My daughter's Panasonic system displays an F61 error when trying to power up. Basically I'm looking for a service manual to try and troubleshoot the unit. I've seen elsewhere where F61 could be a power supply problem. Any suggestions? Ralph

Re: 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.

F61 is an Error Code......it's basically indicating that something inside the stereo is malfunctioning or broken.
the stereo has gone into Protection mode.....could mean there is Direct Current on one of the output rails....most likely the Power Amplifier IC in your Stereo has gone bad....a new one should solve this problem....you'll need to send it in to Panasonic for replacement of the faulty parts.
The F61 indicates a problem detected in the output amp stage and the unit us shutdown to prevent further damage. If you can supply the model number, I can give you the part required and the approximate cost.
Typically the F61 error is a protection error indicating that there is a problem with the output amplifier section. The failiing part is usually IC501 (part number RSN311W64D) which costs about $95. Have this unit checked as there are other possibilities.
I had a jammed disc that was causing this same error message. To remove the jammed disc, remove the top by removing the screws and then you can remove the stuck/jammed discs. For the Panasonic SC-PT750 there are 7 screws, three small silver ones on the back, then 4 black ones, two on each side, all philips head. Once you have that off, gently pry it off starting from the back, the cover is actually hinged into the front plastic piece of the player.
