I had the same problem and when I talked to the Panasonic Tech they told me to check my speaker connections and once I convinced them that I have not touched the connections since I originally connected the speakers. they then told me that it was a power supply fault and I needed to take it to a dealer. I did a little research and found that the cooling fan was not working, which is another reason for the F61 fault. Check to make sure your fan is running. If not, it is very easy to replace, two screws and one connection.

Error code f61 on my panasonic sa/ht930, Kindly advise on these, Thanks.


F61 usually means the amp has detected a short or a severe microprocessor error.


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a possible root cause for intermittent shutdown.

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!

Im having a erorr saying f61


F61 is and amp error code. probably needs an output ic. could be a shorted speaker or bad cooling fan. Disconnect all speakers and turn it on. if the fans run and it still displays f61 then odds are very good an amp ic is bad.

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

Graeme
