SOURCE: Battery charger won't charge
I'm sorry to say I don't know much about Olympus digital cameras, I've never had one on the bench.
I would take your camera and charger to a shop that sells Olympus batteries try a different battery first, this way you can try it out before you buy and make sure the camera and charger are working ok...
The battery is a Li-Ion, when these get flattened too far they shut down and will refuse to charge, they can sometimes be recovered by using a power supply to lift them but you must be very careful (use a 300ma wall wart at just over the rated voltage of the battery for 10 mins then put it back in the charger) as they can catch fire if over charged, shorted or connected backwards also if its been so flat it refuses to charge its certainly past its best and should be replaced as its likely it will let you down again.
On the other hand it could be the charger, so best to try and check out both before buying anything.
If it happened very suddenly and the battery was still able to run the camera for quite a while I would think a charger problem is more likely, if the battery has been taking less time to charge recently and lasting shorter times its more likely the battery..
Having said that the protection circuits can shut down a seemingly good battery for other reasons.
If you find its the charger third party (non Olimpus) chargers are available quite cheaply on ebay as are batteries
Best of luck

Westfield46 was right! I tried the recommended fix and it worked! Thanks so much. It turned what I thought was a piece of trash into a usable camera.

SOURCE: can ytou please tell me
I only say "no" because an 8 megapixel camera would be taking pictures from 640x480 up to <something huge>x<something else huge>
In any case if you were to ask "HOW" to change the capture resolution, on most camera's you'd go into the camera setup menu, then into the picture quality settings, and usually choose between low, medium, and high... or good, better, best... depends on the camera, but it means the same thing =-]
