My SC-HT650 system reads F61. I think I need a new transformer. Where do I find that?

Not the transformer. probably needs a voltage ic or output ic. F61 is a voltage error code. if it was the power tranformer it would not power up at all. It also could be just a bad fan. The fan should start as soon as you turn it on.

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.

Thaks for using fixya...

F61 error code

Sorry to hear about your error code F61

This code refers to a High Limit Temp. condition.
This is most likely caused by the cooling fan.
If the Fan has stopped running or not running at full speed, you will recv. this error message and the temp. reaches high-end limit.
Please check the cooling fan, any possible air flow restrictions and correct running RPM.

Hope this information has helped you.
Readers, please rate your technicians information.

Probaby needs the output ic. F61 is an output/power error code. But check that the fans turn before trying to replace or taking it in to be fixed. If a fan is not turning you will get F61 too.

Im having a erorr saying f61

F61 is and amp error code. probably needs an output ic. could be a shorted speaker or bad cooling fan. Disconnect all speakers and turn it on. if the fans run and it still displays f61 then odds are very good an amp ic is bad.

Sound amplifier ic??******** this guy is talking out of his ***.
F61 relates to fan error. There are two fans, one of them is either spinning too slowly or not at all.
This fan can be purchased in any computer store. Just remove it and take it with you.
