Question about Panasonic SC-AK640 Shelf System

2 Answers

I have a Panasonic Shelf System model SA-AK 640 that displays an error code "F61" when i try to turn the unit on then it shuts off. How do I fix this problem at home as I live in rural Alaska, and the nearest repair shop is about 1000 miles away and would cost me an arm and a leg to get it there!!!

The F61 message is equivalent to a "protect" message. This means that a problem was detected in the final amplification stage and that the unit has been shutdown to prevent further damage. In these particular units, there is a large IC or Amp-pac that is the final ampllifier stage. While it is possible that the voltage regulator IC is defective, the majority of the time it is the amp-pac that is faulty. This part is not cheap. Expect a parts cost in the $75-$95 range.

The issue is with the speaker cable being in the wroung order and thus the amp is htting abnormal ranges and thus will not let you contenue.

Here is more information on what to do going forward in this situation.

1. check your speaker wires make sure there in the right places.

if things are in order you might need to have the unit looked at be a professional locally.

The F61 indicates a problem detected in the output amp stage and the unit us shutdown to prevent further damage. If you can supply the model number, I can give you the part required and the approximate cost.

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.
