If you want to have your system serviced, take it to the Sony authorised servce rep. This unit is mainly serviced at the board level. Independent service shops will not have the necessary setup and boards on hand to properly service your system.

It is very common that the power supply, and or the output stage fails in these systems.

5 CD changer, model sa-ak600. What does code f61 indicate?


F61 means that the power amp has something wrong with it.
It could mean the IC501 has failed or that there is something wrong to the power supply to it.
The good news is the service manual is free online. You can get it by simply putting the model number into google and searching for the PDF of it.

Panasonis SC HT70 Plays for about 1hour then comes up with F61 Fault code


This fault code means the speaker cables may have shorted, or the speakers are not the correct resistance (ohms) Are you using the speakers that came with the unit? If not, make sure the ohms rating of the speakers you are using are the same as the factory speakers. If they are the same, the unit may just be overheating, make sure it is in a well ventilated area, and dust-free.

What does F61 mean


Hi Georgina,


F61 is an error code(protect error code in other brand) for panasonic home theater system. This will trigger if the unit gone to overload to avoid further damaged to other parts. This code is quite technical if your not handy with electronics. However I will say to you the common caused of this error code.


1. Output IC - this is the most common caused of the error code. Once shorts happened to this IC, it will trigger the error code. Exposure to high volume and/or running in the long time will caused this IC to shorts and produce an overload.


2. Shorted Speaker - if one of your speakers shorts, error code will appear also. This may isolate by disconnecting the speaker to the set and play the unit *****. If the symptom still there the fault came from the unit itself.


3. Shorted Inputs - inputs connector is also prone to shorts due to frequent bending and pulling. To isolate this from fault, disconnect all the inputs connected to the unit like the aux input, antenna, mic, etc.


4. Faulty power supply - once gone to out-of-regulation condition, the error code will appear to protect the most expensive parts from further damaged. Bad solder joints in this section is also to consider.


5. Faulty Fan and its circuitry - F61 will appear only after a minute of operation not upon powering on the unit. Check the fan if working or not...


I would advice you to send the unit to your local Panasonic service center and leave the expert isolate the symptoms.


Also, check if your unit is under warranty period, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it forfree.


Hope I helped you.

Good luck and have a great day!

What does f61 mean?


F61 is an error code.
It will automatically shuts down your unit.
This is very common on your unit.

Try to checked if the fan is working or not.
I have repaired some unit before, this is the caused why f61 appeared.
The symptom is shutting down the unit after a few minute.
If the fan is not working it will shuts off automatically to avoid further damaged to your output I.C.

If confirmed that the fan is working then I've suspect that your output I.C. is shorted.
This is quit technical and need to send to repair shop to isolate the faulty parts.
The output IC of your unit is RSN series and quite expensive.

Pls rate my help.

Thaks for using fixya...

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

F61 error


The F61 error indicates that the unit is in "protect" mode. This means that an error condition was detected in the amp section and the unit has shutdown. This is usually caused by a defective amp chip. Expect a parts cost in the range of $60-$90.

Panasonic Sa Ht 70 Problem F61


Hi, F61 usually means that the unit has some sort of DC error internally. One of the amplifiers could have failed. The HT70 is an older unit and dry joints around the voltage regulator and power amplifier is also very common. Also check that the fan is in good order.The unit will most likely have to be checked by a professional tech.
