I have the same problem with my sherwood receiver, I turn it on and then 4 seconds later it clicks off. Nothing is hooked to it, not a speaker, cd,tape plater, etc. It started when I hooked up the speakers 8olm, and turned the sound to half way. How can that be repaired by me?

Are you sure you dont have a bad speaker cable? or a blown speaker? unhook everything from the receiver then try and power it on with nothing plugged in. One at a time plug each speaker up if its still working and hasnt shut off when all speakers are plugged in then start connecting each device (dvd, vcr,tape deck,) Some receivers have a blow protection circuit that blows like a cirquit breaker in a home if there is a problem. Maybe you have a short? blow speaker? hooking each device up one at a time starting from nothing will help you trouble shoot the problem. If it clicks off with nothing plugged in then the unit may need serviced.

How do I reset the defaults on my Sherwood RD-8108 AV receiver?

I just got a tip from Sherwood tech support on resetting my Sherwood receiver, and it solved my problem perfectly. It's not the same model number but here's what I did: Put the receiver on Standby. Press and hold the Setup button for 3 seconds. When you see the model # on the display, press Enter. The word "Cleared" should show on the display. Hope it works for you also.

Power cuts off after 2 seconds after stereo start button is pressed

Disconnect your speaker wire's from your receiver, and then turn the receiver on.

If your receiver cuts off with the speakers disconnected, there is something wrong with your receiver, and take your Sherwood receiver to a qualified reputable technician.

If your receiver stays on with the speakers disconnected, their is a short circuit either in your speakers wires, or in your speakers. Make sure your speaker wires are pushed all the way in the speaker terminals in the back of the receiver, and do not leave no naked speaker wires exposed. If you have too long of bare speaker wires exposed at the receiver's speaker terminal, or at the speaker's terminals, they could touch each other, and cause the receiver to cut off. If the speaker wires are OK, then you may have a short circuit in your speakers.

Sherwood rd7103 rec.

no listing for Sherwood receiver. must do the remote "search" function. here is how:
  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. On the remote control, press TV once.
  3. Then press and hold SETUP until the TV key blinks twice, then release the SETUP key.
  4. Using the number pad, enter 9-9-1. The TV key will blink twice.
  5. Aim the remote control at the TV and slowly alternate between pressing Power and TV. Stop when the TV turns off after pressing the POWER key. This means that a working code has been found.
  6. Press the SETUP key once to lock in the code. The TV key will blink twice.
Hope that helps!

Sherwood rv 6030r does not turn on.

Try these simple trick to find out yor remote control working or not....
Point the remote control towards the Camera of a Mobile Camera phone,with the camera on. While pressing remote, we can see a light (Infra Red) coming from its IR LED through the Mobile Camera if the Remote is working.
If the remote is OK, then the problem with the Remote Sensor or related components of the receiver.

Switches to standby at high volume

First you should check is there something improperly connected. If malfunction still occurs, check is there cooler inside, and if it is, is it working. That seems like heating problem.
