I had this exact problem when I had not used my camera for some time. For me the solution was to take out the flash card, and turn on the camera while pressing the flash button. This allowed me to run the self diagnostic test (which were ok by the way), and then after turning the camera off and on again it worked!

Hello. Do not know the model of your camera, but sounds like system internal error. Try to download the firmware for your model at kodak website listed under support. Be sure to get only the file for your model camera !!!!!
I have a similar problem in the same camera: all hardware is ok but it doesn't focus. I've taked out the focus motor and it works, and all the pieces works too, they're not damaged, in fact wth the motor out I can focus manualy the picture. So I think it could be a firmware problem, but the OLYMPUS software doesn't leave me to write the same version of firmware, and there's no new versions, so is there any way to rewrite the same version of fw????? any service program?
It could be that the connection to the screen has loosened up for some reason. If the warranty is void you can try to open it up (if you're up to it), taking the bottoms screws out, and then only the one's close to the screen side on the sides (hehe I hope you understand what I'm trying to tell you ;) ) The screen should be the first thing you see, if you loosen the 4 screws that hold that you can see the connection, just try to fasten it a little bit better, and then screw everything back to it's place.
Let me know if that didn't do the job :)

i just posted the same problem a few minutes ago and now i have the solution!! got to this link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=437509&lang=en
download the driver if needed (the firmware installation will tell you if you need it) and then download the firmware. immediately after i downloaded the firmware, the "charging flash" went away! hope it works for you too~
