Have to agree with bestdarngood and Benimur that it is the voltage regulator.

Here is good troubleshooting guide.

May come in handy also if you choose to take it to a service technician.

Hi cwg110552,

with the indulgence of bestdarngood...

If I may offer an alternative possibility, either IC501 (as bestdarngood) has posted or the regulator (IC502) in the power supply section.

For reference, pls view this post of a similar concern on another model.

Other possibilities are:
1. fan not turning;
2. cold solder;
3. looses connections;
4. one of the other components/systems hooked up to the power supply is causing a fault (tuner, disc player).

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

This is most likely a power supply problem.
F61 for model SAHT75 = Power amplifier output error or power supply circuit error.
Supply voltage for IC501 (Power Amplifier).
Approx. +60.0V dc at pins 3 & 20.
Approx. -60.0V dc at pins 4 & 21.
A qualified engineer may check the above voltages.
------
Another possible solution might be to hold down the power button until the unit restarts itself a few times, and/or before-hand unplugging the unit from the outlet.


Please be careful when working on any electronic device and let me know if you have any further questions.


Thank you for using Fixya and Good Luck

I kept hitting the disc exhange/eject button to turn the unit on and after a couple of tries it finally opened about half way. The whole reason i wanted to open it was to get the last dvd that i watch out of it. Well in doing so i noticed that there were some discs rattling around up underneath the cd tray (from my 1 1/2 year old). After shaking the unit a couple of times i was able to get the discs out of the underside of the disc tray. When i hit the disc exchange to close the try the unit powered up, closed the tray, and operated fine and i am back to using it like i used to with out any other problems.

Although the Panasonic Home Theater systems are great when they work properly. If your machine displays the "f61" error message, it's likely to be little more than a paper weight for the average person. The inner workings of the machine are rather complex to disassemble for diagnostics. And can take several hours to check all the components. The best advice I can give you is to sell the machine on e-bay as a broken item. If you offer shipping you can get more money for a complete system (speakers & all).

F61 is a problem with the output amplifier pac. It is the equivalent of "protect" mode. The output pac needs to be replaced. I'll look up the part number for you.

F61 error


If memory serves me correctly, the F61 message is teh shorthand for protect mode. There is a problem with the output section that is being detected. The unit shuts down to prevent additional damage to either the amp section or the speakers. I'll look up your specific model for more details. In the meantime, check the speaker wires to be sure that they are not frayed and crossed.

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.
