Sherwood AX-4103 amp keeps clicking

Hi, I have an old (20+ yrs) Sherwood AX-4103 amp that has recently started clicking when sound is relayed through the speakers (doesn't seem to do it when it's just on headphones). Any ideas what the cause might be? I've never done any electronics repairs but I'm happy to have a go if someone can help me out with instructions :)

Hello there.... Check your speaker wires and then if that doesn't do it? try replacing the fuses on the back of the amp.. make sure power is turned off and unplugged. If that doesn't work? Try one speaker at a time ... something is causing the system to short out. Hopefully it is not internally

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Sherwood RX-5502 receiver - get

Hi,

After doing all this troubleshooting on your receiver, Check if master volume on the surround levels are too low. Adjust master and surround level.

There may aIso incorrect selection of the input source. Select the correct input source.

If after doing this the problem still continue, it means the sound ic in the receiver is damage. the sound ic brings out the sounds from the receiver. You will have to open the receiver to locate the sound ic in the receiver and use the multimeter to read capacitors and change the damage ones.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Pull the sherwood power cord from the wall for 20 minutes. On the back of sherwood, check all cables and make sure they are in the correct places. Check speaker wires and make sure they are connected. 1)After 20 minutes, turn power on to sherwood. 2) select an input (radio, cd, etc.) 3) Push play. 4) Turn volume to desired level.

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.

Sherwood AX-4050R Amp - faulty RCA inputs


It is rare for the actual input connectors to fail. More likely, either the solder connections need to be re-flowed, or the switching IC is defective. If you can solder, try resoldering the pins of the RCA connectors. Look closely at them and see if the PC board trace is broken. If the resoldering fails to resolve the problem, look for a switching IC with about 28 pins. It may be marked TC9163 or something similar. That will be the audio switching IC. I would change that next.

Sherwood AX-7030R amp - doesn't switch on.


Something doesn't sound right. The standby circuit is usually very simple. The "regulator" is just a transistor. Can you request and post the parts that he/she can't find. I should be able to get you a source or substitutes.

probably I would say no. Unless you know how to read a schematic or know how to do certain small static checks on the output devices and the drivers as well as the power suppy feeding these devices.
