Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

First, try resetting the TV:

Hold power button on front panel for 10 seconds to reset it.

If the LED continues to flash after reset, turn off the TV and unplug it from the wall for one minute and then plug it back in and turn it on again.

If that doesn't help then the TV has an internal fault, most likely on the main signal board.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
