Question about Sherwood RX-4109

1 Answer

Sherwood RX-4109 receiver has no sound. Right speaker had no sound, and I tried to see if switching speaker connections in back receiver would help, but now neither speaker works, and there is not any sound on the headphone output, either, indicating the program is receiver-oriented, not speaker- oriented. What has failed? Is the unit shorted out? e-mail: rmartin@wfax.com

Maybe a shorted right speaker took out the other channel. Does it turn on now?

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

You can test the speaker for open or short by touching a small battery to the speaker wires. It should make static or click sounds. If not, it's dead. If it sparks and akes no sound it's shorted and dangerous to any amp.

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.

RX-4109 Remote Controlled Stereo Receiver with Phono Section

Unlike the budget stereo receivers now flooding the entry-level price points at dealers across the country, the Sherwood RX-4109 is designed and built in-house with the same quality and attention to detail we have been bringing to our audio gear for the last 50 years.

With 105 Watts RMS per channel, phono section, binding posts, a versatile remote control and switching for two pairs of loudspeakers, the only thing that bespeaks the word "budget" about the RX-4109 is its modest cost.

MSRP 179.95

I have a sherwood RX 4109.....can i hook a pair of 6 ohm speakers and then a powered sub?


By design, yes for one pair of 6-ohm speakers used at a time; depends on the sub for the second BUT there is no way to control its volume at the Sherwood.

Keeps turning itself off


If Both speakers are working at a low volume and you turn it up and it clips and shuts off you have one of 3 problems. you have over driven your speakers and one has shorted the voice coil but still will work at low volume, its a overload protection for ohms short in receiver. unhook each speaker and turn balance to the one hooked up and turn up receiver if it shuts off do the same with other speaker to determine which side is bad. 2 speaker wires are touching at speaker or receiver. 3 a bad receiver output transister. Good luck.
