AirPort Express status light (LED) behavior and meanings
This document says it flashes for a second on power up, and to indicate "network traffic during normal use" if you've selected that option.
Not helpful, since you seem to have lost your wireless network. I'd try a "hard reset" (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1450). If that doesn't work I'd begin to suspect it might be defective.
My suggestion is to reset your AirPort. Next to the audio output is a very small "button". If you have poor vision, get our glasses on to se it. Use a pen or paperclip to press this down for about 15 seconds. The green light will go orange, you will get a bunch of flashing and it should come back to life. This is basically totally resetting your AirPort.
Mind you, it will have a different "name" (Something like Apple03f76a245c298) and will no longer be password protected.
I talked my brother through this last night and it worked fine.
