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.

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.
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.

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.
The F61 indicates a problem detected in the output amp stage and the unit us shutdown to prevent further damage. If you can supply the model number, I can give you the part required and the approximate cost.
