Default flashing orange charge light

For the past two nights when I plug in my incredible the orange light flashes for a few seconds then goes steady. Does anyone know why? Has anyone had this happen to them?

Before anyone can answer that, we would need answers to a few questions:

1. Are you rooted and running a custom ROM?
2. What charging method are you using?
3. Are you supplying the proper voltage supply to charge the device?

That has happened to me only a couple of times. I was using the slingplayer and had the phone charging from a computer USB. A battery pull fixed it each time. I think the battery just got too hot for some unknown reason.

non rooted
had the phone off both times
just a verizon home charger that I have used multiple times before.

Both times did happen right after I got done using it for a while.

Mine blinks for a few seconds when charging if the battery level is below 5%(approximately) and the phone is off

Edit: it might actually blink for a few seconds when charging(if off) no matter the battery state, just that the only time my phone is off is because it ran out of battery.

I had mine flash constantly when I was using my phone as a GPS for an extended period of time. I shut the screen off for a bit and it stopped. I just assumed it was my phone telling me it was overheating.
