Try leaving the receiver powered off and unplugged for an hour or more.

Then try powering it on again.

If the 2 blue LEDs continue to blink then this confirms that the power circuit inside the receiver has failed, possibly due to damage resulting from a voltage surge after the power outage.

Let me know if the power reset works for you?
