My Panasonic CD Stereo System, model SA-CH484 (about ten years old) is refusing to function but is displaying "F61" on its digital display. I presume this is a fault number but I haven't a clue where the manual is to check it out. Can you help

Your Panasonic SA-VX uses a Switch Mode Power Supply ( SMPS ). Do not ever attempt to fix it yourself unless you are well versed in electronics. ou can damage the system seriously. Seek professional help.

After hooking up stereo system in the house we turned it on the console shut off and displayed a code of F-61 unable to locate manual need assistaance to get my music going


Hey there,

Let me guess. You have a Panasonic SA series receiver.

I hate to say this, but the music is going to be delayed. You are not alone with the dread 'f61' error. It occurs for a lot of reasons. The cause is a burned out IC.

But it's fixable. Learn more:

I did a little more searching on the causes (and solution) of your 'F61' error.

According to the manual, it is a fault with AC power or the speakers. (Not!!)

According to Panasonic Customer Support (and I quote):

"Thank you for your email enquiry.

To clarify, the F61 that has been displayed is a self-diagnostic fault
code, requiring attention by a qualified engineer. This is not an inherent
fault with the product but a guide for the engineer to know where, within
the product, he should seek the cause of the problem.

We suggest that the product is submitted to either your retailer or to an
authorised service agent for attention. Those in your local area can be
found through our website;"


(This is a copy of the e-mail response, the spelling errors are theirs, not mine.)

Thereal cause is heat. There is an Integrated Circuit (STK470-050) thathas become notorious for failing throughout the Panasonic SA Series.

WhilePanasonic's suggestion to take it to a qualified dealership does meritconsideration, they may charge you morethan it would cost to replace.

Ifyou were inclined to fix it yourself,. If you also have experience with a soldering gun andpatience, you can fix it yourself for under Forty dollars.

Belowis a link to a discussion page devoted to 'F61' Errors. Some of themgot tired of waiting and found a way to fix it themselves.

Click here for the Stereo411 site.
What you're looking for is a post by 'ragtop67gto'.
It's an excellent step by step of the fix. The decisionto fix it will depend on your comfort level with a soldering gun. Butit will be an informed decision.

Click here for a source to purchase the IC chip.

Bottom Line:
  • If you know your way around the interior of a stereo, you can fix it yourself. (90% effective)
  • Bring it to an authorized service agent (90% effective)
  • Other than that, it's history.
Just trying to be thorough. If you need further info let me know. (click the ASK button)

Even though the fix is involved, it's still a fix, don't forget to Rate this response.
Mike

(Personal Note: If you thought about fixing it yourself, even for a second; Go for it, little risk, high reward.)

I get an error code F61 on a CD Stereo System SA-PM11


This is a protection indication. Either the power amp pac is defective or the power regulator circuit is faulty. In either case you are looking at about $40-$50 in parts plus the local labor rate for the repair.

I have a panasonic cd stereo system SA-AK640 that will not operate properly and is showing the error code F61


This is an indication that the output amp pac(s) have a problem. Expect a parts cost in the range of $25-$45. Add in the local labor rate for the full repair cost.
