Question about Panasonic Home Theater System System
Turns on shuts off. very dissapointed. unit was very expensive and dealer refuses to help. any solutions?
SOURCE: f61 fault
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).

The F61 error is an amplifier failure.This error can be caused by a blown channel or even a failure in the power supply which causes the unit to detect an amplifier failure because the power supply is not supplying the proper voltage to the amplifier. On more rare occasions this can be caused by broken solder connections in the amplifier and/or power supply. Without having the receiver in front of me to troubleshoot it is impossible to tell you exactly what the cause is.
It can be fixed, but it will require some decent electronic skills. If you do not have a multimeter, soldering equipment, and an understanding of electronic components it would be best to let a service center look at it for you. If you do have these tools and would like to try and fix it yourself, let me know and I may be able to guide you thru the troubleshooting process.

SOURCE: 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 61 error means the failure of FAN
most probably dust in the fan made it to stop working so clean the dust and connect the fan to an external supply of 12v(using red and black wire) for 5 minutes and reconnect it to the unit otherwise replace the fan with new one.
Surely this will solve the problem.
