My thanks to your husband (and all who are involved in this stupid conflict) for his service.
You didn't mention whether there was a pattern to the blinking which in some sets can be decoded into a specific problem. I'll assume it is a regular blink rate you have.
All modern sets have a standby state that allows them to respond to the remote when they are 'off.' The power for the LED that's blinking comes from this 'always on' power supply and the fact that it is blinking probably (and unfortunately) means that either the main power supply has failed or possibly the lamp in some brands.
Because this can come from more than one place, it's not possible to determine which source it might be. The owner's manual might give info under 'Troubleshooting' as to the source.
If you don't have the manual available, you can download one here:
If you find that it is the main power supply, this is likely on a separate board and may be user replaceable.
Pull the AC plug from the wall and let it sit for at least a couple of hours to allow certain components to loose any dangerous charge. Remove the lower panel from the set and look for a board with larger than average parts on it, particularly cylindrical objects (capacitors) and larger dark blocks (transformers). Look on that board for a part number for the board (not the components).
Locate the nearest Mitsubishi repair company and call to see if they repair failed boards or only sell new. Once you have the price for it (could be $90-$200 US), you can decide if you want to replace or repair it.
Replacing the board is probably not rocket science and have had several ladies do this on their own.
If you find it is the lamp that has failed, this is also something you can do without great technical skills and the prices for these ranges from ~$125 - $200.
