i think that you may need a replacement, but we need some photos to confirm that you need a replacement or not

Just spoke with Apple support again and she mentioned a step no other support advisor mentioned...reset the NV RAM. To do this, I held the Option, Command, P and R keys while starting the computer. I held the keys for 20 seconds and the computer did another restart, after which I released the keys. This has stopped the flashing for now. If the flashing restarts again, I'll add to this post. Thanks for your input, if you had responded to this post.

After using the computer for a couple of hours, the problem with the touch bar is back.

Now what? It also worked for a very short time

Apple might not endorse this but a strip of gaff tape over the whole thing solves the annoying flashing. Blacked out and gone. Battery life will probably still exceed woeful but, hey! it is a Mac!

In my experience this is a sign that the Touch Bar's display is failing and needs to be replaced. It's not an unusual issue, but it is a bit of a gnarly repair due to the sheer amount of adhesive involved.

This is the process for a 2020 model, which will be quite similar as far as getting the touchbar itself out. Just for point of reference.

Thanks Alisha. This is very helpful. I don’t think I want to take this type of extensive repair on myself. Do you know a good place to send it for this type of repair, other than apple?

@djz18 That's a good question. And I don't blame you for not wanting to undertake it yourself. I would ask friends or family if they have any local recommendations. I don't have any specific suggestions, aside from not Apple since they will not do this repair independent of a full top case replacement, which is quite pricey.
