Question about Audio Players & Recorders

F61 Error Hello, I am deeply distressed seeing this F61 error in my Hifi system (Panasonic SC-VK950) which I purchased about a year before. The audio system was entirely fine, but one day, the cd rack was stuck showing an error as some CHR ERR. As per the manual, I switched off and switched on. But what happened was the speakers gave a shrill noise and I immediately switched off. On retrying, all I see is a seconds sound of "dub" in surround speakers and f61 error and turns off. I was very attached to the system and bought it with more interest and gave more care and very disappointed now. Is the problem repairable? To what extent the problem could be? Would it involve the speakers too. Is the problem minor that me being a non-technical person could handle? Also, from my past experience with philips. It so happened that the philips system was repaired and when checked with its service center. they returned back after a week saying the parts are not manufactured these days and I had to just junk it up now. Will the same happen with this now? or are the parts available kind with panasonic. Awaiting your reply to clear my doubts. Thank you.

When i turn on my receiver f61 code comes on then it shuts off how do i fix it. Panasonic SC-ht650

Many things can cause the error code f61 on a Panasonic.

Most of them need a service tech to repair. Output IC or voltage regulator....

The one thing you may be able to check is the cooling fan, it should turn on hen the power button is pushed. Make sure it spins freely.

Most often it is the output IC

I have the SB-HW950 subwoofer and teh SC-PT950 speakers and I just purchased a Denon Receiver to replace my DVD/ receiver player. So now I have SC-PT950 speakers playing through the Denon but for some...

Yes, the old Panasonic SC-PT950 did drive the subwoofer by its own amp, such as it was.

It's never a good idea to adapt prescribed connectors to bare speaker wire or vice versa.

Speaker Level and Line Level signals are worlds apart and equipment damage may result. Your Denon (model unknown) probably requires a POWERED SUBWOOFER, to which it would provide Line Level LFE from its Pre Out.

Read the manual where it doesn't say to convert a speaker wire to RCA.

My SAHT940 continually gives me an F61 error. I have disconnected and reconnected the speakers to no avail. Any ideas?

The F61 is a "protect mode" error indication. This means that a problem has been detected in the final stage of the amplifier. In your unit, this is an AMP-PAC (IC). Either that IC is defective or a regulator IC has failed. The output IC runs around $95 or more for the part. I would suggest that you get a detailed repair estimate from a servicer and proceed from there.

Try disconnecting the speaker that you added. If the sound comes back, then you're ok. Just don't add any more speakers. If not, then it's possible the amp is blown.

Too many speakers connected together to one output can cause an overload and either blow a fuse or trigger the protection circuitry. If the protection is triggered or blows a fuse with all speakers disconnected, then your amp is shot.

Hopefully, that's not the case. Try disconnecting all the speakers and see what happens. If you still get the error, then the amp is gone.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!
