We have a JVC RX 6000. There is an unthreaded plug in the back for a 75o hook for FM antenna. The receiver we have does not look like the repair manual as it appears as if there is or was to be a copper or metal center lead that comes from the back of the receiver. They have just had a piece of 58 coxial cabe stuck in the hole. The sound is muffled. The regular threaded fitting will not fit in or go over the existing plug in. Can you advise what type of adapter it requires?

No speakers are selected if just headphone is displayed. Press the speaker button just under the power button. No station is tuned when auto muting is displayed. Hook up an antenna to the receiver or use a different source like a cd player.
If you want to buy the antenna wire you could get one at radio shack that will plug into the spot you are talking about or as I used to do is put a small nail into the middle of the hole and wrap a wire, wire is 3 foot long longer the better, that is stripped around the nail, the wire only has to be stripped where it touches the nail, this is not the professional way to do this but it works the same, make sure not to push the small nail in to farand the nail fits the hole snug, Would recommend getting the one from radio shack but I have done it the way I said for ever and works fine. And you will have fm reception
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.
Make sure your receiver is hooked up to proper AM and FM antennae. Try switching to AM, scan stations. If you hear AM static and/or weak signals the problem could be antennas are not hooked up. FM has AFT which blocks out weak or noisey stations and you wont hear anything without ant.
