That means there is a problem with the heater in the blanket. It will not allow the blanket to for the heater senses the heaters either burned out or shorted out. Unfortunately there is no fix for this as they do not sell parts for the blankets. You would have to buy a new one I am sorry for the bad news. please do not kill the messenger thank you:)
