Re: wavey lines

This may be a problem with the TV rather than the DVD. Usually wavy lines are caused by some of the AC signal leaking into the video signal. It is possible that the DVD player power supply is the source of this as well. Check the filter capacitors in the power supply of the DVD player first.

Error f61 in panasonic sht540

The abnormalities an output or power supply circuit of POWER AMP.

In normal operation, when DCDET2 goes to "L" (Low) (Not during POWER OFF condition), F61 appears on FL Display and PCONT goes to "L" (Low).

This is due to speaker output has DC voltage or fan is not working.

Home theater system, DVD picture freezes

can be a dirty laser eye that can be cleaned with a dvd lens cleaner kit , you can pick them up at any radio shack or electronics store or even wal-mart just go to their electronics dept , most people today own home theater systems and dvd players, and even electronics need to be cleaned from time to time ,so it,s a cheap way of getting the best picture out of your dvd player and it is simple to use ,it looks like a dvd and comes with instructions ,some come with an alcohol fluis that gets put on a little furry brush on the disc ,this brush gets a few drops of alcohol and you put the cleaner disc in the tray and press play , thats all their is to it , thank you for your question if i was able to help you please leave me a nice rating , sincerely glenn mayer

Does not read cd or dvs

Could be many things. But it probably needs a new pick-up (laser). You can try cleaning it with rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab.

Poor picture quality

A lot of "aged" problems relate to the power supply with this type of unit. If you are a handy chap and know what capacitors are you will find that finding and replacing the "dry" caps in the power supply will fix most problems including streaky pix and crackly audio.
