Question about Sherwood RX-4103 Receiver

Open Question

Sherwood RX-4103 won't power up.

Receiver worked fine last time I used it. Now when I push the power button, the standby light goes out, display does not light, then after a few seconds I hear a click and the standby light turns on. I opened it up and found a 6.3A fuse blown. The fuse appears to be near the input power components. I replaced the fuse, pushed the power button and the fuse lit up and blew, so there's a short somewhere. I did this with nothing hooked to the receiver so it's not an external short. Has anyone seen this? How can I get a schematic for trouble shooting? Thanks in advance for any help!

Why Sherwood Receiver will NOT turn off. It's stuck in VCR mode?

Unless it has some kind of "child lock" mode, in which case you should see the manual about how to reset it. It sounds to me that there is a fault on the microprocessor that controls the functions. It's not something that could be solved other than by an engineer.

Look around for a service centre for Sherwood on the net. Richer Sounds in the UK sold a lot of these, they might be able to help you.

Rx-4103 stereo receiver, it cuts off after you turn it on, thei sound it make is a load pop.

Sounds like you have a bad capacitor in the power supply. Testing with capacitor tester and ohmmeter will be needed to find fault

Technics turntable plays but no sound with Sherwood receiver

The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.

Sherwood rd7103 rec.

no listing for Sherwood receiver. must do the remote "search" function. here is how:
  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. On the remote control, press TV once.
  3. Then press and hold SETUP until the TV key blinks twice, then release the SETUP key.
  4. Using the number pad, enter 9-9-1. The TV key will blink twice.
  5. Aim the remote control at the TV and slowly alternate between pressing Power and TV. Stop when the TV turns off after pressing the POWER key. This means that a working code has been found.
  6. Press the SETUP key once to lock in the code. The TV key will blink twice.
Hope that helps!

Tone Direct Problems

Classic electronic controlproblem...

If you still have warranty, use it.....!

The board for your preamp/switch/vol are made as an electric matrix. This means that several signals are coded and sent from the "frontpanel" to the amp itself. A digital signal like this will be hard for someone to measure and understand without a oscilloscope.

My advice is to clean and check all connetions (inside the amp), but mind the hazardous currents inside.
