Hi there and welcome to Just Answer. Thanks for asking your question. I'm sorry to hear about your TV.
To help you I need two important pieces of info:
1. Full model number of TV (look on the back).
2. The number of times the red light blinks before pausing and repeating.
model KV24FS100 made in2002, seial #4135324. dhassis BA6
red light blinks 2 times every 3 seconds
Two blinks on a BA6 indicates a short - it is usually the HOT (horizontal output transistor) which is a common failure point on CRT televisions.
On this set, the HOT is 'Q502' on the board.
It could also be a couple of other things but I would go straight to the HOT and it's associated pump up diode and circuitry close by.
Repair cost - probably $100-$200 if you take it in. Keep in mind a new 24" TV is probably under $250.
I'm sorry it isn't the best news.
