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.

My technics hi-fi separates sL-EH790 is not coming on just saying f61 then going off


Hi Shelly,

"F61" is an error code for short and/or overload detected by the processor upon self check.
First thing you have to try to eliminate this kind of symptoms is by disconnecting all of the inputs and speakers connected from the unit then turn it on without them. Let me know if the symptoms still persist...

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

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.
