    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.

    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.
