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

Pull up previous posts, either by type in the Brand name to your set in its search box, or view it in Mosaic / Timeslide / Flipcard option. Select view option by the drop-down view box, at the top left or the display window.

F61 error message


F61 IS THE ERROR CODE FOR A FAULT IN THE AMPLIFIER STAGE OF THE UNIT, if the power fan or supply is okay then THE MOST LIKELY CULPRIT IS THE AUDIO OUTPUT IC, WHICH IS A MULTI LEGGED DEVICE SCREWED TO A PIECE OF METAL USED TO COOL IT, IN PANASONICS ITS PREFIX WILL PROBABLY BE "RSN" BUT IT COULD BE "STK", MAKE A NOTE OF THE NUMBER AND SEARCH ON LINE, DONT FORGET TO CLEAN OFF THE OLD HEATSINK COMPOUND ON THE HEATSINK AND REPLACE WITH FRESH.f61 means theres is a fault with audio output ic, usually there is dc on one of the speaker output rails, replacing the audio output ic will usually cure this but check speakers and leads for shorts before reconnecting to the unit

My Home Theater System is displaying F61,it's a panasonic SA - HT740


The problem is not the fan but either the amp pac or the regulator. If you can update this with the model number of your unit (SA-xxx), I can get you the probable part and cost.

Thanks,
Dan

My panasonic turns on but shows the letter f61 what does that mean?


F61 just means 'power fault'
Generally a fault with either audio power amp ic (IC 501) or power supply ic (IC 502).

May also be the fan if it has one make sure it is clean and can spin freely.
Hope this helps. Thanks

Hi,

F61 error codes could either be IC501 or the regulator (IC502) in the power supply section.

For reference, pls view these two (2) posts here and here of similar concern on other models.

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.
