Hi my panasonic sa vk90d is giving me an f61 problem when i turn it on


Hi,
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 naked. 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 for free.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

F61 will not come on


Hi,
F61 is an error code that shows amplifier output chip is defective and need to be replaced in Panasonic SC-AK640 unit.
Amplifier output chip replacement requires soldering work and local repair shop will do this job as it is not user level repair.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

My panasonic sa ht930 volume when you give me presents on the screen and I f6 1 off


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. from overheating.

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...

Would any one be able to get a part #, cost for the regulator, for my Panasonic SA-CH94M? I believe this is the culprit with the F61 error code. Thanks!


the F61 error on panasonic home theatres can mean 1 of 4 things, its either you have the wrong speakers plugged into the wrong port (yes apparently this matters check correct speaker placement), the fans are not working at all or working poorly (simply clean with circuit board cleaner or replace fan you may have 1 or 2) if none of the above then you have the worst one wich is one of your power amplifier IC chips somewhere on the main circuit board has died (good luck fixing that one) obviously varies from model to model this is based on th SA-HT545 and the SA-PT450. Sometimes a new HDMI cable will solve this issue.

If the cables are good, then the easiest possible fix would be to clean or replace the rear electric fan. I had the same problem and after replacing the fans my unit works like new. I called panasonic to order the fans because these type of fans you can not buy out of any store. The rear fan is also an upgrade to a better bigger fan. Part numbers are: L6FAJCCH0007 $19.12 (side fan) RFKZHT540E $28.35 (Rear fan) total shipped to me was $61.43.

Happy Holdays! Dont forget the feedback! Thanks!

I have a SA-HT545 DVD home theater sound system and it shows F61 error. How can I fix this?


The F61 is the Panasonic code for protect mode. See the link below for an explanation of protect. In your case, there is an output amp pac that has failed. The cost for this ranges from $75-$100 for the part. Please update this if you are interested in repairing this unit and I'll get the exact parts required.

I have an issue with Panasonic SA-HT545 Surround sound system and it keeps coming up with f61 problem and its not working now


I have a similar unit about 18 months old...just wouldn't start and gave me the F61 code. I opened it up and found that the fan on the back was not running properly...the fan's circuit feeds back info to the cpu that it is running...when not it shuts the system down. I powered the fan externally with a 20v power source and ran it for a while off the red and black wires (the yellow wire must be the feedback)and re-installed it. All is working fine...but I'll go out and buy a new FAN.

The F61 indicates a problem detected in the output amp stage and the unit us shutdown to prevent further damage. If you can supply the model number, I can give you the part required and the approximate cost.

Sa-ht545 error code f61- comes up upon statrting


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

As both said ICs get very got first remove bottom steel grill and with the power off and capacitors drained (shorted together with a low ohms resistor or leave unit powered down for a few hours) resolder the ICs legs if there are any signs of cracks aka dry solder joints.
Hope that helps.......

F61 on SA-HT545


I can not find a listing for model SA-HT545. All I can suggest is that there should be a large black IC attached to a heatsink that should be marked STKxxx or something similar. Post that marking here and I'll confirm that it is the correct one to replace. That part is the output amplifier pac and is the most common failure part that generates the symptom you describe.
Keep me posted.
