SOURCE: disc tray 1 is blinking with 2 ovals around it, tray not in right Panasonic SA-HT680

I had a jammed disc that was causing this same error message. To remove the jammed disc, remove the top by removing the screws and then you can remove the stuck/jammed discs. For the Panasonic SC-PT750 there are 7 screws, three small silver ones on the back, then 4 black ones, two on each side, all philips head. Once you have that off, gently pry it off starting from the back, the cover is actually hinged into the front plastic piece of the player.

Thanks for your help, but I couldn't wait any longer and took care of the problem. This is what I did to fix it: With the dvd player unplugged, I removed all the screws and opened up the dvd player to make sure that there was no dvd stuck inside. Once I confirmed that there were no obstructions, I then proceeded to plug in the dvd player so I can see how the player reacted to the error messages. I noticed that every time I pressed the eject button, the section where the sensor reads the disc was slightly moving but not fully reacting. So right above the laser sensor apparatus, there's a white plastic circular piece and I moved that around a few times and it did the trick. Problem solve, the dvd player is working like a champ. Hope this helps if someone out there that has the same problem.

Most F61 code failures are caused by a defective output ic.If all speakers are disconnected and F61 still comes up the IC is 100% bad.Needs to be serviced.Not an issue that can be fixed by homeowner.

The F61 fault means the fan needs to be replaced. My system had the same problem and the fan was making a terrible noise. I had this repaired and the system is as good as new. Although I have the SA-HT995 system, it sounds like the same fault.

Still under warranty? Get it fixed for free....

My SA HT 730 displays INIT on main unit and tray will not open. Can you help me? I love my panasonic.


INIT = Initiate, reason why you cannot open it is because it is having an error starting up and it is not completing

SA-HT740 Broken gear


You probably can get the parts from Tritronics, but as far as I know, there aren't hard-copy manuals normally made for any of the newer products. The only paper available nowadays are the users manuals... The service manuals are on-line at Panasonic and available only to authorized repair centers. Sorry.

I'm curious - how in the heck did a gear break in the thing??? There's nothing strong enough in the drive system to do that (either the motors would sieze or belts slip).

DVD HO1 error, and tray is jammed - how do i change the mode to External Port (iPod)?


It means that there's a misaligned disk inside. You need to

1. Unplug it and shake it side-to-side.
2. Then turn it on and press the open/close.
3. If it doesn't open, goto step 1.
4. When it opens, get the disks out, use disk exchange to try to get them all out.
5. Turn it off, unplug it, shake it again and make sure that there isn't another loose disk, if there is, then open it and get it out.

This is a known flaw in certain Panasonic DVD changers. Good luck

Panasonic SA-HT680 Home theater problem


Try these steps to reset the unit. I got these from the Panasonic Cust. Service # 1800-211-7262
1. Unplug the unit power.
2. Wait 2-3 mins before replugging the unit.
3. Turn it on.
4. If the display shows INIT / PLEASE WAIT, Press and HOLD the Tune Mode (STOP) button on the main unit. At the same time press #10 (Channel button) in the remote control. They have to be pressed & held simultaneously for atleast 5 seconds. Wait till the INIT / Please Wait display disappears.
5. Once the message disappears, RESTART the main unit by pressing the POWER button OFF / ON.
6. If it does not work, try several times. If it does not work, contact a local repair shop (call them to find out a repair shop near you). If the repair shop wont do it for you, call them back - thats what they told me.

Init please wait


I've just spent the last 3 nights trying to fix that same issue with my sa-ht670 player. I ended up pulling out the dvd tray assembly, and making sure there wasn't anything broken inside or obstructing other pieces. Come to find out, my 1 year old had pulled on one of the trays and it pulled the tray off it's tracks. After that, it would just go to "init please wait" forever. I pulled the side track cover off and aligned the tracks manually. Everything had to be absolutely perfect or else you'd get nothing. After the fact, I realized that there were two holes in the bottom of the player that you can take a spare small gear (which is attached to the plastic cover on top of the dvd tray assembly) and stick it in there and manually adjust the tray positions to make sure everything is aligned properly. After messing with it three days, it ended up being quite simple to fix. Everything works like a charm now. If you need details, feel free to email me.
