yellow tint or halo when using flash

My K-x is only a couple of months old and lately I've been getting a yellow tint to the entire picture or a yellow shadow when using the camera flash indoors. It's intermittent & random. Not on every shot, but it can be on 5 in a row, then a good one then another yellow one etc. I really hope it's just a setting or something simple/stupid. I really don't want to have to send my camera away for service. Any advice?

If you're using any kind of filter when this happens, take it off and test.

Can be "ghost," if shutter speed is too low. As Wheatfield stated, photos with EXIF data can help with diagnostic.

Try X shutter speed (or 1/180 sec).

I would say that Elvis has left the building.
