Question about Panasonic SC-PM08 Shelf System

Error Code "F76"

Hi again, I had posted previously about this model, but listed the error code as "F74" by accident. There is no mention in the owners manual of any error codes except "F61". I've been everywhere on the net I can think of, but Panasonic is very protective of their tech. info, so I doubt anyone who hasn't worked for an authorized service depot will know what it signifies. I suspect it is the o/p stage of the amplifier, but as it only powers up for about 2 seconds before a relay clicks & the error code is displayed, (speakers connected or not), it is next to impossible to troubleshoot without the service manual, or at least knowing what that code means. Thanks BowerR64 & Techman for responding, if this corrected info sheds any light for anyone, please let me know. Thanks!

If it is the power supply, I have one of these with this code, can I buy a replacement power supply and install it myself?

Re: Error Code "F76"

1.If unit powered up for short time comes message for short time "Wait"

Then error "F76" and unit totally turn OFF. Problem w/ Power Supply.

2.If unit doesn't turn OFF but on the display error "F76" may be AMP Board.

Turn OFF the unit, disconnect cable from main board to AMP board. Try now power ON.
If doesn't come more error "F76" it means doesn't work AMP.

Re: Error Code "F76"

Techman is right, "F76" is displayed when the speaker cord connections are hooked up wrong. If they're hooked up right and you still get the error, it is a power supply problem.

Re: Error Code "F76"

Is there a fan in the unit? if so, is it connected properly and moving freely? After doing some open testing and modifications on my scpm38 bookshelf system I noticed that F76 code is displayed when there is a fan error

The word protect is on my stereo and i cant seem to use cd,tape player,or radio. and the power will not go off

Hi Anita,

Protect is an error code for short and or overload. This will appear once the processor sense a malfunction either on the power supply or on the load (high chance is the output IC). DIY steps are as follow to determine where the fault is : 1. Allow the unit to cool down for an hour. Give proper ventilation and keep away all obstruction from the vent to have a sufficient air flow. 2. Disconnect one at a time the speakers, inputs, from the unit while powering it on.

If the unit back to normal again then you've confirmed that any of the above caused the error code. If #1 is the caused, you have to check also the exhaust fan(if installed), clean it as much as possible, replaced if faulty. If #2 is the caused (speaker) check the wire and speakers for short, (input) check the RCA cord for short or replaced if necessary.

If the above simple fix didn't cure the error code, you should need help from friends that can perform this steps. Now after removing the cover, you have to concentrate first on the power supply board. Look for bulged electrolytic capacitor. Leaky capacitor will affect the regulation of the supply and will trigger the error code. Look for dry joints. Check it also in the pre-amplifier stage, main output board where a big heat sink is located. Next disable the output amplifier stage by disconnecting the supply. If the unit come out, make some re-soldering on the board, spot the cold solder and dry joints and then try to connect again. If the error code appear again, high chance that your output IC is faulty but still to be confirmed. Using the disoldering pump and soldering iron pull-out the output IC from the board then try the unit. If the error code disappear, confirmed that your IC is faulty.After trying the abovesteps-by-steps guide and still the symptoms persist this is the time for you to send it to repair shop. Remember that your unit has a lot of parts and only some basic steps have done, leave the expert to troubleshoot the entire unit.

Give a thumbs up if you find it useful.

Have a nice day!

Thanks for using Fixya.
