Question about Philips Magnavox 20MS233S 20" TV

ERR 0 0 11 6 10

The first time I got this error, it cleared. The second time, the "S" at the top right of the screen never went away until the TV was shut down.
As of the last time it did this, yesterday, the remote no longer works with the TV, although it works with a similar Magnavox TV I have. Also there were white squares on a black background filling the bottom row of the TV screen, almost like a closed-captioning thing, but with sequential white squares instead of letters.
This TV is several years old but has been used less than average. Over the past few months it has made "arcing" noises and the picture would flicker during the arcing. Sometimes it recovered. Other times the TV would shut off, the power light would stay on, and you'd turn it fully off w/ remote or power button, and then back on, and usually it'd be OK.
My friend suggests that this arcing somehow destroys the TV's circuitry over time, leading to the errors, weird squares, and lack of remote control functionality. I don't know if the arcing is caused by dust, moisture, defective hardware, or something else. No warranty.
What you describe sounds like you have a short inside the safe bet is take it to a repair shop.
