Re: F61 error message

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.

What does f61 mean?

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.

If confirmed that the fan is working then I've suspect that your output I.C. is shorted.
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.

When the machine is turned on there is a humming sound and an F61 message what does that mean?

The F61 message means that the system is blown. Try reading the manual to see more in depth what they say to do. Also, try unplugging the system, leave it sitting for about 5-10 minutes so the electricity will fade out of it, and disconnect anything going into it (IE speakers, inputs) anything that will disconnect, and then plug it all back in. But according to knowlage and research, it means its blown.

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.

To my knowledge, an F61 error is a blown fuse. A workaround is to replace the fuse with the same value but specify slow blow.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

F61 error

I had the same problem, and I had to replace the fan on the unit. The fan would not turn on at all, so the computer would tell the unit to turn itself off. After the fan was replaced (which is relatively simple) it works like new.

F61 tells you its a power source problem according to the manual. to all F61 error it is very likley that the str470-050a reg legs desolderd and have broken away from the main body of the regulator giving you the f61 and shut down.
