I was playing around with my Sherwood RD 6513 and adjust the the output level to its maximum, amongst other settings. This limited my output on the amp to a maximum volume of 65 not 90+.. Anyway i pluged in the microphone and done another 'auto setup' of the volume levels and distances, and this allowed the volume to exceed 65 again!

Also if you have an external source such as a DVD player - i would assume you have already checked its output volume setting?

I have an rd 7103. Just moved. Hooked up again and no sound. Reconnected every wire several times and no sound even through the headset. all functions on the remote work even the aux outlet ?????


Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead

LG 55LH90 TV to Sherwood RD6500 receiver


That's what manuals are for.

Video Out on the receiver goes to Video In on the TV. That's all you really need.

I recmmend you grab any TV-related audio from wherever its source is for the highest fidelity sound (NOT the TV).

It shuts off afer 5 seconds when powered on.


Does the unit output sound when powered on? If no sound can be heard, and you only hear a click after 5 sec. then your power circuit may have a faulty diode.

Concerning my Sherwood RD-7500 6.1 Channels Receiver


That still doesn't make much sense. Please slow down and say what you mean with detail and accuracy. We're not mind readers. You are our eyes and ears.

Is the following true?

"Video 1" video output goes to the TV and works ok. Though it is irrelevant since you don't have a video problem. That you mention it at all is distracting. Do you feel it is important?

Tower speakers are the main or only speakers. Do they work ok for other sources?

So, to be clearer, you have a problem with a particular sound source (the game console) being less loud than usual. Is it unusable or drastically different in level than other sound sources?

Where and how is the game console connected for audio? Can you move it to another input?

Have you considered that the game console or its settings may be the reason volume is lower than usual?
