    I have also a problem with the fan (it's an T&T MW-410H12S), which is really loud. It seems hard to find an replacement for that fan. Could someone give me a hint, where to get an replacement?

Figured it out. quite simple really.

1. Unscrew the 3 screws at the back that hold the plastic casing on (NOT the one that only go through the metal but the 3 that go through the plastic).

2. you can now slide the side plastic sections of the casing off.

3. underneath these side sections you will see that there is a small section of plastic on each side that can be pushed in which will then enable you to slide off the top part of the casing.

4. underneath the top plastic casing is further metal casing. unscrew the two screws toward the front that will then enable you to lift this inner metal casing off.

What I did to solve this problem
1. take off casing as discribed before
2. loosen screw directly behind fan-holding metal sheet which fixes the whole thing to the bottom of the circuit board
3. take out fan with its holding
4. unpeel sticker at the back of fan
5. put on two, three drops of light oil
6. go back to step one in opposite direction
For me worked perfectly...i didnt have some light mechanical oil...therefore I used sunflower oil...worked, too. See, when it goes rancid, then I replace the whole thing.

I have removed my internal fan and powering on the error i get on the display is F61. So I guess you only have the internal fan to replace :)

As far as I can know, F61 means your output IC is dead. Contact a service centre in your locality for repair!

SC-BT 100 Error Code f61

Had the same problem. Found that the code refers to the cooling fan. Could be that the fan is dusty or not running when the system starts up. I removed the fan with the two screws and reseated the plug. Make certain that the short, black wire (that seems to go to nothing) is securing the plug to the board.

Error Message

The F61 indicates a problem detected in the output amp stage and the unit us shutdown to prevent further damage. If you can supply the model number, I can give you the part required and the approximate cost.

Same problem here. In my case, it's a problem with the fan. I solved this (for the time being...) by cleaning the fan.

1. remove the 3 screws fixing the cover (at the back of your DT310);
2. the 2 side covers come off easily, but to release the (plastic) top cover, you need to push in the cover at both sides to let it come off the retaining hooks (take a closer look at the side of the top cover, you'll see what I mean);
3. remove the 2 screws holding the remaining metal cover, and move this cover backwards;
4. now you can check, clean or replace the fan.

Putting it back together should be easy now. ;-)

Good luck!
