Same thing happened on my R-925RDS. The memory backup capacitor in this case is C322 on the front panel PCB, over on the far left hand side by the mains power button.

In the case of the 925 it's a 0.047F 5.5V capacitor, a small black block approx. 10mm high with 10x5mm footprint. In the service manual it's referred to as 0.047uF, but this is incorrect. Replaced it with a 0.1F 5.5V memory back up capacitor, all's well.

If replacing the capacitor, BE CAREFUL where you mount it! Putting a standard (round) backup capacitor in the exact location of the old one may bring it very close to the mains switch. What I did instead was mount mine about 2 inches closer to the centre of the board, using double-sided tape, and ran wires back to its connection points.

I have a Sherwood R925 it lost all programmed inputs like that. It turned out to be a Memory Retention Capacitor that had failed. Look on the display board inside. They are often small and low value. If you are no good at repairs it would only cost less than 1.00 for the part, so worth repairing.

I have a lg 52lg50 lcd tv,everytime i turn tv back on,i lose all my channel memories and re auto tune,its not the cable because if i disconnect tv while on and hook back up channels are there .only when i...

This memory loss issue sounds like a problem with the main board inside the TV. The channel memory should not erase after a power cycle.

You are probably loosing other custom programming like your Display and Audio settings. That is if you had modified something in these menus.

You may want to check to see if this is also happening by making a change in like the Display menu, and then turn the unit off and back on.

The TV has a one year warranty on parts and labor.

FM Tuner in Sherwood RX-4105 stopped working

Check your antenna connections. Make sure your FM antenna is hooked up to the FM antenna terminal or jack on your Sherwood receiver. If you have the antenna hooked through the coaxial cable, check your coaxial cable with an ohmmeter for continuity. You can buy a volt-ohm meter as little as $12. Usually bad connection occur between coaxial cable and the the coax cable connectors. If that doesn't solve the problem, then there may be something wrong with your tuner card inside of your Sherwood receiver.

If you receivers display does not change channels or frequencies or AM or FM mode, when you try to change the channel or frequencies, or AM or FM mode, there may be something wrong with the front board of your receiver.

If there is something internally wrong your Sherwood receiver, you need to take it to a qualified technician that can fix it. Do not try to repair it yourself. If you don't know what you're doing, you can do far more damage to that Sherwood receiver to the point that would be very costly to repair.

Before you take your Sherwood receiver to a technician, try to unplug the receiver, and leave it unplugged for several minutes, and then plug it back in. If that doesn't solve the problem, then you need to take your Sherwood to a qualified technician.
