Highlighting low/high lights - please make it go away...

I've had my k-01 for a while now - starting to like it a little more with use. However, I must have hit a setting by accident - it is now highlighting the low lights of my frame with an annoying red flash, and the high light areas with a yellow/white blinking flash. I can't seem to find the correct setting to turn it off.

Please help me make it go away - it would be appreciated.

It is very rare nowadays that I come across a thread as sweet and short as this one, with a problem that reminds me of some of my own, both past and present. Obviously trivial, but totally impossible to solve and maddening at the same time. Bigolac, I instantly recognized your desperation and Jatrax/Salagubang, both of you hit it right on with your answers, instantly solving the issue and reinstating sanity for the original poster.

Likes for the three of you!
