What is blink rate when you say continous blinking? every second or faster?
If using battery, it can be discharged after 1 hour. If data, then data can be exhausted after an hour. Please check.

This can happen if power source is unable to supply enough current for connecting to network on boot up. Ensure a stable 2A current capable source.

Can be multiple reasons. Power, PWRKEY pin etc. Check voltages and see if you making PWRKEY low.
