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


Generally speaking, an amp protects 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.

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...

DISPLAY STARTS OK THEN F61 APPEARS THEN STEREO SWITCHES OFF


Probaby needs the output ic. F61 is an output/power error code. But check that the fans turn before trying to replace or taking it in to be fixed. If a fan is not turning you will get F61 too.

Turns off immediatly, flashing code F61


Check the main set fan is turning or not once you press power button on main set.
If it is turn then is Digital amplifier IC (as above mentioned) damaged.

If not then is the fan malfunction.

I kept hitting the disc exhange/eject button to turn the unit on and after a couple of tries it finally opened about half way. The whole reason i wanted to open it was to get the last dvd that i watch out of it. Well in doing so i noticed that there were some discs rattling around up underneath the cd tray (from my 1 1/2 year old). After shaking the unit a couple of times i was able to get the discs out of the underside of the disc tray. When i hit the disc exchange to close the try the unit powered up, closed the tray, and operated fine and i am back to using it like i used to with out any other problems.

My panasonic turns on but shows the letter f61 what does that mean?


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

May also be the fan if it has one make sure it is clean and can spin freely.
Hope this helps. Thanks

Error Message


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.

Error F61


I have just struck this problem on a friends unit and here is what I did

Disconnect DVD player and all accessories and connections
Problem still occurs
Open machine ( remove three screws from back and slide top cover off. inspection of the inside top cover shows a black patch just above the fan unit
manually spin fan
power up unit and f61 no longer shows up
I think this miaght be a problem with the fan not spinning up at start and the machine then shuting down
I will fit a new fan and see what happens
