Error code F61 on Technics SC-DV150

Dave

Thank you very much for responding to my message. My background is not electronics based. However, I am very practical having spent thirty years in the Construction Industry. For your information the system worked fine after I posted the message and again today. This evening it went back in to fault mode. I noticed that it clicks several times before it switches off. Does this give you a better understanding of what the problem might be. I do have a multimeter in my tool kit but not a small soldering iron (150watts is the smallest) However, I could purchase one as they are cheap. I will await your thoughts before I do anything.

Thank you again for your kind offer of help.

Mike.

Yes, this could be the solder connections on the amp and power supply. You will need to take the unit apart to take the boards out, then reflow all the solder connections that are not a shiny silver color and/or have a ring-like crack around them, or if they look a little grainy. The clicking is the relay going on and off. This could be because the power supply voltages are not constant. It may also need a couple of capacitors replaced in the power supply. If the unit was working for a day or 2 and then it stops, and then it will work again, it is most likely some bad solder connections.

As long as your soldering iron will melt the solder, it should work OK for you to do this. Just be very careful to not make any solder bridges. A solder bridge is when the solder from one pad is leaked over to another pad next to it. Always inspect the circuit board after reflowing a lot of solder connections with a magnifying glass so you have a very good view of every connection. If just one of those solder connections has even a small little string of solder that connects to a solder pad next to it, it can cause serious damage to the unit. It creates a short where there is not supposed to be one.

The information I have given you is based on over 18 years of repairing audio equipment, but that does not mean I am always right when I have not had the chance to see the unit myself. All I can do is guess and tell you the most likely causes, that means that there are other causes and sometimes those other causes are very difficult to isolate without troubleshooting it myself.

I hope this has helped, just let me know if you need more help. I may not get back to this site today, I am spending Thanksgiving with my family here at my home and may be to busy to respond back again today.

Happy Thanksgiving

Dave

Turn on dvd panasonic sc-ht440 the display see me f61


Hi, F61 is and amp error code. probably needs an output ic. could be a shorted speaker or bad cooling fan. Disconnect all speakers and turn it on. if the fans run and it still displays f61 then odds are very good an amp ic is bad.'''Hope it helped.

Have a nice day..

check the fan, if its dusty clean it then run the player. If it works, your in luck. If the fans are moving and f61 still shows up, the D-amp IC is shortened ( inside you will see IC 5000/IC5200 / IC 5300, these needs to be replaced) its the one by the big cooling fins (behind the rear fan)

F61 error code


Sorry to hear about your error code F61

This code refers to a High Limit Temp. condition.
This is most likely caused by the cooling fan.
If the Fan has stopped running or not running at full speed, you will recv. this error message and the temp. reaches high-end limit.
Please check the cooling fan, any possible air flow restrictions and correct running RPM.

Hope this information has helped you.
Readers, please rate your technicians information.
Thanks,

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 code F61 on Technics SC-DV150


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.

Error Message F61


Hi guys,
just had the f61 error code on my home theatre system, now i work with samsung dvds and tv's so the background knowledge is there ( i hope), i dont know if u guys noticed the fans making a noise whenever you switched it on before the fault happened but mine were making a hell of a noise, this prompted me to have a look inside and find 2 fans both of which were very dusty, just a 10 minute clean and a 10 min reassemble and im back up and running on all channels.

hope this helps guys

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.
