Problem with reviewing photos on a K50

I have a new K50 and think a problem has developed when I review photos that I have taken. When I look at photos that include a wide range of brightnesses, such as a lot of sunny sky amid dark objects, I find that the bright areas pulse a brilliant red. The dark areas pulse yellow. By pulse I mean that these colors flash at about one pulse per second, like a beacon. Apart from this problem I can upload and process my photos without any problems. Has anybody encountered this effect? Is it a real problem or just a characteristic of the K50? I didn't notice this effect on my Kx.

That is a feature called 'highlight alert' - it is telling you that the highlights are clipping. It can be switched on/off in the playback menu.

Thank you so much. I'll check it out. Glad to know the camera is operating as designed.
