The flashing timer light blinks out a code, where it flashes some number of times, pauses, then repeats. The code indicates what fault is keeping the set from coming on.

This light will flash rapidly for about one minute each time the TV is plugged into the wall electrical outlet, when power is restored after a power failure, or using the SYSTEM RESET button. Do not attempt to turn on the TV again during this period. Wait for the flashing to stop and the light to turn off, before attempting to turn the TV on. While the TV is powered on, the light illuminates steadily. If the TV has been programmed to turn on automatically using the Timer feature,

Usually these are various failures of internal fuses or circuit boards. There's a fair amount of information on threads at techlore.com on this, so try searching there. Teh specific codes and manuals are usually it seems under license from Sony and not available for free to the public. Sorry!
