F61 is either a speaker unhooked or a "sticky" fan. Turn off at mains.........Make sure all speaker connections are sound and blow compressed air (available in a can) into the fan. (Do not try and lubricate the fan spindal as this will make it worse). This should fix it. Turn back on at mains and all should be OK.

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. from overheating.
If confirmed that the fan is working then I've suspect that your output I.C./pre-amplifier circuit is faulty. 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.
my dear friend. this error message means something is broke on the audio power.
the unit give that message when the chipset find fix current or signal on any audio channel.
the most common means you have to change the audio amplifier unit. sorry but i know is the true.
The F61 is the shorthand for protect mode. This indicates a problem with the output amplifier section. I don't have a listing for your specific model, but a similar one HT95 lists IC501 as the output amp chip. Check for the marking on the large black IC attached to the heatsink it may be RSN311W. If so, this can be ordered using part number: RSN311W64D-P for $95.20 from tritronicsinc.com.
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.
The F61 indicates protect mode. There is a problem with the output stage of the amplifier section and the unit shuts down to prevent further damage. This unit will require service of the amp section. You can try to contact Panasonic for the service manual.
The output amp pac is an RSN311W64D at a cost of $95 plus shipping.
I have just struck this problem on a friends unit and here is what I did
Disconnect DVD player and all accessories and connections
Problem still occurs
Open machine ( remove three screws from back and slide top cover off. inspection of the inside top cover shows a black patch just above the fan unit
manually spin fan
power up unit and f61 no longer shows up
I think this miaght be a problem with the fan not spinning up at start and the machine then shuting down
I will fit a new fan and see what happens
Output IC is defective.Not much to do except have the main unit serviced.Output IC is rather costly.Before taking it for service, disconnect all speakers and power on.In F61 comes up IC is definetly bad.If unit works reconnect 1 speaker at a time(with power off) and retest each time.Repair bad speaker .
