You will need an optical digital audio connection for the TV and the TV will have to be fitted with a compatible "optical digital audio" OUT connection.
The soundbar unit you have does not have an HDMI connection so you only have the one choice with cable..
Any electronics store selling cables will fit you with the correct one.

So much can go wrong. WARNING!! NEVER LOOK STRAIGHT INTO THE LIGHT FROM AN OPTICAL AUDIO OR VIDEO SYSTEM. The optical output could be not working (try switching it on and look if you see a red light) The optical cable can be broken inside) see if the brightness of the red light is almost the same as what is coming out of the TV. Point it to a white paper to view.
The optical input from your receiver can be defect or dirty. The optical protocol can be wrong or the systems are not compatible.
If it ever worked, the most chance is the cable is defect.
Otherwise follow the chain and read what the manuals have to say about how and what.
Typically if your player is over 2 years old the optical unit could be the culprit. The laser unit becomes weak or stops focusing properly. The only go is to change it. Will cost you about 10 -15$ plus labor.
The u61 code is a common code on your unit. It signifies an issue with the DVD controller board. The problem is that it will probably cost more to fix the issue than the player is worth. Some techs had luck with dis-assembling the unit and resetting the optical block. If you have the tools and experience you can take the unit apart, disconnect all of the cables and move the optical block back. The error message is defined as the unit either suffering a power outage or being unplugged while it was on. The unit then tries to run it's own recovery program. More often than not the unit will make some noises, then display a message stating the recovery did not work, and advising you to take the unit to your local Panasonic repair center. Some owners had luck with unplugging the unit for a couple of hours, then plugging it back in and switching it back on.
In closing, if the unit displays the message that it did not recover you can then try and unplug for 2 hours. IF that doesn't work then dis-assemble and move the optical block. Failing that pay for a repair.
These steps should allow you to resolve your issue. If you do have further problems please don't hesitate to let us know. Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue.
