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.

I have a Sherwood RX-4105 Receiver and I am getting no sound through my speakers and the connection with the wires is good so its not that. Any Idea on whats wrong?


when you turn your computer you should hear a sound of a relay initially and after about two seconds another sound, is the closure of the speaker relay models if you do not hear the sounds, the team has some short audio output.

I got a 43 yr old Pioneer manual turntable. I have to almost max my speakers to get a good sound. Help


Firstly does the receiver have a magnetic cartridge pre-amp built in? It will have to have a dedicated "phono" socket for this. If it hasn't you need to get one.
The only other cause is a faulty cartidge. You can test this by removing the wires to the cartridge. By touching with your finger each wire, amp on of course, you should hear a loud buzz on two of them one for each channel. If you don't hear any buzz or it's still weak, even if the receiver has a pre-amp, then either the cables to the amp are faulty or the pre-amp in the amp is.

Sherwood RX-4105 Receiver will not stay on


Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but your unit has either a bad power supply or bad transistors and need serviced. Under 200 for the repair however, I'm not sure what the unit sells for new but weight the costs vs replacement. Hope this helps

Sherwood rx-4105 output transistors


You can also use 2SD2560 and 2SB1647 130watt 150volt 15amp transistor, but it may require some rebiasing the on output transistors. Sherwood have used these transistors in their older model receivers. I just replaced those transistors in my Sherwood RX-4105 Receiver, and they work good as well.

Before I install those transistor. I did a out of circuit 20volt 4amp DC current test to a 4ohm resistor @ 200watt load to compare 2SD2560 / 2SB1647 to the B2510/B1510 mounting them on 5 square inch, 1/8" thick piece of Aluminum, and the results of the test, the 2SD2560 / 2SB1647 heats up in 60 seconds to around 120 degrees F, and the B2510 and D1510 heats up in 30 seconds to around 120 degrees F.

Sherwood RX 4105 no input for a turn table


Check for a line level switch on the turn table, it may be under the turn table itself lift the rubber mat and spin the table by hand, it may not have one or it could be on the back.
You can buy a phono amp that will boost the phono signal. Check at Radio Shack or google it.
