Having problems with your Nikon Digital Cameras ?

My nikon d3000 has suddenly started flashing, the White parts of the photo only, can you help?

Answers :

You're seeing blown-out highlights. Those are the portions of your photos which have been overexposed so much that all details have been lost and gone pure white. Of course, the camera doesn't know whether you were going for that effect and the blinking is only a warning. Blown-out highlights are generally considered a bad thing, and the correct remedy is to reduce exposure to bring up the details. This risks losing details in the dark areas and the shadows, but this is not considered as bad. After all, we don't expect to see things in the dark.

That was the long answer. The short answer is, repeatedly press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through the different views of your photo until you find one you like.
K_akima is correct, but to make this feature go away, scroll up or downwards until you return to regular viewing of photos...
