I have a Panasonic SA-HT 743 5 Disk Home Theater System. I was making a little noise for about a week. Now when I turn it on, I get F61 Error then the system goes dead. Is it work fixing and can I do it myself?

The F61 is the shorthand for protect mode. This indicates a problem with the output amplifier section. I don't have a listing for your specific model, but a similar one HT95 lists IC501 as the output amp chip. Check for the marking on the large black IC attached to the heatsink it may be RSN311W. If so, this can be ordered using part number: RSN311W64D-P for $95.20 from tritronicsinc.com.
Hi, F61 usually means that the unit has some sort of DC error internally. One of the amplifiers could have failed. The HT70 is an older unit and dry joints around the voltage regulator and power amplifier is also very common. Also check that the fan is in good order.The unit will most likely have to be checked by a professional tech.
i had the same problem with the error code f61.There are 2 fans,1 external and 1 internal and were both working but were very clogged up with dust thus working harder.Try cleaning them both it worked for me on the SA-HT 990 model
