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.

Nothing is happening because the firmware can't recover/repair the error. Yes, you must take your unit to a dealer, this is a hardware fault and the faulty part must be replaced.

Plug AC power cord to wall electric socket if it is plugged into a surge protector or extension, if not try a different socket, if issue still exist have unit service.
