SOURCE: Error code U61 on a
The manual refers to the U61 as being a recovery mode. Have you left it at U61 for a period of time while it tries to recover?
U61 ≥There was a power failure or the AC plug was disconnected while the unit was on. The unit is
carrying out its recovery process. This process restores the unit to normal operation. The unit is not
broken. Wait until the message disappears.
You could always try to force it into standby mode and back out again:
Press [í/I, POWER] on the main unit to switch the unit to standby.
Now press [í/I, POWER] on the main unit again to turn the unit on.
If that doesn't take care of it, everything thing I've found points toward a replacement of components inside the system by a repair service. Hopefully you are still under warranty!

If fail unplug and hold power button for a minute or two and turn it on and repeat.

The service manual says that:
U61 = The unit is carrying its recovery process (with no disk in the tray) . If there is a disk remove it and restart the unit . This is the message that appears when the system's firmware crashed because of an incorrect command - normal operating procedure, just wait for it to finish. If the message doesn't goes away in 10 minutes after a power cycle you should force it: press the Ch UP and Ch DOWN buttons until the DVB Auto-Setup message appears on the screen.
If nothing you do has an effect and you haven't done anything to the unit when this message appeared then the fault is hardware - the processor of the unit has failed. The only way to fix that is to replace the mainboard. But that would cost about $175, more than a new unit, so it's time for a new one.

Only if it's worth it to you, if the unit was fairly cheap, no I would not recommend it, a new unit would give a brand new warranty making it more pleasing, since you had it fixed before it is time to replace.
