Is the TV plugged into a power board or into the wall socket?
And what brand TV is it?
Thank you

It's plugged into wall and its a Samsung tv
Thanks Ryan
Unplug it from the wall and hold the power button in for 60 seconds, then release.
Then connect the power, try to turn it on and tell me if it now starts.
Let me know the results please

Still doing the same standby light flashing?
Thanks, ***** ***** the problem
It is the internal mainbaord or power board that has faulted.
A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to hard restart it. In addition a faulty power extension board or residue power.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the TV to have it a diagnostics performed and the faulting component replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
