Re: my amplifier


The "switched off by itself" is indicative that the auto-protect is acting. Auto protect senses that there is something wrong within the unit and rather than the damage extend to other areas, it simply switches the entire unit off. On some models, this also hold true if there are no or faulty speakers connected to the receiver. In others, this happens when there is no intelligent signal received such as in FM when an antenna would be required.

If you have verified that it is not poor signal, speaker problem, then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified audio technician since this would involve electronic circuitry/component diagnosis, soldering and the use of a DVM.

hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Amplifier shuts down soon after turned on with a "click" sound. This happens intermittently but less common in cool weather. Nothing is placed on it and it is in a relatively dust-free...

Hi, This is a (thermo switch) heat is being generated through the unit. This switch turns it off when the amp gets to hot. My suggestion is you can place a fan near the unit to cool it down. Good luck.

Hi my amp when i switch it on within 3 seconds it automatically switches off?

That's the protect circuit kicking in.
The rec'r will require service. Either a couple of power supply capacitors have gone bad or one of the power amp modules has quit.

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.

Digiatal input indicator keep flasing

The flashing digital input for DVD means its digtial input is either not connected or not transmiiting. If yoy still hear the DVD it is probably because you also have the analog cables attached. Is that right?

If you had both attached the receiver would opt for digital over analog but would default to analog if the digital signal was not there.

If you can connect the DVD's digital cable you will get actual 5.1 surround sound from DVD.

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.

Missing manual

I couldn't find the manual for the 6103, but since I assume the 6105 is similar, the manual for it might be of some help.

Sounds like you like your music like me... LOUD. If you've done this a number of times, there are a few things that can happen:

1. You've blown the speakers... but you've said it operates for 2 seconds, then cuts out.
2. You've damaged the amplifier modules within the amp and they immediately overheat upon power-up. Does the music come back like 5 or 10 seconds after the unit cuts out?
3. Thermal switch has malfunctioned and just cuts off the power to the amplifier modules as soon as it sees any heat.
4. If you've gotten the amp really HOT during playing, it's possible that it's as simple as the amp modules are only intermittently connected (fatigued/stressed or cold solder joints) at the on the PCB. Just resolder the connections of the amp module to the PCB. I've seen that happen numerous times and that's where I'd place my money.
