Live view flashing

Live view on my K30 is flashing yellow and red. The yellow seems to be more periferal and the red shooting through image elements.. Flashes about twice per second.

That's the shadow/highlight alert feature, telling you that those parts of the image may end up being blown. It can be disabled via the live view menu.
