This screen shows areas of the photo that are overexposed slightly.
It flashes them to help you.
You get to this screen by pressing the up or down arrows when displaying the pictures you have taken.

To change it just press the up arrow when the camera is showing the screen until you get a display without flashing.

Once you have done this the display will be steady.
If you get any other screen in future you may have accidently pressed the arrow again.
Just cycle thru the displays to get back to steady.

When in playback mode, black patches flash on the screen, only in white areas. Actual pictures are not affected once uploaded and printed but its a very annoying problem! Nikon D50

You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that have been so overexposed that they've gone pure white, losing all details. This is generally considered a bad thing, but as the camera doesn't know whether you're deliberately going for that effect, it's merely warning you. The proper fix is to reduce exposure (the easiest way is by using exposure compensation) so as to bring back the lost details. This runs the risk of losing details in the shadows as they go pure black, but this generally isn't as bad as losing details in the highlights. We don't expect to see things in the dark, after all.

That was the long answer. The short answer is to repeatedly press up/down on the multiselector to choose a different view of your picture.

When I take a picture,then look at the LCD screen,all the white areas flash black then white. If I download the pictures everything is fine. Is something set wrong? Also for no reason the flash stopped...

The blinking indicates blown-out highlights. Those are the areas of your pictures that have been overexposed into pure white. This is generally considered a bad thing, and the correct fix in most cases is to reduce the exposure to bring back details. Losing details in the shadows is generally more acceptable. But this is just a warning: the camera doesn't know what effect you're trying for.

While viewing a picture, pressing up/down on the multiselector cycles through the different available views of the picture.

When viewing pictures on camera why are the white areas of pictures blinking

Hello,

If this is the same as my Nikon this is the overexposed highlight display option.
This shows areas of the photograph that are overexposed slightly.

On my Nikon I use the up and down arrows on the back to cycle the LCD display options.
Stop when you get a display that does not flash.

Taking a black and white photo.

You can't, there is no black and white mode on the D50. You will need to take color photos and convert them with photo editing tool.

When I view my photographs on my Nikon D50 the white on the photograph pulsates with black where the white areas are on the picture. The photographs itself is perfect but this is annoying. Can you help...

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.

Exposure

check exposure compensation settings.
if no value being added/deducted, then the battery would be next, then check for flash setting deviations.
also, check for white balance settings indoors and make sure to use either auto white balance, or select the type of light you have, such as floro's or incandescent.
otherwise, time for service. could also try with different lens.

Lec screen flashing black areas when pictures are played back

Flashig areas show HIGH KEY or HIGHLIGHTS in image, these areas indicate where exposure compensation can be made. They also change to normal function on first magnification point.

Check the manual on highlights also good reading in the histogram section and you will start to understand about contrast and exposure.
Have FUN.
