    is there a fix for this?

  • Seattleray Apr 09, 2008

    I have the same problem. I bought mine in January of 2007 and on Feb 2 of 2008 the unit went out. Panasonic just blew me off when I called them telling me that my year was up. I have had it in a shop for three weeks now and the guy says that it is the power supply but since it is so new he cannot get parts. I agree that there should be a recall but I don't think that Panasonic cares about customer satisfaction anymore. I would certainly not buy another product by them.

    when turn on lasts about 5 secs before error f61 shows

  • Anonymous Jun 11, 2008

    My Panasonic home system suddenly stopped working tonight with the same F61 message. I bought mine in December 2006 from Sears and it has worked fine until this abrupt stop tonight. I'm not sure what to do but it sure makes me wonder if Pansonic is no longer a brand to trust.

  • tova1 Jun 21, 2008

    I have system model #SCHT820V that had the f61 code come up after a lightning storm and it says there is a power supply problem, it keeps powering on and off and I can't get rid of the demo mode it reads that you would see in a store.

    This is for Julie. I took your advice and filed a complaint yesterday with the BBB. Can you give me any idea how long it took Panasonic to get back to you? Good looking out thought. I had not considered BBB

    I just wanted to add my name to the list - I have contacted Panasonic this evening, and after further research, finding this site, I have submitted my claim with the BBB.


    Thanks for all the help - and like everyone else, this is clear that it is a recall issue but I think they imagine its cheaper to deal with this on a case by case basis. Modle SC - PT750.

  • Seattleray Jul 17, 2008

    Listen up, had the same problem with the F-61 code and could not get it fixed. Tried the solution of filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. It worked! Just got a call from Panasonic and they could not have been nicer. Guess they didn't need the bad PR. Will fix for free.

I have the f61 code on a panasonic surround sound. should both fans spin on power up?


Pretty sure both fans should turn. If the unit senses the fan not turning, it will shut down as you are describing. Try taking the label off of the fan so you can see the bearing, and put a couple drops of oil in there. This sometimes get them to turn freely again.

Turn on dvd panasonic sc-ht440 the display see me f61


Hi, 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.'''Hope it helped.

Have a nice day..

F61? how do i fix it...................everytime i turn my panasonic sc-ak340 on i get a error code that reads f61 and then my system shuts down by itself..can this be fixed?


I've encountered that kind of problem.
f61 appear on the screen then shuts down the unit.
The very common defect is your fan, output ic (rsn series).
First check the fan if it is in good condition (disassembling the component is quite technical it need a lot of care).
sometimes the fan is full of dirt that's why it will not work properly which the system sense and uttered the unit to switch of avoid further damaged.
If you confirm that the fan is working properly I will suggest you to bring your unit to a qualified technician/service center because replacing the output i.c. is more technical.

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.

DISPLAY STARTS OK THEN F61 APPEARS THEN STEREO SWITCHES OFF


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.

Turns off


My system does the same thing with F61 displaying for 5 seconds before shutting off. I took the fan in the rear off, and noticed that it came on to the touch but didnt stay on continuously. However, when it came on It started performing normally. So, I also noticed that the insides where the fan was located became warm when no air was blowing on it. System will shut off to protect itself. Dont know how to get fan off yet. But fan for my model is sold on Panosonic Website. Not very expensive if you know how to install. Around $17.00 for fan itself. If someone knows how to install , please send message.

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.
