They 'look' okay?

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect 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.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

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.

I have a Kenwood VR-804 surround system receiver. Stand by light keeps blinking when turned on but no sound no nothing when turned on just powers up for a few seconds then shuts off with light blinking. I...


Blinking indicates that the power source has shut itself down because another component has died and it's shorting it. Unless you have experience in electronics it's time to take the receiver to a repair shop.

Turns on for three seconds then turns off!! whats wrong??


check your speaker wire, if you have the 2 wires touching it will shut down the rec. Take a good look at where thet go into the speaker, sometimes they make contact there.

I have a sherwood RD-6108 receiver that shuts off after 30 sec. of use


This is the overload protection circuit. Make sure not alot of dust build up inside and make sure no speaker connections are touching. Most likely being that it a sherwood you will want to consider replacement.
Thank you,

Klh home receiver problems


It is not a fuse problem, when a fuse is gone does not start at all.
It is probably the final amp circuit, there is a faulty IC in there that overheats after few seconds and the unit goes off by itself.

I turn on receiver Pioneer vsx d608, then few seconds later screen flashes "poweroff", then shuts off by itself


Check all speaker wiring for shorts. If nothing is found, unit obviously has circuit problems, have serviced.

My Onkyo Receiver TX 601 is turning itself off


Several things can cause this: Loud signal passages can momentarily draw high currents at the mains, especially if you have unit plugged into power stripe with other equipment. Or if unit is plugged into isolation transformer, current draw may exceed output of transformer. Too many speakers hooked to output or if one is bad (partially shorted due to overheating)

Sony STR-DE135: No audio output


first, at turn on you should hear a relay click then a few seconds later a second click. if you should hear the two relay clicks then check to see if you have both A and B speakers on, if you do shut B speaker off. next check the tape monitor switch make sure that it is off. if you should not hear the second relay click you have a problem with the unit and needs to be repaired.
