Blinking red light means overheating. Do you hear the fan when you start the console.

What type of YLOD kit you used. If you used heat gun maybe you overheated you processor or thermal sensor, which one is under the CPU.

If you used YLOD kit with only thermal paste and cooper shims, disassemble the console and check everything again.
