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.

I have a technics stereo but f61 error on it how do i fix it

F61 is the error code for an amp problem. It may need an amp IC replaced, or, if you're lucky, the may just be bad solder connections on the amp IC's and regulators that are on the heatsink. Most of the technics receivers had an access panel that can be removed from the bottom of the unit, and then you can visually inspect for any bad connections. Check anything that is on the heatsink as these were the biggest problems for this line of receivers.

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...

When pressing the on/off button it is staying red and displayed on screen is F61 and thats all it will do

"F61" protect in other brand is an error code for short/overload on the following.
1. Inputs - speakers, microphone, Audio inputs from cable box, TV, etc.
2. Faulty internal Fan - Once the internal fan gone to malfunction, the unit will automatically turned to this error code to avoid further damaged most especially to the expensive parts like the sound output IC.
3. Power supply - if one of the power supply is not normal, same symptoms will be encountered.
4. Sound output IC - once this IC gone to malfunction, it will trigger the symptoms to avoid further damaged to power supply and speakers.

DIY steps to determine if the fault came from the board inside the unit is by disconnecting all of the inputs, speaker, microphone from the unit and turned it on without them. If the symptoms still persist, #2 - #4 parts needs to check to isolate the problem.

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.

Old technics sl-eh60

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.

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
