Default Jpeg playing RAW

I took some photos yesterday but was surprised to see the highlights flashing black on the LCD screen just as it would if using RAW.
I wasn't using RAW, i checked and checked all settings, it was set to Jpeg.
A couple of days before that i had played with the RAW setting but made sure i reset it to jpeg so was wondering why it appears to be holding the RAW settings?
Any ideas people?
I could set it back to factory default i guess but why is it highlighting the highlights in flashing black in jpeg?

Thanks Clint, didn't know about that one. Now to find it, lol.
What's the use of it when it only shows after you have taken the photo?

I guess so you can take it again. I turned it off when I had my FZ35.
If I have "blowouts" they can be easily fixed in post processing using "levels".


Good explanation here

Or you could take them to the tire shop for repair.
