Question about Audio Players & Recorders
It sounds to me like you don't have a magnetic cartridge pre-amp to boost the signal up. It depends on how you have it all connected up. For instance is the turntable connected to a amp that has a dedicated phono socket? If the turntable plugs into a computer you might need a pre-amp or software that can correct the low level of the signal. You can buy a Magnetic Cartridge pre-amp if that is what you need.

SOURCE: low volume and unbalanced deck
Turntables require amplification, they have very low output on their own. If your Sherwood has an Aux input try using that, older receivers often had a built-in pre-amp on the aux jack. You can obtain a stand alone pre-amp for less than $50, I use one from mcm, #40-630.

Funny thing about analog to digital recording without a preamp. You will record a signal, but that signal might be below the level of human audibility, if the line levels are left at the level that left the turntable, given the absence of a PREAMP.

I had this same problem with my Crosley 704 and it bamboozled me to no end.
After digging around I dug up the manual online (I bought mine used so I didn't have one to consult). It turns out the record stops when it gets to the end, and to get it spinning again you have to lift up the tone arm and move it right (past the holding latch) until it clicks, and voila, it starts spinning again, ready for a new record.
You'd think that they coulda made it more obvious :(
