    message F61 comes on when it is turned on and then it powers off.

  • dodgey_rogey Dec 09, 2008

    i have the very same problem. i have removed the cover and have disconnected the 2 cooling fans situated on the rear and on the side of the unit. i blew the fans out of the dust with a vacuum and reconnected everything. i then powered the unit and straight away showed F61. can anyone please tell me how to fix thi problem. i do not want to send it away as it costs too much and is pointless if i can do it myself.

    cheers

Check and correct the speaker cord connections. If this does not fix the problem, there is a power supply problem. Consult the dealer.

When i turn on my Panasonic stereo set model number: SA-CH94M the systems just displays F61 them Goodbye and Shuts down. What is the cause of this and how can it be fixed? A quick response will be greatly...


Hi denty56,

F61 is an error code for short and or overload. This will appear once the processor sense a malfunction either on the power supply or on the load (high chance is the output IC). DIY steps are as follow to determine where the fault is : 1. Allow the unit to cool down for an hour. Give proper ventilation and keep away all obstruction from the vent to have a sufficient air flow. 2. Disconnect one at a time the speakers, inputs, from the unit while powering it on.

If the unit back to normal again then you've confirmed that any of the above caused the error code. If #1 is the caused, you have to check also the exhaust fan, clean it as much as possible, replaced if faulty. If #2 is the caused (speaker) check the wire and speakers for short, (input) check the RCA cord for short or replaced if necessary.

If the above simple fix didn't cure the error code, you can try the next steps if you are an electronicsenthusiast. Now after removing the cover, you have to concentrate first on the power supply board. Look for bulged electrolytic capacitor. Leaky capacitor will affect the regulation of the supply and will trigger the error code. Look for dry joints. Check it also in the pre-amplifier stage, main output board where a big heat sink is located. Next disable the output amplifier stage by disconnecting the supply. If the unit come out, make some re-soldering on the board, spot the cold solder and dry joints and then try to connect again. If the error code appear again, high chance that your output IC is faulty but still to be confirmed. Using the disoldering pump and soldering iron pull-out the output IC from the board then try the unit. If the error code disappear, confirmed that your IC is faulty.After trying the abovesteps-by-steps guide and still the symptoms persist this is the time for you to send it to repair shop. Remember that your unit has a lot of parts and only some basic steps have done, leave the expert to troubleshoot the entire unit.

Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

Thanks for using Fixya.

At power on, displays F61 code and switches 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./pre-amplifier circuit is faulty.
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...

F61 error code


Sorry to hear about your error code F61

This code refers to a High Limit Temp. condition.
This is most likely caused by the cooling fan.
If the Fan has stopped running or not running at full speed, you will recv. this error message and the temp. reaches high-end limit.
Please check the cooling fan, any possible air flow restrictions and correct running RPM.

Hope this information has helped you.
Readers, please rate your technicians information.

Getting F61 in Display of Panasonic SC-HT700


I have gotten the f61 error code on my SC-HT700. No idea what the problem is.

F61 error


The F61 error message is effectively a "protect mode" message indicating that a problem was detected and that the system hasbeen shut down to prevent further damage. This is typically caused by a bad output amplifier pac or regulator. If you can post the specific model number, I'll try to get you the part numbers and costs.

Sa-ht680 service manual


The F61 indicates protect mode. There is a problem with the output stage of the amplifier section and the unit shuts down to prevent further damage. This unit will require service of the amp section. You can try to contact Panasonic for the service manual.

The output amp pac is an RSN311W64D at a cost of $95 plus shipping.
