Hello I am new here and this is my first post. I joined specifically to find an answer to a problem I am having. Today as I was taking some outdoor photos I noticed that a couple of them were showing up on my LCD monitor normally but then they would flash negatively (as if they were negatives). Does anyone know why this would happen? It seems the photos that were affected were photos that were a bit overexposed. I was able to load the photos onto my computer and they look fine there. I would like to know if this is a real problem and how I can rectify it.
Thank you in advance.

Do you mean that some white areas are flashing black?

If that is the problem, it sounds like you have the "blinkies" turned on. They are there to show areas that are so overexposed they are blown out, and are actually a very helpful tool to have turned on. If you want to turn them off, go through the menu until you see something called "highlight alert" or similar and switch it to disable.

Oh my goodness, you are the most awesome person ever. I so much appreciate your help. I was so worried. Yesterday after a day of shooting I would press my shutter button and it would take a few seconds to snap the picture. I don't why that happened either but my husband reset the camera and that seemed to rectify that problem but then it must have then enabled the blinking.

That sounds like you had the drive mode set to timer. I don't know how many options the 60D has for drive modes, as I have never used that camera, but you should be able to at least set it to single frame, multi-frame (AKA burst mode, it keeps shooting as long as you have your finger held down on the shutter button, usually has options for hi or low speed - say 6 or 3 frames per second)) or timer (usually with options of 2 second or 10 second delay).

If you were switching between single frame and a burst mode, you may have accidentally bumped it into timer mode. If it happens again just press the "drive" button on the top plate and scroll it to an icon showing one box or multiple stacked boxes. Anything that looks like a simplified clock face, such as a dot with an arrow going around it in a circle, will be a timer mode and will result in the camera delaying the shot for the time set (2 or 10 sec).
