Sounds like a short. A resistor probably burned out, and is causing unregulated power to hit your system. If you look at your main PC Board, underneath the turntable platter (disconnect your turntable), and remove the board. You'll be able to look at the board, and see if there are any burn sections on the board. If so, than the components around that area will need to be replaced. Generally R213 gets burnt, and Q2, Q3 get burnt, causing this sort of issue. This is not something I would recommend fixing yourself, and I would suggest seeking professional assistance.

You might also want to take a look at your fuses, which are located on the left side on a smaller PC board. If you don't see any fuses, then your unit does not have any fuses (common) installed.

Hope this helps.

TV comes on but flashes on and off like a strobe light why?

It must have any defect. My guess is a bad soldering in the power supply. When it gets warm ir will lose he connection. But there could be lots of other causes.

Timers & recorded events erased

Ocassionally these receivers have been known to do this. It is not an issue that normally repeats itself however it is very frustrating. The upside is it ussuaaly will result in 150 hrs of record time. If you did not receive the150 hrs delete all timers and recording and reboot the system. You should have the 150 hrs once it comes back online. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

My 6 to 7 yr old television suddenly went dead

There is a board that manages the power going into your tv I would check around with local mom and pop tv reapir shops. The board is not expensive its the labor I am not sure where you live but I am sure there are local techs that work on flat panel tv's. They are pretty affordable these days. Most flat panel tv's are rated for 60,000 hrs as there life span. Hope that helps

Canon S2 IS won't turn on with rechargeable batteries??

I would let them charge til you get an indication that they are done. TV remotes require very little power to operate, while digital cameras need a lot, so that's why the batteries would work in the remotes though not fully charged.
