Lights blinks even after switching off the power
 
Hi,

Check if you have excessive voltage on the neutral wire (white one) to grounding conductor (green or bare one)

First, call power company and have them check incoming power. If nothing resolved there, have a good electrician do an inspection on your house connection and service panel.

Are these fluorescent lights? If so, there can be enough leakage through a dimmer or a lighted switch to cause the lights to flash briefly.
