Thanks for your question. Please remember to rate my assistance when we're done. Please talk with me first before rating negatively

That is a main clock control failure. Whenever the F1 code appears you need a new main clock control. There are screws on the back panel to remove it then the clock control is typically held in with 4 screws. There is no reset or other fix for it.
