Those 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://electro-medical.blogspot.com/ http://homenol.blogspot.com/ http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
First try a soft reset... unplug for 20 minutes. Otherwise - the laser is dirty or misaligned. A Repair shop can clean and align for about $50. It takes specialized equipment and templates to align the laser - not something you can do on your own.
Lens cleaner discs don't work.

I fixed this problem in my DVP642 by replacing a capacitor on the main
power board where the power chord hooks in. Take the top cover off
(after unplugging player). You'll be able to locate the bad capacitor
on the circuit board located on the very right. Look for location
marked c316 on the circuit board. A bad capacitor will be bulged up on
top. The capacitor you're looking for will be a black barrel shape with
an aluminum top, this aluminum top will be bulged up or leaking on the
circuit board. Replace this capacitor by desoldering the two leads into
the board and replacing with an identical part you can pick up at Radio
Shack for a couple dollars. My repair for this identical problem was a
success. The blinking light is the tip off for this particular problem
on these Phillips models.
read on a forum that changing out c316 1000uF will fix the problem, mine will not turn on now, seems to have gotten worse over time. I will change the capacitor from 1000uF 10v to 1000uF 16v. Look at your capacitor, mine looks like its ready to blow. Most other capacitors on the board are rated at 16 volts. I will be changing out the cap. to see if it works.
Apparently this is a known issue. Some dvp642 players have compatibility issues with some of the Disney DVD's. A firmware update might help.
