Question about Cameras
Before you get creative and directly plug your batter into an AC adapter, try something much easier first. I have the same problem with my Olympus 770SW batteries. As silly as it sounds, the charger will only work in a select few outlets in my house that I found by trial an error, actually pure frustration. I suggest, go around your house and plug the blinking charger in all the outlets and see if you find one that works. That sounds a lot less shocking than solution 1 and 2 now doesn't it? Good luck!

Yeah, get a cell phone charger and cut the wire to expose the copper underneath. Attach the red to the positive terminal of the battery and the black to the negative. Leave the middle Terminal 'T' exposed and plug the cell charger to the wall with the camera battery attached. Leave for 5 to 10 mins and then use the original charger that came with the camera and this should do it.

I modified nick_9035's solution a bit. I connected the camera battery first to a 9v battery, connecting it to the corresponding positive and negative terminals for one minute. even 2 AAA batteries would do. then I looked for a different outlet and plugged it in. worked like a charm! (note that when I changed outlets without doing this, the camera charger still kept on blinking)
