Q:

what is the common part is deffective if automatically turn off the power supply is ok SA-AK18 Panasonic Cd stereo system

A:

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.com. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your CD Stereo System. We are here to help. The regulator is the most common part to go bad in a stereo power supply. The second most common problem is the audio output. The first image below is the schematic of the power supply. However, if the system still turns on, I recommend running the diagnostic shown on the second and third image. Otherwise, unless you had training in electronics, I recommend taking the stereo system into your closest service and repair center. This way the stereo system will be fixed properly without additional problems. I hope this helps

If you do not feel comfortable repairing this problem yourself or if it is under warranty, then you can have it repaired at your nearest Sears service center or drop off center. I provided you a link to locate one. Just use the store locator.

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Q:

do you know a web site to log on to to find out the code my stereo is showing?

A:

The F61 error code is related to a power supply short. The manufacturer recommends that you first check if the speaker wires to the system have shorted. If that isnt the case, they ask that you consult your dealer.

I answered you're previous question that did not include the model number. When I have an error code that can be read by the consumer I always check the owner's manual. Here is a link to that manual from Panasonic's site. Page 30 suggests that the speaker cords may have shorted, if not then the power supply may be defective.

If it is suggesting checking for shorted speaker wires then I think that the amps may be suspect. Either way you will need to take it to a repair shop.

A:

Usually a power supply issue. You need to unplug the unit over night. This discharges all capacitors in the unit and resets it like new. If you just keep turning it on it will just shut down. Is the unit on a power cord or power strip? If so plug it directly into the wall outlet. You might want to check your wall outlet and make sure it is nominal as far as amperage. The amperage drop from the cord, strip, or outlet could be causing the problem. Older houses might not have enough amperage to drive the unit. Strange that this just happened. Was the unit moved to a new outlet? Was there a lightning storm, was the unit left on for an extended period of time like days, weeks or months or was a new component added? Lightning damage is causes some of the damage. Clean the cooling fan by using compressed air might help also. If you find this does not work then the cost of a new power supply is prohibitive and you are better off replacing the unit.

By the way I have seen new houses with bad outlets made in China that have cause this problem also. New houses with GFCI outlets can also be problematic with amps and trip often.
