You have me worried. If time is running on and if this is a typical end of life pattern, we all have a frightening experience to look forward to. Up to now, my AK240 only gets warm when playing higher-density files, and never alarmingly hot.
Like I said, mine may be a fluke but I'm definitely not going to try to charge it again. Just as an update, after it cooled down, it powered up again, like normal. The interesting thing is the battery remained at 50% so, trying to charge it, just PO'd the battery. Given that, it's not as dire as I thought but still no less of a catastrophic failure waiting to happen.
