Why is this ? It happens on photographs taken AND also shows up in the
LED Display at the rear of the Camera.
Can this be fixed ? Would it require a new LED screen ?
I have heard that this is a common fault which develops. The camera is about
fifteen years old and recently purchased second hand but the Seller never disclosed this fault.

Re: My Nikon D50 DSLR Camera images show up pink.
Try the White Balance settings. There are 59 references in the manual. Open the link, Press CTRL+F and type ' white balance ' and scroll through. If that doesn't fix it, it will need service. My guess is that they would replace the image sensor. The display only shows what the sensor shows it.

This happens during malfunction of mirror and shutter.that is when cliked shutter opens but mirror did not go up so blank monitor screen hence no image in card. Take to skilled technician to replace shutter loader mechanism.
Possible failure of the display unit of the camera is the picture taken is sowing good image after downloading on the PC.
If so the panel must be taken out and checked for voltage on the pad, the flexible strip that connects the display also can be faulty.
You will need to have some experience to open and probe into the display unit.
You don't. The D40 works as SLRs have worked for half a century. Only more recent dSLRs (Nikon started with the D3 and D300) have the LiveView capability that lets you handle your dSLR as a point&shoot.
R12 is not an error message, it is a normal message, in fact telling you that the camera has a 12 photo bufffer that stores the pictures as they are written to the memory card.
What is most likely happening is that the camera is not able to write to the SD card.
Are you using a genuine, non counterfeit memory card? There are a lot of them about,- especially from vendors on the internet selling them for 'too good to be true' prices.
hi.. 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.
Do the pics show when you press the playback button? Does the menu display? If the display works, then check the menus to see whether image review got turned off. If the display doesn't work, it needs to be repaired/replaced.
To disable those blinking spots, just press the up or down cursor keys at the back of the camera while in playback mode. You will get three different views. One shows the EXIF data (Image data) as an over lay on your photograph. Press the button again to go to histogram mode, with graphs. Press it again to go to a mode where some image data is on the bottom of the display with no blinkies on the image.
Those blinking black spots are called highlights in a photograph. They indicate the areas where your photograph is over-exposed, i.e. where there is too much light and the colours are washed out. It can be a good tool to get a good exposure. Keep clicking with different settings till you get an exposure without those blinking spots.
NatD, The D50 and indeed most SLR digital cameras [ I have a D40 ] does not allow you to take pictures using the LCD display ... this is by design, you are meant to use the viewfinder and the image you see through it is straight through the lens via a mirror block [ called a reflex pentamirror or prism ]. When the mirror is down such that you can see the image in the viewfinder it is obscuring the sensor [ the bit that takes the picture ] and when you take a shot the mirror lifts and the picture is recorded. Its this reason that DSLR's dont use the LCD to shoot, however there are a few now available that do let you do this, such as olympus, new panasonic one and higher end Nikon and Canon cameras. Hope this explains it without getting too detailed!
