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.

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..

When i turn on my receiver f61 code comes on then it shuts off how do i fix it. Panasonic SC-ht650

Many things can cause the error code f61 on a Panasonic.

Most of them need a service tech to repair. Output IC or voltage regulator....

The one thing you may be able to check is the cooling fan, it should turn on hen the power button is pushed. Make sure it spins freely.

Most often it is the output IC

SC-BT 100 Error Code f61

Had the same problem. Found that the code refers to the cooling fan. Could be that the fan is dusty or not running when the system starts up. I removed the fan with the two screws and reseated the plug. Make certain that the short, black wire (that seems to go to nothing) is securing the plug to the board.

F 71 error

I work at an authorized Panasonic repair center and I think the error code you have may be an "F61" not an "F71".

I have never seen an "F71" so I looked it up in several Panasonic service manuals and could not find an "F71".

The "F61" error is an amp or power supply failure. If this is the error code you are getting, try these two things first.

1. Disconnect the speakers and then turn it on.
If the unit turns on without an error code, you have a bad speaker.
If not, try step 2.

2. Resetting the unit could help, but it is unlikely. Unplug it from the wall outlet for about an hour and then plug it back in. This will reset the microprocessor.

The "F61" error It is a common problem with many different Panasonic receivers.

Your best bet is to take it to an authorized Panasonic service center.

The repair on this type of failure can cost anywhere from $75 all the way up to and over $200, it just depends on the exact problem that is causing it.
If you have a shorted output amp IC it can be on the costly side because some of Panasonics amp IC's cost over $100 just for the part.

If you are a technician and need help troubleshooting it, please give me the model number of the unit and I can tell you of several different things to check.

If you are not a technician with good soldering skills and the proper equipment, there is really nothing else you can do to fix this unit.

You must decide if the cost to repair it is worth it, compared to the cost of a new unit.

If you decide to purchase another unit to replace this one, let me know what type of unit you are looking for and I can advice you on picking out something a little more reliable.

Panasonic makes great car stereos, some of the best. But the home stereo equipment they make is really not up to the same standard. I have been repairing them for over 17 years and I know them very well. For the same price range you can do much better with another brand.

I hope this helps you to either fix this, or to make a better informed decision o what to replace it with. If so, a good rating would really be appreciated.

Thanks, and have a great day,

F61 tells you its a power source problem according to the manual. to all F61 error it is very likley that the str470-050a reg legs desolderd and have broken away from the main body of the regulator giving you the f61 and shut down.
