    I have exact same error message, I have opened the entire system and I will look for regulator IC.

    Do you think that it could be power amplifier issue(not really input power, but speaker power?

Possible fault is failure of the Regulator IC. It's on a small heatsink by itself.

I think, I know the issue, I am searching for part. It is an IC. Once I fix it I will let you know.

    Hi There,

    I have got service manual and they have recommended couple of parts, including power amplifier IC, I have got the parts and just replaced it, BUT NO LUCK!!!! :(

    At this point, I have already spent $60, and I think I am done trying. I may try service center as last resort.

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 message is effectively a "protect mode" message indicating that a problem was detected and that the system hasbeen shut down to prevent further damage. This is typically caused by a bad output amplifier pac or regulator. If you can post the specific model number, I'll try to get you the part numbers and costs.

SA-HT680 F61 Error

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
