You have a blown power supply, most likely caused by defective electrolytic capacitors that if are electronically handy can be replaced for a few dollars.
Here is a link to some one who experienced what you are going through and how he got his repaired for less than $30.

Defective electrolytic capacitors from China are a rampant problem. Cheap Dell, computers fail all the time because of this problem. I repaired my Commercial grade $2500 Samsung 42inch LCD monitor for the very same reason. I was able to open up the case fairly easily and remove the board, replace the defective capacitors with much better grade caps and be on my way, has worked great ever since.

What does a red blinking light on the bottom right corner of the TV mean?


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience. If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
