My LI42 battery won't charge for my Olympus 790 SW. The charging light comes on, then flashes, then turns off within about a minute. The battery does not charge at all during this time.

Problem is most likely the battery. Try getting a new battery of the same specifications and see. That is the cheaper option. If that still does not work, then it could be the charger. ... Olympus Digital Cameras
