Check to make sure none of the speaker wires are touching the case. If not, unhook them all and see if problem persists. If it does then the amp is damaged. If not then plug one spkr in at a time and check to see which one is causing the problem.

Re: main unit will not stay on

The promblem could be that one of the two fans stops running. This causes a feedback response to the circuit system and shuts down with F61 error. Replacing the fan is easy and should not cost any more than £5

I got a panasonic sc-bt100 from sears used but i cant connect the rear speakers i think im missing a part do you need to put something on the dvd player so the rear speakers could work?

There should be a "module" that you slip into a slot on the back of the main SC-BT100 unit...this is the transmitter that sends the signal to the rear speaker unit. The rear speakers, while "wireless" to the main unit, are wired to the separate unit that should have come with your set-up.

No surround sound in tv or vcr mode

For some reason this Panasonic unit does not offer surround sound in TV or VCR mode.  I guess their engineers decided it wasnt an important feature!!
