Since that's about the same age as the Series 2 non-satellite TiVos, chances are really good you've got capacitors going bad in the power supply.
Fortunately it's a fairly easy and inexpensive fix if that is the source of your problem.
Is the hard drive the same one with which it left the factory?
If so, there's a really good chance that it's going bad as well.
