Re: f61

Output IC is defective.Not much to do except have the main unit serviced.Output IC is rather costly.Before taking it for service, disconnect all speakers and power on.In F61 comes up IC is definetly bad.If unit works reconnect 1 speaker at a time(with power off) and retest each time.Repair bad speaker .

At power on, displays F61 code and switches off

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. from overheating.

If confirmed that the fan is working then I've suspect that your output I.C./pre-amplifier circuit is faulty.
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...

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.

Typically the F61 error is a protection error indicating that there is a problem with the output amplifier section. The failiing part is usually IC501 (part number RSN311W64D) which costs about $95. Have this unit checked as there are other possibilities.

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
