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.)

Samsung tv shuts off and lights blink on off


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

I have a RX-V1000 Yamaha Receiver. I recently added on speakers for my back yard, but would like to run them independent of the receiver. Meaning I don't want to have to have speakers in the house on...


Any Tape Out (REC) is flat Line Level output for any analog source selected by the RX-V1000.

Or you could just set up Zone 2 as on Page 61 in the manual - with or without the remote capability.

NOt all audio is borne strictly on HDMI.

Have you looked at the manual?

The specific product you're inquiring about is not showing in your post. Name the make and model first, then we'll look for the manual. Then (maybe) find a solution. You might find it at the manufacturer's support site or these guys...

How do I connect my outside speakers to play?


The onkyo should still have a speaker A/B selector in the menu.
Check on the back panel for speaker A/B.
If it has or you decide to use Zone 2 you will need to set the sound programme to "stereo" so the rears and centre do not work.
You can still use a digital source.
You should be able to display the amp's menu on the screen.
Hook up "monitor out" (Yellow) via RCA connector to one of the "A/V inputs" (yellow) on the tv, this will show you a display of the menu and will make it eaiser to navigate.

Subwoofer amplifier


Here's how I'd do it... connect the subwoofer pre-out to one of the unused analog inputs (CD or CD-R perhaps?). Turn on Zone 2 by pressing the MULTI-ZONE ON/OFF button. The MULTI-ZONE indicator will light.

Press CONTROL. (Zone 2 should display) Use the INPUT SELECTOR dial to select the source for the zone you have selected. In my example, CD or CD-R.

Of course, you'll need the sub hooked up to the Surround back speaker terminals.

Here's a link to the manual online:
Pioneer VSX-1018 Manual

Things to keep in mind:
The Surround Back setting must be set to ZONE 2. See page 41 of the manual.
The volume level going to the sub will probably need some tweaking. Check out page 7 to see how to manually adjust volume levels, or get it close by adjusting the Master Volume while in Zone 2 control.

I'm not sure if the auto setup function (with the included microphone) will work properly with this setup. And, of course, this is not a "suggested" setup by Pioneer, so please use caution when hooking everything up.

Good luck!
