FZ70 Flash problem

I'm one of those old mossbacks who uses an FZ70 and likes it. However, the built-in flash which I rarely use has suddenly gone hinky on me. Although the camera tells me the battery is fully charged and everything else works as it should, the flash takes forever to heat up, charge, or do whatever it needs to actually go off. I've tried all the different flash settings, know the camera well enough not to use it in burst mode or otherwise slow redeye detect etc, but it still takes 5-10 seconds for the flash to work. Is the battery getting as old and creaky as me or is it something else? Any advice would be appreciated.
