Re: My Panasonic SC-A240 shuts down displaying the error...

Several components in the power supply maybe faulty, especially Tranisitor Q5110, Resistor R5114 and Diode D5102 on the power supply board. Check and replace these and also resolder the regulator IC's on the heatsink.

What does f61 mean?

F61 is an error code.
It will automatically shuts down your unit.
This is very common on your unit.

Try to checked if the fan is working or not.
I have repaired some unit before, this is the caused why f61 appeared.
The symptom is shutting down the unit after a few minute.
If the fan is not working it will shuts off automatically to avoid further damaged to your output I.C.

If confirmed that the fan is working then I've suspect that your output I.C. is shorted.
This is quit technical and need to send to repair shop to isolate the faulty parts.
The output IC of your unit is RSN series and quite expensive.

Pls rate my help.

Thaks for using fixya...

I got panasonic- sa-ak240 stereo system i get F61 on the display then it shuts down to standbye.

F61 is an Error's basically indicating that something inside the stereo is malfunctioning or broken.

the stereo has gone into Protection mode.....could mean there is Direct Current on one of the output rails....most likely the Power Amplifier IC in your Stereo has gone bad....a new one should solve this'll need to send it in to Panasonic for replacement of the faulty parts.

F61? how do i fix it...................everytime i turn my panasonic sc-ak340 on i get a error code that reads f61 and then my system shuts down by itself..can this be fixed?

I've encountered that kind of problem.
f61 appear on the screen then shuts down the unit.
The very common defect is your fan, output ic (rsn series).
First check the fan if it is in good condition (disassembling the component is quite technical it need a lot of care).
sometimes the fan is full of dirt that's why it will not work properly which the system sense and uttered the unit to switch of avoid further damaged.
If you confirm that the fan is working properly I will suggest you to bring your unit to a qualified technician/service center because replacing the output i.c. is more technical.

F61 problem

DIsconnect sound Amplifier ic (RSN).After removal of the ic if the unit works o.k offcourse without sound than replace ic.If still f61 than sound ic is o.k and check voltege regulators in power supply.You can check dc detect line if it gets activated.
F61 is mainly two resons 1st sound ic or power supply problem in power bord which send signal to system control to shut down the power in order not to damege more.

Hi, I'll quote directly from the service manual Error display - F61 Problem condition - When POWER is switched on, power become off automatically. During normal operation, if DC DET become L, PCNT shall become L and the error display on the left shall be displayed. (IC501) What *I* think that they are trying to say is that the protection circuit will activate if DC appears on the speaker terminals. IC501 the audio output chip may be faulty.
