Question about Sherwood RX-4105 Receiver

4 Answers

Sherwood RX-4105 Amp won't power on.

System won't power up. 5v Pre-environment supply is working. Has 5v to the power button, which drops to zero when you press the button. No lights, no display, no relay clicking.

None of the outputs or drivers are shorted. No sign of burned traces or components.

For a friend. Can't spend much on it since new ones are out there for about $120.

Thanks for thinking about it! Mike

    That's pretty good general advice, but a little too general for me. The amp has 3 circuit boards, control/display, receiver, and the distribution/amplification (maybe what you call "output") board. The output board only has one ic on it, and it is a little 8 pin dip that I don't think has anything to do with power up. I've already stated that I can't find any bad traces. Your general reference to a "distribution chip" I can't find helpful. While I am an FCC licensed electronics technician, I don't work on stereo equipment much and that description isn't helping me at all to find the problem. I need information relative to my specific model, something like "the problem is IC201. Replace that." Thanks anyhow. Mike

If your power button light on the Sherwood will not light up as soon as you plug the unit up, and the power supply is working to the front board is working, you can't turn it on; the front board is bad. You would need to get a new front board from Sherwood. You just can't replace the chip on the front board, because that chip is programable, and the manufacture has the programming for that chip.

If you work on the Sherwood, be very careful, or else you could knock out both the front board, and the main board. Do not plug the Sherwood back up until all the scews on the board are tighten, all the connection plugs are connected, otherwise, you would knock out both the front board, and the main board as soon as you plug that Sherwood up.

Even if you get the parts yourself to fix your Sherwood, It would probably cost around more than half the cost of the Sherwood itself after paying to get that part shipped to you.

Sounds like an open circuit on the output side of the board. you should be able to test the circuit on the output side if your comfortable doing this open the unit and use a multimeter. if there or no broken paths on the board then the fault is inside the distribution chip on the board itself. You can purchase these at an electronic supply store. just replace it. the cost should be minimal. please rate this thanks

HI,

You will have to check the fuse.There probably is a fuse next to where the power cord goes into it. It will look like a little round black cap. It may be necessary to push on it and twist it in order to get it out. It will be marked on the case with a number followed by the letter "A", that being the fuse rating in amperes.

    If the fuse is blown then you will have to replace it.

Laptop lost battery back-up suddenly.


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

TV will not come on even though the light turns blue


check for leak or bad capacitors in the power supply board, then if you can make a voltage checking just to ensure if output voltage in the power supply board are present. the 5v standby 5v switch 12v and 24vdc at the power supply doesn't drop.

Board will not start


Just after that there was NO correct answer to fix this problem causes the problem not solved even if it is marked as solved. Me too I have this problem, I was fix it by setting jumpers to default 60 Hz AC power because I won`t have 50Hz AC power or some AC power converter before PSU, I mean this is voltage errors, it`s need to be set to default +5V(60Hz) PSU not +5VSB(50Hz) PSU, (Step1) like might be set to USBPW12 to pin 3 both USB to right side inserted jumper it`s in left side of, near ATX 12v advanced CPU power cable connection socket. Next (step 2) is set up front USB jumpers to +5V or system won`t start up, it`s on motherboard about between PCI1 and PCI2 on right side it must be set up to USBPW56 and don`t set it to USBPW78(5+VBS) because system won`t start up, the jumper must be set to right side I mean it`s last jumpers to right side need to be set up, because it`s +5V(60Hz) PSU supply. The USB wake-up feature requires a power supply that can provide at least 500mA on the +5VSB lead when these jumpers are set to +5VSB otherwise the system won`t power up. Next step if it still not starts up its BIOS fault, it`s easy to repair, just (Step3) turn off PC remove BIOS battery (it`s down to IDE cables), start it up wait a bit, then turn it off and turn it again on wait a bit again, turn it off place BIOS battery in to socket to be able save BIOS settings i mean battery is need to save them otherwise settings won`t be saved and Chassis will be broken. (Step 4) Turn PC on press del key after BIOS is load in open Power\Hardware monitoring\Chassis Intruder set to Disable, save settings exit. (Step5) If BIOS (PC won`t power up) it`s Chassis1 jumper fault, it`s need set to Default (Chassis signal, and GND(Ground)), it`s between SATA 2 and SATA1(Serial ATA connectors 7-pin it`s near and down to BIOS battery, the jumpers might be set to right side, after it`s completed repeat Step3 and Step4. CMOS is BIOS battery. If that all doesn't works Take BIOS clearing jumper in it`s clear state, near BIOS chip. Turn on PC with CMOS clear jumper turned on its work. Take beck jumper in its default state after that take bios chip out and CMOS battery out both them an two times restart PC after insert all beck if PC will be working all keyboard flashes once, after its in AC power.

Green lights...no power. HELP!


This could be a problem with your power supply. If the motherboard sees that the voltages from your power supply are low, it will turn itself back off.

You can test your power supply by unplugging all of your internal power cables, ground out the green wire on the 20-pin/24-pin ATX connector and check your yellow (12v), red (5v) and orange (3.3v) wires. If the voltages come back more than 10-15% off, you will most likely need a new power supply.
Even if you have good voltages using the test method above, it is only an indication that your voltages are good at zero load. Your power supply may still fail under normal load. If you have recently added any hardware to your computer, remove it and try again. If this still doesn't work or you haven't added any hardware recently, replace your power supply.

Red light is not on and the remote will not work


If you have no indicator light on the TV at all, the first place to look will be the power supply, if you do have light, then at least the 5v standby power supply is working which supplys the power to the controller board, when it receive the ON command from the remote or from the power button, the controller board will send out the ON signal to the main power supply section to supply the power to the rest of the circuit. So 5v standby voltage is a must. You may have bad capacitors in the power supply.

Olevia 42 inch Flat Panel has power supply issue... Blue light does not come on and tv does not turn on... I have tried all different things to get tv to work with no positive results


What did you try so far? The main power supply MUST have at least the 5V standby supply section working. This 5v is used by the main control board to send out the command to turn on the main power supply section which will power up the rest of the TV circuits when the power switch is activated either by the power button of remote or on the TV powern button. Look for this 5v first.
