F61 is the "shorthand" for protection mode for Technics units. Either the regulator IC or the output AMP-PAC IC has failed. Expect a parts cost between $40 -$100 for the repair depending upon which IC has failed.

Is not work it is show f61 what dos this mine and how to fix it


The F61 error on Technics audio equipment will depend on the type of unit. However, it could be a problem with the power amplifier IC or with the cooling fan. (If it's the fan, you might be able to clear the error by pressing and holding the power button until the fan starts to spin.)

Please add a comment with the model number of your audio equipment for more information.

I hope this helps.

I have a technics stereo but f61 error on it how do i fix it


F61 is the error code for an amp problem. It may need an amp IC replaced, or, if you're lucky, the may just be bad solder connections on the amp IC's and regulators that are on the heatsink. Most of the technics receivers had an access panel that can be removed from the bottom of the unit, and then you can visually inspect for any bad connections. Check anything that is on the heatsink as these were the biggest problems for this line of receivers.

My technics hi-fi separates sL-EH790 is not coming on just saying f61 then going off


Hi Shelly,

"F61" is an error code for short and/or overload detected by the processor upon self check.
First thing you have to try to eliminate this kind of symptoms is by disconnecting all of the inputs and speakers connected from the unit then turn it on without them. Let me know if the symptoms still persist...

Error F61 on Panasonic Stereo System SA-AK80


HELLO

As far as I can know, F61 means your output IC is dead. Contact a service centre in your locality for repair!

F61 error


The F61 error indicates that the unit is in "protect" mode. This means that an error condition was detected in the amp section and the unit has shutdown. This is usually caused by a defective amp chip. Expect a parts cost in the range of $60-$90.

Panasonic Sa Ht 70 Problem F61


Hi, F61 usually means that the unit has some sort of DC error internally. One of the amplifiers could have failed. The HT70 is an older unit and dry joints around the voltage regulator and power amplifier is also very common. Also check that the fan is in good order.The unit will most likely have to be checked by a professional tech.

Error F61


I have just struck this problem on a friends unit and here is what I did

Disconnect DVD player and all accessories and connections
Problem still occurs
Open machine ( remove three screws from back and slide top cover off. inspection of the inside top cover shows a black patch just above the fan unit
manually spin fan
power up unit and f61 no longer shows up
I think this miaght be a problem with the fan not spinning up at start and the machine then shuting down
I will fit a new fan and see what happens

F61


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.
