Home Theater Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems. In order to assist you, I need to ask for more info.
1) How old is the Panasonic (roughly) and when did the issue occur?
2) Were there any storms, power outages, etc. just prior to this occurring?
Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately the F6 (or in some cases F76) indicates a hardware failure in the Panasonic. That code monitors the power supply circuit in the system. More specifically there are capacitors and a voltage regulator that are prone to failing with age and will prevent the system from booting up. This is very common with these units as they get on in age- and 11 years is a good run for them. If you want to fix the unit, it will need to be repaired by a tech (these components are soldered onto the power supply PCB) and the average cost is in the $150-$175 range. Given the cost of repairs versus replacement, it generally makes more sense to replace the system versus repairing it.
I'm sorry for the bad news and wish there were a quick fix. If you would like to inquire about repairs, or would like a 2nd opinion, you can use the link below to locate a shop in your area if you'd like:
