Nope..It just takes time to get through the matrix

that means your amp is fine, and your other inputs are unhappy..

you have a warranty on this beast?

Can i play records through my sherwood rd6108 receiver? When i try to play a record i get no sound no matter which channel i use.


Record players require a PHONO input on an amp.
Most amps no longer have this, so you will need to source out a pre-amp for the record player, and then you can plug the record player into the pre-amp and then hook the pre-amp into a tape, DVD or AUX input.

I have a RD-6108 5.1 Channels receiver that want to connect to my flat tv. Can you help me?


If you consider that a TV is just a lightshow, it's not that complicated...

Composite Video Out to composite video IN on the TV would be the minimalist absolute necessary connection for managing the receiver through On Screen Displays.

Unless you intend to dub video to a VCR or something, there is no reason to bring TV video into the receiver.

My preference is to send the BEST version of any medium (audio or video) directly from it's original source to the BEST ELECTRONICS that uses it; then send minimalist versions across for convenience and lo-fi watching/listening.


Any self-respecting modern TV has multiple hi-def video inputs, so run the Bluray, DVD, cable box video straight in and run the audio from those devices to the Sherwood.


Fewer expensive cables, no excessive connections to go bad, no unnecessary handling of the material.


I'm pleased to see the manual for this one (and the product's limited video capabilities) don't tempt the user to route everything through it on the way to the TV.

How do I reset the defaults on my Sherwood RD-8108 AV receiver?


I just got a tip from Sherwood tech support on resetting my Sherwood receiver, and it solved my problem perfectly. It's not the same model number but here's what I did: Put the receiver on Standby. Press and hold the Setup button for 3 seconds. When you see the model # on the display, press Enter. The word "Cleared" should show on the display. Hope it works for you also.

LG 55LH90 TV to Sherwood RD6500 receiver


That's what manuals are for.

Video Out on the receiver goes to Video In on the TV. That's all you really need.

I recmmend you grab any TV-related audio from wherever its source is for the highest fidelity sound (NOT the TV).

Would like to hook up two recievers to push all my speakers comfortably. I have a pioneer vsx d490 and a sherwood rd 6500. How wud i accomplish this?


I think you mean Pioneer VSX-D409.

Since the two receivers are similar and capable of driving everything else in the room, I guess you want to treat one receiver like a basic amp, like for a passive subwoofer, right?

However, still guessing your intent...

The VSX is a basic 5-channel amp (5 x 100w) but only has digital multichannel inputs. It has optical and coaxial digital inputs and an optical digital output.

The Sherwood has coaxial and optical digital inputs and no digital output, but it has analog inputs, so it would be easier to selectively use any or all of its amplifiers, which are about the same as the Pioneer's (gotta read the fine print - Sherwood uses a 6-ohm load instead of 8-ohm to get the numbers).

Choose the one you like to use for the control (master). Run its Sub Out to the other receiver's AUX input using an RCA splitter to feed both input channels. Attach the sub to one set of front speaker terminals. Configure theat receiver for NO SUB so it won't steal LFE from theis channel. Designate the FRONT speakers as Large.

Setup would be tricky because you have to choose a volume setting on the slave amp and stick with it. It might get changed after you set the levels and negate the setup efforts. OTOH, you would have the flexibility to change it independently if desired.

My $.02... If subwoofer power is all you need, why not just get a nice Carver 2-channel amp on eBay (2x100w would suffice), bridge it to 200 watts and blow the house up, figuratively? Then you could redeploy or sell the unused receiver.

FM Tuner in Sherwood RX-4105 stopped working


Check your antenna connections. Make sure your FM antenna is hooked up to the FM antenna terminal or jack on your Sherwood receiver. If you have the antenna hooked through the coaxial cable, check your coaxial cable with an ohmmeter for continuity. You can buy a volt-ohm meter as little as $12. Usually bad connection occur between coaxial cable and the the coax cable connectors. If that doesn't solve the problem, then there may be something wrong with your tuner card inside of your Sherwood receiver.

If you receivers display does not change channels or frequencies or AM or FM mode, when you try to change the channel or frequencies, or AM or FM mode, there may be something wrong with the front board of your receiver.

If there is something internally wrong your Sherwood receiver, you need to take it to a qualified technician that can fix it. Do not try to repair it yourself. If you don't know what you're doing, you can do far more damage to that Sherwood receiver to the point that would be very costly to repair.

Before you take your Sherwood receiver to a technician, try to unplug the receiver, and leave it unplugged for several minutes, and then plug it back in. If that doesn't solve the problem, then you need to take your Sherwood to a qualified technician.

No Sound


O1 is the OPTICAL input. C1 is the COAX input. Try pressing the DIGITAL INPUT button to cycle to the analog mode.

Left channel out


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.
