Bad / old wore out parts in the power supply. Some parts actually need an electrical flow throgh them to maintain stability. If there is no power through some parts like capacitors they tend to go bad. More then likely bad caps.

Is not work it is show f61 what dos this mine and how to fix it


The F61 error on Technics audio equipment will depend on the type of unit. However, it could be a problem with the power amplifier IC or with the cooling fan. (If it's the fan, you might be able to clear the error by pressing and holding the power button until the fan starts to spin.)

Please add a comment with the model number of your audio equipment for more information.

I hope this helps.

Sl-eh790 compactdusc changer


Have you opened the case?

Inside the actual cd drive unit there should be a couple of small rubberband like belts. You can try replacing them.

It may help.

If that doesn't work ,it may be time for a replacement.

I have a tendancy to hang on to old audio equipment long after it should have been replaced. It's just hard to let them go!

Good luck with it!

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!

Technics su-z65


Hello
Your Tchnics is too old model and it has power transistors are used in output section. The output power is rated as 50Watts/channel/4Ohms. You can connect extra speakers to this left and right outputs, such a sway that the impedence should not go bellow 4 Ohms. Its repair book informs me that if any of the output transistors has gone out, it will not be available any more, and no substitutions cam be done. So be care when connecting more speakers. OK.

My technics hi-fi separates sL-EH790 is not coming on just saying f61 then going off


Hi Shelly,

"F61" is an error code for short and/or overload detected by the processor upon self check.
First thing you have to try to eliminate this kind of symptoms is by disconnecting all of the inputs and speakers connected from the unit then turn it on without them. Let me know if the symptoms still persist...

SUV500 2-Channel Amplifier: Hi! can I connect another technics cd-player,sl...


yes you can connect another cd player to the DAT input of your amp.
input connections like DAT, TUNER, CD, AUX etc (except phono) is just to differentiate between what sources are connected, the amp cannot tell what source is connected and will output the sound no problem.

as for the remote operation, if the 2 technics cd players are switched on at the same time they're going to do what you command from the remote together but you'll obviously be listening to 1 at a time.

Technics F61 error, can you please tell me what this means?


F61 is the "shorthand" for protection mode for Technics units. Either the regulator IC or the output AMP-PAC IC has failed. Expect a parts cost between $40 -$100 for the repair depending upon which IC has failed.
