Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the Samsung flat screen TV.

Have you tried unplugging this TV for an extended period of time?

Appreciate the information.

As posted above; "...Have you tried unplugging this TV for an extended period of time?..."

And does the blinking immediately starts after plugging back in? ...or only after attempting to turn on?

Any pattern to the blink? ...3 blinks...pause...3 blinks...pause...3 blinks...pause...
