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.

Why is there no output to right speaker?


Confirm that the audio balance is not set to the left but in the middle!

Swap speaker connections to make sure the problem doesn't follow the speaker indicating the wiring to the speaker or speaker is bad.

Need to confirm that the input to the selected device is OK. Swap input RCA Red and White connections from the source. If an optical confirm that the source balance if the setting is available is set to middle

On many upgrade receivers as this Sherwood there is a test feature that confirms with an audio beep the speaker balance and connections. Look for a "Test" button.

Beside swapping the speaker connections left to right swap the speakers between the A and B speakers. See image for connection detail.

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.

I have a Sherwood RX-4105 Receiver and I am getting no sound through my speakers and the connection with the wires is good so its not that. Any Idea on whats wrong?


when you turn your computer you should hear a sound of a relay initially and after about two seconds another sound, is the closure of the speaker relay models if you do not hear the sounds, the team has some short audio output.

You untighten those connections, i mean really untighten them then you will see that there is a whole that you can feed your wires into once you have unscrewed those inputs far enough.

Unable to connect speaker wires to back of Sherwood 5502 receiver (no way to get them toi stay in)


If you unscrew the red and black knobs a few turns you will expose a small hole that is drilled through each post. Insert the twisted bare wire end into the appropriate hole and tighten the black or red knob to secure it.

Or get connectors as in this article...

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.

Splicing headphone outputs designed for nominal 8-ohm impedance speakers to a 47K-ohm (typical) RCA load is not a good idea but it might work on the Sherwood because this receiver does not automatically silence your other speakers when the headphone jack is installed.

There is NO other volume-controlled output to choose. Try it.

Power cuts off after 2 seconds after stereo start button is pressed


Disconnect your speaker wire's from your receiver, and then turn the receiver on.

If your receiver cuts off with the speakers disconnected, there is something wrong with your receiver, and take your Sherwood receiver to a qualified reputable technician.

If your receiver stays on with the speakers disconnected, their is a short circuit either in your speakers wires, or in your speakers. Make sure your speaker wires are pushed all the way in the speaker terminals in the back of the receiver, and do not leave no naked speaker wires exposed. If you have too long of bare speaker wires exposed at the receiver's speaker terminal, or at the speaker's terminals, they could touch each other, and cause the receiver to cut off. If the speaker wires are OK, then you may have a short circuit in your speakers.

Trying to install my new home theatre


Are you sure the wire is not damaged somewhere? Are you sure that you are connecting the wire to the correct terminal on the receiver? Is the speaker OK?

To test all of this, try different combinations. With Right speaker working, disconnect the wire from speaker and connect it to the left speaker. If it doesn't work, then the left speaker is faulty.

Now disconnect the wire from receiver's right-front terminal and connect to left-front terminal. If it doesn't work, you are either connecting to wrong terminal or the terminal/receiver is faulty.

At last, try using the "left" wire to connect the rigth speaker to right terminal. If it doesn't work, the wire is faulty.

P.S. The +/- doesn't matter for testing, the sound should go either. It is just needed to have all speakers connected in the same polarity, because else the sound waves would eliminate themselves.
