I have a similar unit about 18 months old...just wouldn't start and gave me the F61 code. I opened it up and found that the fan on the back was not running properly...the fan's circuit feeds back info to the cpu that it is running...when not it shuts the system down. I powered the fan externally with a 20v power source and ran it for a while off the red and black wires (the yellow wire must be the feedback)and re-installed it. All is working fine...but I'll go out and buy a new FAN.

Sa-ht545 error code f61- comes up upon statrting


F61 just equal 'power fault'
Generally a fault with either audio power amp ic (IC 501) or power supply ic IC 502.

As both said ICs get very got first remove bottom steel grill and with the power off and capacitors drained (shorted together with a low ohms resistor or leave unit powered down for a few hours) resolder the ICs legs if there are any signs of cracks aka dry solder joints.
Hope that helps.......

Would any one be able to get a part #, cost for the regulator, for my Panasonic SA-CH94M? I believe this is the culprit with the F61 error code. Thanks!


the F61 error on panasonic home theatres can mean 1 of 4 things, its either you have the wrong speakers plugged into the wrong port (yes apparently this matters check correct speaker placement), the fans are not working at all or working poorly (simply clean with circuit board cleaner or replace fan you may have 1 or 2) if none of the above then you have the worst one wich is one of your power amplifier IC chips somewhere on the main circuit board has died (good luck fixing that one) obviously varies from model to model this is based on th SA-HT545 and the SA-PT450. Sometimes a new HDMI cable will solve this issue.

If the cables are good, then the easiest possible fix would be to clean or replace the rear electric fan. I had the same problem and after replacing the fans my unit works like new. I called panasonic to order the fans because these type of fans you can not buy out of any store. The rear fan is also an upgrade to a better bigger fan. Part numbers are: L6FAJCCH0007 $19.12 (side fan) RFKZHT540E $28.35 (Rear fan) total shipped to me was $61.43.

Happy Holdays! Dont forget the feedback! Thanks!

I have a SA-HT545 DVD home theater sound system and it shows F61 error. How can I fix this?


The F61 is the Panasonic code for protect mode. See the link below for an explanation of protect. In your case, there is an output amp pac that has failed. The cost for this ranges from $75-$100 for the part. Please update this if you are interested in repairing this unit and I'll get the exact parts required.

F61 on SA-HT545


I can not find a listing for model SA-HT545. All I can suggest is that there should be a large black IC attached to a heatsink that should be marked STKxxx or something similar. Post that marking here and I'll confirm that it is the correct one to replace. That part is the output amplifier pac and is the most common failure part that generates the symptom you describe.
Keep me posted.

F61 is a problem with the output amplifier pac. It is the equivalent of "protect" mode. The output pac needs to be replaced. I'll look up the part number for you.
