Panasonic blu-ray player shows F61, shuts off, won't turn on

My 1-year-old Panasonic SA-BT230 blu-ray player/home theater system is now unable to turn on. Every time I try to turn it on, it displays "F61" and shuts itself off immediately. It was doing this sporadically for about a week, but over the last two nights it has done this constantly. Please help!

Hi,

F61 error codes could either be IC501 or the regulator (IC502) in the power supply section.

For reference, pls view these two (2) posts here and here of similar concern on other models.

Other possibilities are:
1. fan not turning;
2. cold solder;
3. looses connections;
4. one of the other components/systems hooked up to the power supply is causing a fault (tuner, disc player).

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

On my Panasonic SA-BT230 blu ray player it will not recognise my external hard drive in the USB port, how do i fix this? thanks


hi i have a 500gb external hard drive with its own power supply, also same blu ray player, to get it to recognise your usb device you need a tool like mini tool partition wizard i got mine from a torrent site but im sure it has a free trial, any way connect your HDD to a computer and back up all data before continuing, then open the partitioning tool (these options are not available in windows which is why you need third party software) select the HDD and select delete (only after you have backed up your data), then apply once this is complete you will see the HDD is is now "unallocated" select the drive again and select create on this box select fat32 file system and change from logical drive to primary and give it a name if you like then hit ok then apply and thats it. move all your data back and it will see the drive again.
I should mention that i hit one snag when i did this, as you know the bluray player will play movie files .AVI and not .MKV or .MP4 but once i carried out this operation my blu ray player (sa-bt230) will play these other formats but not the .AVI ones, which in the manual is states it will not play the others only .AVI's.
not a problem as such for me as i can now watch my downloads in better res and with DTS sound.
hope this helps

HELLO

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

F61 is a problem with the output amplifier pac. It is the equivalent of "protect" mode. The output pac needs to be replaced. I'll look up the part number for you.
