Does power light on TV lit or blink when press power button?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

OK, have you tried to unplug TV and cable box power cords from wall outlet for 10 minutes to reset, replug back in and check?
If not yet, can you try it now and reply back with the result?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It now blinks but will not turn on
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

I understand, how many times the light blinks, pauses for 3 seconds and repeats the blink pattern?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

Can you please count the blinks and post that info here?

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

I mean count the blinks between pause to pause, it could be 1 to 9 blinks.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
WI counted 20 and it was still blinking
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

Let me explain it with an example, light blinks 5 times fast then pause for 3 seconds and again blinks for 5 times, again pause for 3 seconds and this keeps on..

Can you recheck the blinks of light one more time as this is an error code that will help to diagnose the problem in TV.

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

If light blinks one time then pauses for 3 seconds and blinks again one time then error code would be 1 blink.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It blinks at the same speed all the time
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

OK, so the error code is 1 blink.

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue.
