Having problems with your Nikon D70s Digital Camera ?

"Negative space" flashing on view finder

\015 I have read through my manual and still can not find the answer, I was hoping you could help me with it. I'm not sure what button might have gotten pushes, but when I try to view the pictures I have taken on the view finder the "negative spaces" seem to flash a grey color? Does this make sense? Have you seen this before or did someone mess up my camera?\015\012Any help you could give would be greatly appriciated.\015\012April Jones\015\[email protected]\015
