The flashing Orange light means the charge is flashing. The flashing Green light means the focus and exposure are not correct.
Have you recently replaced the batteries? Or are you using rechargeable batteries? Lack of enough "Juice" could allow for the flash to not charge up (Orange) therefore not allowing the camera to get the correct exposure (Green). I would try new fresh batteries or a new battery pack. If that doesn't fix the issue it must be a bad circuitry in the body that is shorting not letting the flash charge.
2 thoughts. 1, with both green and orange lights flashing the manual indicates that that means that the battery is not charged. This site provided an answer to a similar question that suggested cleaning around the battery area [see Bill BS answer to Wendy]. 2, To you and Wendy, I had a similar problem and a call to Olympus suggested the likely problem was not battery related. When you open the slide, and if you press down on the cover, around where the "s" on olympus appears, that keeps the lens extended. Don't know why that is, or how to permanently fix, but it seemed to work.
TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTITf correct focus cannot be obtained
When the subject to be focused is not on the AF target mark (not positioned
in the center of the composition), you can use the following steps to obtain the
correct focus on the subject. This operation is referred to as "focus lock".

• When the green lamp lights steadily,
the focus and the exposure are locked.

your finger from the shutter button, reposition
your subject and press the
shutter button halfway again.

The type of batteries that you use will make a difference. You didn't specify what type of batteries that you've been using. If you haven't been using lithium batteries, I would try some of those. You can find them anywhere they sell batteries. They're the energizer e2 ones. Usually in a blue package. They're a little more expensive than the regular alkaline ones, but they're better for digital devices and they'll last a lot longer.
