Good afternoon! The lock light flashing means your control lock is engaged. One of the buttons on your touchpad you just need to press and hold for 5 seconds to unlock the control panel. You can try each button for 5 seconds one at a time and if for some reason you can't determine which one unlocks the control panel, just send me your full model number and I can tell you which one you press and hold.
