You need to look at the devices on the heat sink. They will probably need replacing. You can check (if they are transistors) with an ohm meter if they are working. Connecting it accross the terminals of each device will probably show a short circuit. Just like if you had touched the probes together. If so there will be some blown fuses somewhere.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a Sherwood RX-5502

The statement on page 7 might allow enough wiggle room for a single pair of 4-ohm speakers used alone. Procede with caution and don't try to blow the walls down with them. Monitor for excessive heat or strain and if it clips or self-protects back off.

By design, yes for one pair of 6-ohm speakers used at a time; depends on the sub for the second BUT there is no way to control its volume at the Sherwood.

SOURCE: Can I connect my TV through my Sherwood amp ax4050r so that I can use the HI fi speakers for TV as well?

Easiest way is to use the Audio Out RCA plug to the amp, probably at line in.
If no RCA plugs on the TV, you'd have to alligator clamp onto one of the speakers.

If your Sherwood has preamp outputs, you can connect directly to the power amp inputs.

SHERWOOD RECEIVER 6108. I don't have the remote. Are some funtions only available by using the remote? When I plug it in I have standby mode but no florescent display, when I press the audio button on...


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.


Check for loose speaker connections as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Is there a way of connecting my ipod to my sherwood cd player?


The answer isn't with the CD player, it's with the amp.
Does the amp have selectable inputs, or does it just have one input for each channel?

If it's a simple power amp, then you'll have to unplug the CD player and connect your iPod to the amp inputs. I'm guessing that the CD player connects to the amp with RCA (phono) connectors like these ones.
If that's the case, you can get a cable (like this one at Radio Shack, but any office supply store will have one too) to connect your iPod to the amp.

Insignia NS-R2000 receiver


Check the impedance ratings of your speakers. Sherwood, the actual manufacturer of the NS-R2000 receiver, suggests that you use speakers with an eight ohm impedance if you have only one pair attached. If you have two pairs of speakers attached, the impedance rating of each pair should be sixteen ohms.

This is because Sherwood wired the receiver such that an additional pair of speakers is placed in a parallel circuit to the first set. When this is done, the impedance (resistance) of the load seen by the amplifier drops. As resistance drops, you get closer to a short circuit (no appreciable resistance).

Many other receivers wire the speakers in series, which causes the impedance to go up.

Personal experience seems to suggest that the amplifier is OK with a four ohm load on it. It does run warmer with a four ohm load, which is what you'd expect. It's when you have multiple sets of four ohm rated speakers that you will get into trouble, as this means the receiver only sees a two ohm load. This will cause overheating and shutdown.

At this point the power transistors in the amplifier may have been damaged. It may require repair. Fortunately, replacement parts are readily available (though not from Sherwood or Insignia). If it continues to shut down, stop using it. You could end up burning out your speakers.

It depends on what you want. Is your existing solution a surround sound system (You only mention a subwoofer, what other speakers do you have?)? Do you want full 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound? If you don't have this, and want it, your amp will have to be replaced, but your sub will fit in just fine. If you currently only have front left and right speakers, you will need to purchase a centre speaker and another pair (5.1) or two pairs (7.1) of speakers.
