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 root cause for intermittent shutdown.

It is showing F61. Manual says a speaker wire is the problem, but can't seem to find the wire that is the problem.

My panasonic sa-ak600 cd player doesn't switch on. I checked the fuse inside the unit and found which was good. hopefully, someone can figure it out. thanks


I had the same problem. My unit would turn on, display F61, and turn off. I looked at the manual. It said if you see 'F61', check and correct the Speaker Cords connection. If this does not fix the problem, there is a Power Supply problem. Consult the dealer. Hope this helps.

F61 error


I had the same problem, and I had to replace the fan on the unit. The fan would not turn on at all, so the computer would tell the unit to turn itself off. After the fan was replaced (which is relatively simple) it works like new.
