Sherwood receiver - AV-audio not working while audio-only fxns are OK
[thanks to expert who got me this far!] - i WAS able to get audio-only sound, so my original problem (DVD and cable picture work, but receiver gives no sound) is not a problem with the whole amplifier. receiver display that is different is: the word "digital" is flashing ... i'm pretty sure it wasn't flashing before. a friend suggested the receiver is seeking a digital signal it cant find...i think i pressed something inadvertently on either the vios remote or the universal remote, and in trying to fix it i probably screwed it up worse...any help is appreciated ...

Given that the Sherwood is a basic stereo/Dolby Pro Logic receiver, and that we have had sources where digital audio (coax and optical) are the standard for Dolby Digital and DTS for well over 15 years, and that HDMI is established now as the de facto standard for AV connections on many home AV products.... perhaps it's time to retire the Sherwood and look for something new.
Entry level price points for new, fully spec'd, AV receivers capable of dealing with HD audio, DD, DTS, Dolby ProLogiic- and ProLogic II have never been cheaper.
Sherwood is still a good brand. It has been joined by Yamaha (
RX-V377BL); Sony (STRDH750); Denon (AVR-S500BT) and Pioneer (VSX-524-K) at the entry-level price point of $249. In real terms these are probably a fraction of what you paid for the Sherwood all those years ago.
Another option is used equipment. There are some really good pre-HDMI AV receivers from Denon, Yahama and Pioneer available in the used market.
Hi,Need more info. Was the unit working then failed? tell me anything you noticed, this sounds like a fault in the audio output or power supply stages,I have had other receivers do this for variou reasons
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.
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.
