Occasionaly when taking pictures, the result is like a psychadelic image or similar to a negative. How do I fix this or should I return my camera for another one?

Are you talking about what you see on the camera's screen, or did you actually upload the images and look at them with a computer? Depending on your camera's settings, the screen may show you false colors or a partially blinking image to warn you of problems like blown highlights or impenetrable shadows. Are you sure that's not what you're seeing?

This is the result of taking a picture, when I go back and review the pictures taken, some will show fine and others will have the psychadelic/negative effect. I didn't change any settings.

I think what Bob said is probably right in this case. When an image is taken and the camera detects areas where the highlights are overexposed and blown-out, those areas will flash between normal and what looks like a negative of that. This feature is called Highlight alert. It is to let you know those areas are too bright so you can try shooting again or apply negative exposure compensation if you want to. I still want to verify this is indeed the case though.
When you take an image that is darker or in a darker location, do you no longer see the "negative effect" when reviewing the image?
If you download and image with this effect to your computer and view it, does it show on your computer just as it does on the camera's LCD?
