You're seeing blown-out highlights. Those are the areas of your pictures that have lost all detail by going pure white. In general this is considered a bad thing. The correct fix is to reduce the exposure to bring back the details. This may lose details in the shadows, but that is generally preferrable to losing details in the highlights. After all, we expect not to be able to see things in the dark. Of course, this is only a warning; the camera doesn't know what kind of effects you're trying for.

That was the long answer. The short answer is: press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through the different views of your picture.

Hello i take a pic but the white section flashes black nikon d60


I'm going to assume you're talking about the picture review on the back display. If I'm wrong, please please let me know.

You're seeing the highlights. Those are the areas of the picture that are overexposed and thus have lost all detail. That's not necessarily an error, though often it is. The proper solution is to reduce the exposure and shoot again.

The quick solution is to press Up or Down on the multiselector while viewing the picture to change your view of the picture. The camera provides several different views, including Highlights, Histogram, and several screens of Image Data.

I have D80, in my display when viewing photo's any white colors are flashing from black to white. Any solutions?


You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are areas where you've irrevocably lost data due to overexposure. If too much of the picture is blown out, you may want to reduce exposure some and shoot again to preserve the data.

You can press up or down on the multiselector to change your view. The camera provides several different views of your images, including data, histogram, and, as you've discovered, highlights.

Black flashing in bright areas of image when viewing


This is a tool to tell you where your photo is under or overexposed. If you use the up/down button to scroll through the display options (file info, shutter speed, filename...etc) will take you to the view where the highlights are shadowed or whited out. One of the views has no data or highlighting. Just leave the view there.

Flashing in a certain area on my screen


You're looking at the blown-out highlights. These are areas where you've lost all detail. Press up/down on the multiselector to change the view. Better yet, reduce the exposure to reduce/eliminate them.
