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.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, [Exclude the model number] in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Hello Compgeek09,
It appears that one of the CCFL lights might have broken behind the screen and that is why the TV would turn on for 1 second and goes off after.
The noise you are hearing could peaces of shattered or broken light and you would have to remove the screen and to be able to fix it, if you are up for the challenge.
Let me know if you required further assistance.

To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
Never think, that a TV works one only with some capacitors. Some people thinks so.

If this is related to no picture or sound, then the power supply in many of these Samsung's TV's have under rated capacitors installed causing them to bulge or fail. If you are out of warranty and cannot fix it yourself, get someone who understands electronics to verify the problem and fix it.

Just for added clarification, remember to use the "Air" connector at the back when using an antenna and the "Cable" connector for the cable box or wire.
