Sounds like you have a short somewhere, probably the Horizontal Output Transistor. If there is a fault the led you mentioned probably should be blinking. You probably are going to need a tech to look at this as it is a very complicated process of elimination.

Guages when crazy. Now won't even try to start.

You likely have it repaired by now but it sounds like a classic case of oxidized battery or cable connection (sometimes mis-diagnosed as bad battery but cured with new (clean) battery)

My TV screen has no picture

If the light goes out you definitely have a short somewhere. If it blinks you have a fault, probably in the High Voltage circuit. Most common problem is a shorted Horizontal Output Transistor. Unless you are an experienced technician you probably need to have a reputable repair facility look at this one. Most will give you an estimate for free or for a small fee which will be deducted if you decide to have them fix it.
