Question about Panasonic SC-HT995W System
Think I got it. Check your fan. Power it on and see if the fan spins for a few seconds and then stops. This is why mine kept giving me the F61 code and powering down. Remove the cover and use an air duster on the fan. This may not be enough so if you must, remove the fan (two screws + 2 clips) and pop it out of its housing. Dust the blades off and gently pull the fan away from its center as if you were trying to separate the two. There should be about a 2 or 3 mm gap there now. Dust that out and I even sprayed some lube (WD40) in for good measure. Put it all back together and make sure the fan spins and is quiet when you power up your system.
So far it's working for me. Good luck!

Using AC1603 description as a guide, I had success in eliminating the F61 err code. An additional step I took was to peel off the label (very carefully keeping it in one piece) and apply 1 drop of WD40 to the exposed 'bearing' that is under the label, being careful to only apply the wd40 to the bearing area and not the flat portion where the label will be reapplied too. Listening to the music now.

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.

I get this error usually once during a movie. Sometimes it is 10 minutes into it, sometimes it is an hour, and the only thing I have ever been able to do to get it to work, is to unplug the black power cord from the unit, for 20 seconds, and then reconnect it, and it usually works for the remainder of the movie. Would like to see a better fix, however!!

I had the same problem it took four or five e-mails to find the fans
I found them at the site below
P/N. L6FAJCCH0007 FAN MOTOR (THIS IS THE REAR FAN)
P/N. L6FAYYH0001 FAN UNIT (THIS IS THE SIDE FAN)
Hope this helps
