x lacks the Commander mode to control remote flashes. Instead, you can use something like the SC-29 cord to move the flash away from the camera.
Another possibility to consider is to not use the flash at all. Bump up the ISO and see whether there's enough light for existing-light photography.
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.
This is normal. Look at page 53 of your user's manual. There, it shows in the illustration, the figure of a woman with a highlight on her forehead (#2). These flashing patches will occur anytime there are highlights in the image area. These indicate an over-saturation of light on the CCD. Usually, when you view the image on your computer, the image will look normal. You may have to manipulate the image with Photoshop when you make a print. Hope this helps.
