This is a protection indication. Either the power amp pac is defective or the power regulator circuit is faulty. In either case you are looking at about $40-$50 in parts plus the local labor rate for the repair.

Hi. I have a panasonic SA-PT860 dvd theatre system. Everytime you turn the on/off button it states that I have an F61 fault. I have looked in the manual and it says to check speaker connections. I have...


- Is your system playing in spite of this error?

Assuming that this is the model complete with "receiver" and speakers+sub and you use these and the original connections. You could try and measure your ohm level on each speaker to control if there is a bad/blown speaker. The Ohm level should be the same on each speaker - roughly.
- Hope this will get you somewhere!

I HAVE A PANASONIC CD STEREO SYSTEM AND THE DISPLAY SHOW: F61; WHATS THE MEANING???


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...

After hooking up stereo system in the house we turned it on the console shut off and displayed a code of F-61 unable to locate manual need assistaance to get my music going


Hey there,

Let me guess. You have a Panasonic SA series receiver.

I hate to say this, but the music is going to be delayed. You are not alone with the dread 'f61' error. It occurs for a lot of reasons. The cause is a burned out IC.

But it's fixable. Learn more:

I did a little more searching on the causes (and solution) of your 'F61' error.

According to the manual, it is a fault with AC power or the speakers. (Not!!)

According to Panasonic Customer Support (and I quote):

"Thank you for your email enquiry.

To clarify, the F61 that has been displayed is a self-diagnostic fault
code, requiring attention by a qualified engineer. This is not an inherent
fault with the product but a guide for the engineer to know where, within
the product, he should seek the cause of the problem.

We suggest that the product is submitted to either your retailer or to an
authorised service agent for attention. Those in your local area can be
found through our website;"


(This is a copy of the e-mail response, the spelling errors are theirs, not mine.)

Thereal cause is heat. There is an Integrated Circuit (STK470-050) thathas become notorious for failing throughout the Panasonic SA Series.

WhilePanasonic's suggestion to take it to a qualified dealership does meritconsideration, they may charge you morethan it would cost to replace.

Ifyou were inclined to fix it yourself,. If you also have experience with a soldering gun andpatience, you can fix it yourself for under Forty dollars.

Belowis a link to a discussion page devoted to 'F61' Errors. Some of themgot tired of waiting and found a way to fix it themselves.

Click here for the Stereo411 site.
What you're looking for is a post by 'ragtop67gto'.
It's an excellent step by step of the fix. The decisionto fix it will depend on your comfort level with a soldering gun. Butit will be an informed decision.

Click here for a source to purchase the IC chip.

Bottom Line:
  • If you know your way around the interior of a stereo, you can fix it yourself. (90% effective)
  • Bring it to an authorized service agent (90% effective)
  • Other than that, it's history.
Just trying to be thorough. If you need further info let me know. (click the ASK button)

Even though the fix is involved, it's still a fix, don't forget to Rate this response.
Mike

(Personal Note: If you thought about fixing it yourself, even for a second; Go for it, little risk, high reward.)

I HAVE A PANASONIC STEREO SYSTEM, MODEL#SA-PM11 THAT I PURCHASED WITHIN THE LAST FEW YEARS BUT I RECENTLY MOVED AND SOME HOW THE POWER CORD THAT PLUG'S INTO THE BACK MUST HAVE FOUND A NEW HOME-----HOW...


This is a standard cord for "Panasonic" units. It is essentially D shaped with an indent. Any electronics store should have these as universal replacement cords. They should cost $3-$5.

I have a panasonic cd stereo system SA-AK640 that will not operate properly and is showing the error code F61


This is an indication that the output amp pac(s) have a problem. Expect a parts cost in the range of $25-$45. Add in the local labor rate for the full repair cost.

Panasonic stereo SA-PM28 displays fault code F61 then switches off


Hi dearnley1

The error code your unit is presenting relates to either a speaker cabling fault or a fault speaker. Sometimes, it is neither, and may be a fault inside the unit. Needless to say the unit is in protection moe to prevent more damage occurring. Check you speaker wiring for any short circuits or frayed wires. If all appears to be ok, disconnect the wires from the unit and see if it turns on and stays on then. If it still presents f61 with speakers and cable disconnected, then I am afraid that you may need to take the unit to a Kenwood service center near to you for an inspection . Good luck

regards
Graeme
