    When turned on it reads:

    "Reset DVD"
    The system then turns off.

    I have tried shutdown all power & disconnect - then start up again and also checked and re-connected all cables, especially speaker cables. (As the book says i"F67" is a speaker cable short out problem)

    The player still does same thing as described above.

Same problem here. In my case, it's a problem with the fan. I solved this (for the time being...) by cleaning the fan.

1. remove the 3 screws fixing the cover (at the back of your DT310);
2. the 2 side covers come off easily, but to release the (plastic) top cover, you need to push in the cover at both sides to let it come off the retaining hooks (take a closer look at the side of the top cover, you'll see what I mean);
3. remove the 2 screws holding the remaining metal cover, and move this cover backwards;
4. now you can check, clean or replace the fan.

Putting it back together should be easy now. ;-)

Good luck!

Just had this problem for the second time having cleaned the fan over a year ago - a clean didn't work this time around.
The panasonic part is difficult to find and expensive so I replaced the 12V 100ma fan with a 40mm x 10mm silent type from ebay (

    I spent a couple of hours searching for a suitable fan yesterday and you can either pay £17 and get a replacement original from Panasonic who gave me the number for Seme NEDIS Ltd or buy a slightly higher spec (0.13A versus 0.11A) 40mm 12V RG08J from Maplins for £6.99. it comes with loose wire ends so I simply cut the original two pin fitting about an inch away from fitting and then joined the loose wires of the new fan to the cut and bared ends of the wires coming out of the original 2 pin plug using electrical insulation tape. It works perfectly and runs silently. So total cost of fix was £6.99!

I have just got mine to work fine now, after having the same problem. I turned on the unit, after 1 or 2 seconds, it would say 'DVD RESET', then it would say 'F61', and then just switch off.
I opened the amp, the fan looked clean. Closed the amp.
Then reconnected all speakers (from scratch) and now it's working fine. Some of the connections were frayed, so they had to be twisted again. I think the ehow site says to connect the copper wire to negative terminal, and silver to positive, but in the manual it's the other way round. Just to be clear, I've got:
copper -> +
silver -> --

I had the same issue, i opened up the unit and cleaned the fan and it works now. Thanks for your help

I've had the same problem, well, the F61 and turning of part. In my case it was the fan, so I'd suggest you'd check it, if its running properly.

Switching off of SA-AK-37 Music system

Do you have the manual, I think panasonic put some of there fault codes in the back.

Seems to have lots of people saying it could possibly be a power supply fault, an amp fault or shorted speakers.. Some people have gone to the extreme of actually buying new components and trying to unsolder and resolder to try to fix it themselfs.

Try contacting Panasonic, they will be able to advise you better ot possibly repair / replace the system.
