Question about Panasonic SC-AK17 Shelf System
I have a f 61 error
This is a common error for these Panasonic units. I work at an authorized Panasonic service center and have repaired many of these.
This error is caused by either 1 of these 2 problems, both of which will require service for replacement of parts.
1. The amplifier IC is bad and needs to be replaced.
2. There are a couple of smaller components in the amp circuit that need to be replaced. One is a zener diode and the other is a resistor.
The F61 error is caused by a bad amp circuit or power supply circuit. In most cases it is the amp circuit. More often than not, it is the zener diode and resistor that are bad. This would be preferable since the amplifier IC is very expensive and a total repair cost would be close to $200. The zener diode and resistor repair would be closer to about $100 depending on the rates of the service center.
I know this may not be the answer you were hoping to get, but it is the problem you have.
