Highlight is just the info mode, there are several info modes including Basic file info, Shooting Info and RGB histogram, just press the round controller in the up or down direction to change between them in playback mode. Highlight will flash black anywhere there is pure white in an image. Try resetting the camera by pressing the 2 buttons with green dots (on top of the camera near the shutter release) holding them for a few seconds.
It's a little plastic arm with a tiny hook that moves to allow the flash to pop up when you press the flash button on the front of the camera or select the built-in flash option. You may be able to get parts direct from Nikon or if you have a good local repair shop they may have a parts D80 to cannibalize for you if you have the skill to put it together. If you got the camera at a good price and don't really rely on the built-in flash, (one on the hot shoe is always better) then tape that puppy down with some electrical tape until the repair is done and shoot all you want, peel it back for the pop up when you need a fill in flash or you don't have the flash with you.
Hey mcgeedds, What you’re seeing is probably what is called digital noise. At low levels of light the sensor in the camera that records the image shares data from one pixel to the ones adjacent to it which causes digital noise. The way to fix this is either make sure your noise reduction setting is turned on, or get a powerful off camera flash that has the power and coverage capabilities to light the subject at the distance you are from your subject. Noise reduction on average should double your exposure time requiring you to use a tripod in most cases. Also pay attention to your iso setting if it is too high this can also cause digital noise in your images. I almost never shoot with a higher iso that 400. I hope this helps.
