Do you still need help with this?

The check hybrid light is too vague. It will come on for just about any hybrid system-related reason on the prius. Yours could be on because the hybrid battery detected a short, the gas engine isn't coming on, the cooling pump for the HV battery is failing, etc. Your only hope to know what is going on is to have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes to see what system is triggering the fault.

Do you plan to perform any diagnosis/repairs yourself?

No , I dont

In that case your best bet is to run it in to the dealer. They will have the proper diagnostic equipment to check the HV system.
