I love this system. It is inexpensive and puts out some good sound. I've already taken it in to replace the fan in the player though, and now the rear speakers are wierd.
When the rear speakers are chosen in the surround settings, they buzz. It isn't the speakers because I switched out the center speaker with one of the rear speakers, and the center speaker made the same buzz noise. It also doesn't matter what level the volume is, it makes the same buzz regardless. Music still comes out of it, but it is slightly delayed and sounds echo-ish. I think this means it is an output problem. Do I need to take it in to get it repaired?
Thanks for any help or ideas!!!

Have you tried it with no speakers attached? Was it overheating? If not, why replace the fan?
F61 usually means the amp has detected a short or a severe microprocessor error.
Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on; or it may turn on but produce no audio to the speakers.
Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.
You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.
If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.
If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.
sir i think ypur unit is ok and run correctly... try to check your speaker maybe your speaker got open or burnt... you can test it by swapping your speaker to another unit or you can test your speaker using multitester...just point your selector at resistance test a speaker has 8ohms reading....
the speaker has a two terminal.. a positive terminal and a negative terminal... your multitester has a two lead.. red lead which is a positive and a black lead which is negative.. Multimeter probe sockets (NL Graphics)
Insert the probes of a digital
multimeter in the correct sockets of the multimeter. There may be
several different sockets for the probes depending on what parameters
you're measuring. Look for the sockets marked "impedance" or displaying
the ohm symbol. Different models and brands of multimeters will vary in
their labeling, so check your multimeter's manual if you're not certain
about which one to use.
Select the range for the
multimeter. Since you'll be measuring fairly low resistance levels with a
speaker, choose a range that will encompass readings in the 2-16 ohm
range. It's extremely rare to find speakers that will have an impedance
outside of that range.
Touch one probe to each of the
speaker terminals and check the reading. This will be the impedance of
the speaker. Record the measurement, and when you're done, turn off the
multimeter to preserve the batteries for the next time you need the
It sounds to me like you both are having a problem with a capacitor going bad. some capacitors act as a noise filter and it sounds like you both have a bad one. If you are any good with a volt-ohm meter that reads capacitors you should check them to make sure they are at their proper values which will be posted on the capacitor. then replace it. if you dont know how to use a v-o meter then take it to a shop and have them replace it
Are you using the same cord for the mp3 player as you are for the cd and radio? There could be a patch cord problem or it could be the output jack of the mp3 player. If using headphones with the mp3 player works both right and left then it must be the patch cord. Try using a different patch cord.
The speakers can be driven to make sound by several different power devices, These devices can be FET's or Transistors, or a output Integrated circuit.
All of these devices can be damaged by shorting the speaker wires I suspect thats what has happened in your case...
The manufacturers provide internal p[rotection and this can be in the form of a fuse which will beaccessible from the ouitside of the case.
Have a good look to see if there are any fuses there that are blown that you can replace yourself...Please replace with the same value type as fitted already...
If you cant locate any blown fuses then it will need to be taken to a service person to strip the cover off to see if there are any fuses that can be replaced inside....otherwise it will need to be repaired especially if the output device is damaged in any way..
If you are lucky it should be just a fuse as the "wifey staple" would most likely have shorted out omly the one channel, and as you say both channels dead then its more likely to be a fuse that supplies all the output stage devices that has disrupted..
Try all of the spaekers on the channel you know works. If all are fine, swap the speaker lines to test them. Is the input a DVD player on RCA cables? A bad signal cable from a component can be a source for problem. Connect the speakers directly to the amp(if possible) bypassing the sub box. If all works without the box, suspect bad crossover or in the self-powered boxes a bad amp.
