Blinking settings at the menu.. reason?

Just got a second hand K-50 and im not sure what is the reason why the apperture and shutter speed settings at the LCD of the K50 blink ( its kind of annoying ).. I used to own a Kr and i dont remember that menue to do that.

Kind anybody tell me why are the settings blinking? and can i stop it?

They will blink red if those settings are inappropriate for the current light available.
Press the Green button and see if this changes.

It's a warning, flashing things mean danger, if it blinks to long it will blow up
