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).

Hi, there is a service bulletin from panasonic for this kind of problem, I can't lay my hands on it at the moment, but to cut a long story short, there are other components on the main PWB that need to be replaced because they have been "fried" because the customer has been leaving the unit switched "on" 24/7 instead of setting it back to "standby" when they have finished using it.

WHAT DOES F61 MEAN ON DISPALY SCREEN


Panasonic customer service told me it was a problem with the power supply. I took it to a local repair shop and it turned out to be the cooling fan. Pretty cheap fix. This is the last Panasonic product I will purchase

check the fan, if its dusty clean it then run the player. If it works, your in luck. If the fans are moving and f61 still shows up, the D-amp IC is shortened ( inside you will see IC 5000/IC5200 / IC 5300, these needs to be replaced) its the one by the big cooling fins (behind the rear fan)

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

SHOW ''F61''


This is error code which system control detected either power irrgularities or dc voltage is detected from the speaker out put line.This fault we have noticed that both of them appears same time also.Pls change Amplifier ic TDA8920 and C1740 transistor and 27V1w zener diode.Transistor and zener diode is for voltage regulation and amp ic if the dc detect is active.Usualy change this three components same time.(this all is in power amp section)

F61 problem


DIsconnect sound Amplifier ic (RSN).After removal of the ic if the unit works o.k offcourse without sound than replace ic.If still f61 than sound ic is o.k and check voltege regulators in power supply.You can check dc detect line if it gets activated.
F61 is mainly two resons 1st sound ic or power supply problem in power bord which send signal to system control to shut down the power in order not to damege more.
