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.
Blinking codes details of many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience. If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
View the site by desktop or webview on mobile devices to see the "search box". Type in the brand name of your set in search box; to get gathered the related posts.

First, make sure that the source is set to TV. (Use the TV button at the top left of the remote to ensure that the TV is being controlled by the remote. The Source button is the one to the right of the Power button on the remote. It's the top button on the side of the TV. ) Next press Menu. (On the remote, it's the button to the upper left of the arrow keys. It's the second button from the top on the TV side panel.) Use the Up/Down arrow keys to navigate to Channel. Press Enter. (Note: the channel buttons at the bottom of the side panel buttons match the Up/Down arrows of the remote. The Source button on the TV is the Enter key.) Press Enter again and use the Up/Down arrow keys to highlight your country. Press Enter. Navigate to Auto Store and press Enter twice. Wait for the TV to go through the channels and test for signal.

You can also add channels manually by using the Manual Store option. If you know the channel number, you would then choose Channel and select C (over-the-air) or S (cable) and then the Right arrow key. Use the arrow keys to highlight the desired channel. Press Enter. Use the arrow keys to select Store and press Enter again. Otherwise choose Search. Use the Up/Down arrows to select a channel. Press Enter, go to Store and press Enter again. Repeat this for each channel.

The manual for the LE26R73BD is available on the support page: . The current link to the manual is

I hope this helps. If you use a set top box with a non-RF coaxial cable output to the TV, the channel option will not be available.

Lightning ruins everything electronic, even things you cant see. It is best to replace the whole unit. You could find the part that is bad and replace it but then there will be something else and it is a rabbit hole. By the time you are done, you will have spent more time and money than you would have just buying the whole set.

Some tv sets from the old days used to have a sound only option - these were almost exclusively dedicated to local cable networks such as Rediffusion.

To the best of my knowledge, today no such sets offer that facility as even the audio only digital channels want their audience to see the logo and be able to access the programme schedules and other information.

If you want to kill the picture temporarily while you listen to music you will need to access the menu and turn the brightness to minimum.

Probably the power supply needs to be replaced. "Resetting" is unlikely to work.

Depends on the media receiver and on the tv.
The modern way with digital media is to hook up using a hdmi lead but older tv sets don't have hdmi sockets, unfortunately modern media receivers don't provide analogue outputs.

With a modern tv it is sometimes necessary to select the input to be used from an onscreen menu.

Try turning it up

Sounds like an imperfection in one of the layers of the screen, this can be resolved by dismantling the screen and cleaning the layers in a dust free environment...... so in everyday terms this should be done under warranty.

As for water damage.... unless the patch starts from the outer edge of the screen it is highly unlikely to be caused by water damage in my opinion.
