The F61 error is an amplifier failure.This error can be caused by a blown channel or even a failure in the power supply which causes the unit to detect an amplifier failure because the power supply is not supplying the proper voltage to the amplifier. On more rare occasions this can be caused by broken solder connections in the amplifier and/or power supply. Without having the receiver in front of me to troubleshoot it is impossible to tell you exactly what the cause is.

It can be fixed, but it will require some decent electronic skills. If you do not have a multimeter, soldering equipment, and an understanding of electronic components it would be best to let a service center look at it for you. If you do have these tools and would like to try and fix it yourself, let me know and I may be able to guide you thru the troubleshooting process.

    I think I just fixed the same problem, waiting to see if it still works. My theory is that a wire has crossed somewhere in the center speaker, creating a short which heats up the amplifier. I had also placed stuff over the vent at the top of the amplifier. Therefore the fix is to let it cool overnight and check the speakers with a multimeter to see they are roughly 8 ohms.

Why my dvd players show error f 16.i aslo cant`t on my player and then the error dissappear.why?


Hello,
Are you sure you are not getting a code F61? I don't see in the manual a code f-16. It's says to "When a unit displays F61 - check and correct the speaker cable connections, If this does not fix the problem then consult the dealer." That is strait out of the manual for your theater system. I have uploaded a couple of diagrams to aid you with double checking your wiring. Should this not work then you must contact your dealer.
Regards,
Tont

DISPLAY STARTS OK THEN F61 APPEARS THEN STEREO SWITCHES OFF


Probaby needs the output ic. F61 is an output/power error code. But check that the fans turn before trying to replace or taking it in to be fixed. If a fan is not turning you will get F61 too.

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.

F61


Sound amplifier ic??******** this guy is talking out of his ***.
F61 relates to fan error. There are two fans, one of them is either spinning too slowly or not at all.
This fan can be purchased in any computer store. Just remove it and take it with you.
