You just had to buy the cheap one... These units have an all too common failure in the SMPS, (made in China) which is a MLT166A part number if you're buying the whole supply. But the SMPS can easily be removed in this unit and after you access it you'll find three 16v/1000mf caps that have failed EC18, EC19 & EC20, together with Z3 a 27v 1w zener diode... You can replace the caps with a 25v/1000mf if you order them to size. The higher voltage will provide a greater reliability...
If any or all that sounds too confusing you can simply replace the entire SMPS for just about $70.00 plus shipping. They're available at Fox International 888-498-7278 but don't be surprised if their temporarily out of stock and on backorder. Techs buy these things by the case because they are that common a failure.

The mlt169c appears to be a direct replacement for the original. I fixed on of these by simply replacing the caps. Previous to this it was flashing the red light just like yours. Anyway if ya wanna give up i'll buy it for 50 bucks :)
