I reluctantly scheduled a technician to come out next week and take a look at my set. I was going to pay, at minimum, $65 for the service visit. I was then blessed with the intutition to do a bit more research regarding the PIP box being stuck on my television and other input functions (Inputs 1,2, and DVD) being unavailable.
I stumbled across a post on the internet that mentioned that the VS50603 can reset certain error conditions by pressing and holding the Input and Menu buttons (simulatneously) on the front panel on the TV while it is off. At some point after initiating this internal reset the LED light should starting flashing at defined intervals. The number of flashes correlate to a particular error code. Please go to the Mitsubishi website and download the owners manual (VS50609 in my case, couldn't locate VS50603) to lookup what the various error codes mean.
It seemed to me that that the LED flashing did not start immediately after pressing the Input and Menu buttons. In fact, I awoke the next morning to find the TV off but the LED flashing 10 times, pausing briefly, then flashing 10 times again. The sequence of the flashes mean something. Here again, consult your owner's guide for specifics.
Long story short, after awaking to find the LED flashing, I then turned the TV on and voila-my big screen was back minus that pesky PIP box prominently displayed.
I hope this helps someone like it helped me!! Truly a Blessing for sure.

A quick fix for this is to use a hair dryer to heat up the capacitors and then plug the tv back in. It should only take about 90-120 seconds to heat them up depending on how hot the dryer is. The cap's are located on the right side. Take the front cover off the TV, and heat up the box that is about the size of a small cable box on the right side. Once the cap's are warm, they will stay warm as long as the TV stays plugged in.

You are not going to like this one little bit. The reason the LED won't stop blinking is because the digital module is not booting up. I have been fighting this model Mitsubishi for over five years now and the only solid fix is to send the entire chassis back to Mitsubishi for rebuilding. Pulling the chassis is a major job and with shipping costs and Mitsubishi's charges this repair usually runs around $750 to $850. However many owners that contacted Mitsubishi about this problem have gotten that portion of the repair bill coverd. That still leaves $300 to $400 for the tv shop that pulls the chassis and reinstalls it once it is rebuilt.

You will need to cahnge the capacitors on the DM board, very common problem. The V21 V19 DM repair kit at the following link contains the replacement capacitors and detailed instructions. Its listed under the repair kits catagory at the following link.
